Madeline our little princess and bundle of joy is now 10 months old. Hooley Dooley, what a time to be a dad! You haven't lived until you've got a little girl calling you mum (even if you're dad or a beloved kids character). Why is everything Mum? What's up with that? Apparently the answer to lifes' problems isn't Drinking, Drugs, Twitter, or even Facebook! It's Mum! My wifey Elena is the best.
Madeline is at that age now where you can expect the un-expected. No one gave me a manual saying at 10 months she'll take her socks off and put them in her mouth while we're in Big W - not the first time mind you. Why didn't someone tell me that kids like to wake up at 5am to watch Bear in the Big Blue House then go back to sleep at 8am.
If you don't believe that God has a sense of humour then you haven't got a 10 month old or a little person for that matter. For example. We were in Safeway Supermarket a couple of days ago and all of a sudden Maddie starts 'talking'. Since Elena is originally from the United States of America I wasn't too sure what accent Madeline was trying to impersonate. We came to the conclusion she sounded like a 10 month old female version of the Warner Bros Character Tasmania Devil that just breathed in a whole 50 kg bottle of Helium with Raspberries and all. This went on for 10 solid minutes with people looking at us like we've taught her this.
That has got me wondering: What is the funniest thing your child has ever done while being out and in public? Leave a comment.
