When Daniel arrived I used to have the usual conversations about breastfeeding etc, but the conversation I used to hate the most was when the Smug Mommies used to say that their babies all slept through from 6 weeks. Blah. Daniel only graced us with a full night’s sleep at around 6 months.
Then came the conversations about kids’ eating habits. Really hate those conversations, but we have our good days.
I’m in the potty training stage with Daniel now and all I hear now from the SM’s is how their little angels came and asked to have their nappies taken off and only ever had one little accident conveniently in the garden. Double blah.
Daniel has so far managed to pee on:
The neighbours’ brand new chair
His car seat
In the ficus pot outside
Probably in the fish pond
On the mat in front of the toilet
My mother’s persian rug (that one went down really well)
In the PnP trolley
My niece peed on my sister-in-law cellphone and I remember thinking at the time tsk tsk she should teach her better. Blah on me, I’m SO over that.
Shame, he is still learning and we do encourage him, but I really, really like my couch.
