Introducing Squidge — 10 Comments

  1. Happy Birthday Squidge! You obviously find washing machines more entertaining than television. Your keen attention to the programme dial just above your reach indicates that you may study engineering some day.

    • As soon as she can reach that dial, she'll be opening a cleaning business.  I have high hopes for that kid.

    • Wow! That clip has thirty views.  Does that mean it has gone "viral"?  I often wondered what that meant.

  2. Come off it, old fellah.     

    My No2 daughter born on 19 Dec

    My No1 son on the 24 Dec

    My Dad on 24 Dec

    My older sister 1 Jan

    Me ?   The 27 Dec.   Just a little younger than your Dad; I was 79 last Sunday.

    I blame the Spring weather {;o)}

  3. Cute kid. I enjoyed when my kids were at that age, but by God I'm glad I don't have to deal with it anymore! 🙂 Being a grandfather is so much better. You can hand them back to mum when they get too boisterous! I also don't miss the major logistical exercise involved in just driving to the supermarket.

    Pushchair? Check. Nappies? Check. Wet wipes? Check. Bottle? Check. Spare set of clothes? Check. Rattle? Check. Rusks? Check. Tissues? Check. Plastic disposal bags? Check. Baby talc? Check. Etc etc etc. It's akin to a major military exercise.

    • Being a grandparent is like being parent only there's an on/off switch.  Even the site of you little list above is enough to bring me out in a sweat.

      And then they grow a bit and it's all clothes and school and "have you done you homework?" and demands for this that and everything else "because my friend has one".

      Yes.  It's nice being a grandparent.

      • That has happened on a couple of occasions, though I think that was more deliberate than a case of forgetfulness.
