Lucky Dove! What tastes you'll remember come the glum of winter.
For anyone needing a morning giggle; while in the classroom yesterday helping a little child try on every uniform while his dad played with his baby brother a mother rushed in and popped her baby in the ball pool and rushed off with her elder child to use the loo.
The poor father was horrified that anyone could just leave their baby in a room with strangers! She was gone for 15 minutes and the poor chaps face the entire time was complete disbelief. I explained to him that it's not uncommon for us to be young babies (often while the rest of the family go on fire engine rides).
He commented how I must be really good with children.
I told him that actually I had no idea how to care for such a young child but found if you look after them like you do the dog it seems to work... you know the stuff; don't let them chew on the chair leg, or pee up anything, leave a bowl of water out if it's warm...
(Fear not he laughed: but seriously I have no idea what you're meant to do with a strangers baby).
