The birthday party

Took Poopee to her first ever birthday party - a friend's 4 year old birthday party.

It was quite a strange experience. Very awkward moments indeed.

I was bombarded with twenty or so women - all mothers or mothers to be, lavishing attention to their own babies/children and/or other people's babies/children, discussing certain impending births, and in particular - a friend of a friend's who just gave birth this morning (hmm.. ahh...her water broke first then it was over and done with very quickly!).

It was mumzilla overdrive. The chaos nearly sent my otherwise idle ovary into ovulation overdrive.

Me and Poopee had a pretty nice time. She wanted to explore the house, walking rather wobbly with me partially supporting her. A few mums commented that my full-headed girl look a little like Suri Cruise - the Asian version of course. It is rather complimentary to be told my gorgeousness resembles the child of movie stars. But not so complimented to think I might have given birth silently like Katie.

New trick today - she has developed a temper. You take an object of interest off her hand - she chucks the biggest tantrum and jumps up and down to display her dissatisfaction/anger - and if you EVEN try to pacify her with another toy - she grabs it and throws it away with as much force as possible.

Nice work, darling.

Hey Drew...

just dropped in to say Happy Mothers Day!

(Tricky's tempers are incredible, he can even get the shits in his sleep.)
