Di­ary Of A Bad Dad

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Thorntononthursday -

Is it pos­si­ble for a 10- month- old baby to show off? If it is, Baby T is show­ing signs of be­ing a big­ger at­ten­tion seeker than Jor­dan. Santa came to Thorn­ton Tow­ers and so did Baby T’s gran­nies which seemed to be the cue for my dar­ling lit­tle daugh­ter to launch a charm of­fen­sive of epic pro­por­tions.

Not that she needed to of course as her gran­nies would adore her come what may.

Baby T has had a blind spot when it comes from drink­ing out of her cup. She’ll hap­pily drink from it as long as mum or dad were hold­ing it for her.

We’ve spent weeks try­ing to get her to do it her­self with­out success, and had de­cided she was just be­ing a princess.

On Christ­mas Eve with my mu­makaYork­shire Mother in at­ten­dance Mrs T rather sar­cas­ti­cally ( a bit harsh see­ing as how she is only 10 months old) said to Baby T: “Show granny how you drink fr0m your cup.’’

At which point Baby T picked it up and started slurp­ing away mer­rily like she’d been do­ing it for months .

I swear she also shot her muma look which said: “I’ll do things when I’m ready, not when you are.’’

As if this wasn’t enough, on Christ­mas morn­ing she de­cided the time ( noth­ing to do with hav­ing an au­di­ence!) was right to start crawl­ing.

I can’t wait til next Christ­mas Day when she’ll prob­a­bly greet the gran­nies on a uni­cy­cle be­fore an­nounc­ing she’s cook­ing the turkey.
