Toothy smile

Malo at 6 months has just got his first tooth. It explains why he has been quite grouchy lately. I was dreading the day the wee fella started to grow up, but by jingo, when I felt that little toothy peg I was as proud as punch. We went to the Dowse and had some cake to celebrate.

Of course, the next day it had gone. Such is the fickle nature of these early achievements. It will reappear in its own good time.

Finn also is growing fast. At 2 1/2 he seems to have hit his teens - although I guess that is why everyoone has been going on about terrible 2's all this time? The woman at Storytime bookshop said that their behaviour at this age indicates what they'll be like for the rest of their life. Pah I say to that.

Pah is right. Our Becky turned evil overnight at 2yrs. At 3 1/2 she can be the most generous and delightful little girl - it's a phase and is hilarious when you are awake. At 3am, it is not so much fun. Her sister is 20 months and has mastered the slow motion falling down kicking and screaming supermarket special scream....carries the entire length of Woolworths....

Teeth eh? What a curse. Should have them removed before they come through, to spare all the pain and discomfort (to the parents).

Yeah, I think the good pretty well outweighs the bad!
