See my kid up there? Angelic-looking little blonde hair, blue eyed thing? She is totally kicking my arse/ass at the moment.
She's rounding up to 18 months so I kind of go, ok maybe she is starting the terrible twos early (tantrums started from 11 months, she likes to get in the bad behaviour early), but our days are spent with her systematically doing one naughty thing after another - she will run from playing with the electrical socket, to pulling rubbish out of the bin to drinking water from Georgie's bowl. All things she is very clear are not good things to do. It's a game that lasts ALL DAY. I understand about testing us, blah blah blah and we do new things every day and I try to have lots of fun and different activities, but LORDY I am TIRED and need you to SIT ON THE FLOOR and look at pictures of DUCKS for 5 minutes while Mummy mainlines TEQUILA.
She has started this new trick, which is ridiculously clever. If she wants to be picked up - she is, but if I am in the middle of something I want her to learn some patience (darling, mummy will just finish washing the dishes and will pick you up as soon as she is finished) what she has started doing is lying on the floor PRETENDING she has fallen over and will kick and flail and say either "uh-oh uh-oh uh-oh" (what we say when something has been dropped) or "ouch ouch ouch ouch" so that someone will pick her up IMMEDIATELY she then sees you come over to her and with a big grin puts her arms up to be picked up. I fell for this about 3 or 4 times before I saw her start the whole show. SHE IS ALREADY SMARTER THAN ME, THAT IS NAUGHTY GENIUS RIGHT THERE.
Lucky she is so cute and sleeps for 13 hours at night and another 2 or so during the day, because otherwise the wolves in the woods would be raising her.
