Top of the day to you all. As it's Wednesday there's a Baby Centre blog for you. http://www.baby.co.uk/mum_stories/the-frustrations-of-toddler-talking/. This one isn't quite as contentious as last week's but still an interesting topic none-the-less. Read it or else...
So on to day today and if you go down to the woods today you're going to be pretty shocked by how many people are there. Today I went, with Funny Mummy and Funny Daddy, to a teddy bear's picnic in a woodland park down the road and by Jove it was busy. And to quote Funny Daddy who was quoting Sartre "Hell is other people". Indeed this is somewhat true especially in such a confined area and in school holidays.
But there was enough to do so that you didn't feel too hemmed in. The wee man and his little friend got to ride a merry-go-round but alas because the man in charge of the cup ride was such a meanie we weren't allowed on the cup ride. Well the wee man was allowed by himself but more than likely he would be the child who would stand up and try to jump out while the ride was in motion. And that wouldn't be a conversation I would want to have with The Chancellor.
The thing though that really stood out today was the amount of toddlers, of both sexes, who had pierced ears. Did I miss a toddler fad? Am I a bad parent for not keeping up with junior trends? I'm not sure but to honest the last thing I'm going to do is take the wee man off and have a bit of metal fired into his ear. I wouldn't want to be around when The Chancellor got home to find that this had happened. Anyway the whole thing's a bit daft really and the kids looks pretty ridiculous especially the very small boys. Poor mites. I would had a word but the mums were all pretty scary and I wouldn't have come out alive.
At the end of the day the wee man had so much fun it took him ten seconds before he was asleep in the car and I could eat the rest of his lunch and drink his drink from his sippy cup in an ASDA car park. Living the dream.
