A TOOTH, a tooth, my kingdom for a tooth. When will this first 'little piggy' arrive?
Charlotte is having bouts of miserable baby time. She has a cough, where she has either picked up a virus or it is to do with the amount of saliva she is producing whilst teething (that's what the doc said anyway).
Her cheeks go bright red and she is not the little angel baby anymore.
Took to sleeping in the spare room to save getting up all the time to deal with Lady C. Not ideal but it saves distrubing Helen who needs her beauty sleep to cope with her demanding day in the City.
Although Helen has had some time off work recently and as much as we love her being around, Lady C's routine has been thrown all over the place.
How many people out there experience the same thing when their partners are off work ?
Back to the same old routine tomorrow though, as Helen returns to work. We will miss her.
Mother's Day was Helen's first. Aaaah!
STOP PRESS: We have big news folks - tune in again soon ...
Charlotte mood: Grrr .. gargle ... cough ... dribble ... grrrrr.
Charlotte feed: Loves Ella's Kitchen. Ella, I love you.
Stress factor: Bringing up babies is hard. Mums-and-stay at home dads, I salute you. Email me to compare notes: firstname.lastname@example.org
