Eight things The Boy has learnt
Yes, that's his name on this Blog. See my previous post.
Eight things that The Boy has learnt in the last little while:
1. How to ask a question. You point at something, anything, and say: "Huh-Daa?" And you do it about 50 times in a row, moving your finger in a semi-random way.
2. If you go out in the snow and, in anger, you rip off your gloves, socks, shoes, beanie and protective plastic stroller cover, you'll just get more angry. It's a fact.
3. That if you hold your breath, and tense your neck and hold out your arms with a deep intensity, you are communicating simply: "I want, and I want now..."
4. That every button should be pressed, every lid should come off, every key has a keyhole, every door should be open, every book off it's shelf, and every phone has someone on the end of the line to 'talk to'.
5. That you can easily and meaningfully talk with no syntax, no verb, no subject or object. In fact, no grammar whatsoever. And at this stage in life, no one will correct you. Sweeet.
6. That a smile can cover a multitude of sins. Apologies to the Apostle Peter: 1 Peter 4:8
7. The value of TV early in the morning. [Homer: "See Marge, you knock TV and then it helps you out. I think you owe someone an apology."]
8. How to turn off the TV. ["Good Boy"]
If you read this Blog for the first time, post a message. Let me know that you are here! Or even if you've been here a few times.
PS The Pic of The Boy sleeping in the Cot is taken in the middle of the night. It was taken with a flash in the total dark.
