The end is in sight…

Soon, Mummy goes back to work and will be enjoying three days a week of peace and quiet, grown-up conversation and clothes without sick on them. At least, Mummy would be if she didn’t work in a primary school. Rebel Baby is to go to a childminder for two days, and has a visit this afternoon to get used to the idea and – presumably – give the lovely childminder a chance to back out while she still can. As such, RB is under strict instructions not to let the side down: to be civil, polite, gentle with other children, clean and quiet.

Unfortunately, this week she has mastered a number of new skills. These are not the crawling, walking, talking and reciting the alphabet backwards type skills Mummy was aiming for. Instead, she now enjoys sharing food by taking it out of her own mouth to offer, and won’t stop until you pretend to eat it. She throws up on the carpet and licks it up again. She likes to help with nappy changes by ramming both hands down the front of her nappy and trying to grab the contents. Mummy is feeling #soproud and #soblessed.  She very much hopes the childminder has low expectations…
