He touches his son, who is eating breakfast, on the head before going upstairs to get some sleep. In the darkness of the night, the father gets up to get ready to go back to work. His son also gets out of bed, goes to the kitchen to grab a box of Cheerios and a jug of milk. When his father sees that the boy is out of bed, he asks why he is up, saying it's late. The boy tells his father that he just wants to eat breakfast with him. The two sit in the dark kitchen and eat Cheerios together.
