Nocturnal Parenting


Nocturnal Parenting

Daddy! Daddy!
Daddy, help me get up. I’m stuck in bed.
Stuck?
In bed, Daddy, I can’t get up.
Is that why you woke me up at midnight?
Yes, Daddy. I’m cold too. My pajamas are too thin.
Oh, okay.
(He gives her a hug.)
Are you going to get me up, darling?
What do you mean, Daddy?
Oh, you know what I mean, Jennifer. You know very well.
Not that, Dad, not a second time.  I already played with it once.
That’s not enough when you wake Daddy up in the middle of the night.
But I’m cold.
Here.
(He hands her a bathrobe hanging on the door.)
That was your mother’s robe, Jennifer.
But I don’t know where Mommy is.
She’s in heaven, Jennifer. Put your lips there. That’s a good girl. Lick it with your tongue under the head of it, darling. Yes.
I don’t want to wear Mommy’s robe.
No talking, Jennifer. Be quiet now.
Okay, Daddy.
(She keeps sucking. He moans in atavistic pleasure.)
Yes! What a good little Jennifer you are tonight.
