The McBaby has damaged my shoulder by simply collapsing onto the floor when he doesn't agree with the direction in which I'm taking him.

"Do you have to collapse like that?" I asked him sharply.

"Sorry mummy. I'll do claps like this instead," he said, clapping his hands.

Chinese New Year

Gung hei fa choi! We took McBaby to a Chinese restaurant to mark the new year and when the waitress asked us what we'd like to order, he said:

"Chips and jam" please.

The town crier

"Hello. Are you a pirate?"



I know who he is!


Animal poses

I've been searching high and low for ages for a yoga class that the McBaby and I can do together. So high and low in fact, that I even looked into the possibility of teaching them myself. So I was thrilled to see that Dandelion Wellbeing between Hungerford and Marlborough were offering two classes in half term and duly booked on.

They were great! if only the McBaby had been better behaved and had done what he was told, instead of escaping mid way through a downward dog and having a tantrum. Tantrums are never good but somehow, within the hallowed and relaxed space of a yoga studio, their volume is amplified.

Anyway, he's got a real talent for yoga, with good balance and strong legs. We did all of the animal poses, the cat, the dog, the cow, the rabbit, the frog. And a special one for the McBaby - who even knew there was an elephant yoga pose?
