Walk like a man… albeit a drunk one

Last week I decided that the true mark of a mother is the willingness to wipe a thick green caterpillar of snot from your baby’s face with your bare hand when there is no tissue available.  Today I have revised that opinion.  I now think that the real proof is a willingness to use one of these snot-sucking devices which I have just purchased from Waitrose *shudder*

So – yes, suffice to say there is still much snot, which is interfering with Jim-Jam’s sleep, and sadly no progress at all on his scant appetite and scrawny monkey-limbs.  But he does at least seem a bit more chipper so I hope that he is on the mend.  (After some consideration, we think that a lot of his recent misery might have been a reaction to his MMR jab.)

Anyway this is only a quick postette in order to share a little video that we took of his recent toddling attempts in the park, in which he is wearing his silly squeaky shoes and falls on his bum a lot.  It would probably play better at high speed with a Charlie Chaplin soundtrack…


About Susan Flockhart

Bonsai lady-geek and blogger. I can hardly recall what I used to blog about pre-microbes, but these days I generally ramble about motherhood, nonsense and whatever's going on the world of tiny people
