Don't tell Santa Claus, but I love it.
This was not the first wilful incident of late. No Siree.
In a catalogue of wayward deeds, the boy is on the fast track to the naughty step (aka physio bench).
|Well I thought that session went well!|
|I will get those wipes somehow |
and then I want mummy's toe
|Listen cat: do not mess with me!|
He woke up crying at ten thirty last night when I was trying to catch up with 900201000 (husband was out so devil TV could be viewed), but then after checking the usual (poo, milk, too hot, too cold, cuddle, no cuddle) I put Mozart mobile on loop and left him to it. Half an hour later when the wailing was at fever pitch, (and 90210 was finished - hey Adriano's career is on the rocks. The rocks I tell ya!) I brought him downstairs. The stinker then started thudding his leg against mine until I unzipped his sleeping bag and noticed one of his bed socks had fell off. Yeah and so, you say! Well, as soon as I put the sock back on and zipped him back up, he was all smiles and giggles. "Bleur dar see hera" he said. Then strained his neck to look upstairs - his way of saying: "carry me back up now duck". I kid you not he was asleep in seconds.
|Stay back or I'll jab you in the neck!|
So is that five strikes you are out? The elves are out compiling their lists so thank fuggery foo Gabe hasn't a clue who this bearded geezer is yet.
And why do you think I am delighting so much in my child's mischievousness? Is she a crazy lady you ask? Well because not so long ago (months not years) he could barely move his head and if he did he'd get sick. If he hated the scary dolly with the touchy parts he couldn't muster up the energy to tell you. His only relief was a small splash in the bath but that was fairly static and his days were spent alternating between feeding and vomiting.
We probably had more interaction from his teddies then we did from him.
Life was all about nutrition and trying to stay alive; now it is about tantrums, giggles and misplaced socks.
Long may it continue.
