Poorly she may be, but stupid she aint!

She can’t walk or talk or any of those unnecessary things, but this morning my snotty, dribblesome baby did something much better. She knelt up in bed, crawled over to the bedside table, found herself a handkerchief and then thoroughly wiped her own face….

Now, all she needs to learn is (a) it’s best to start with a clean hanky and (b) the object is to clean your face, not move the gunk around and (c) when you’ve finished, mummy’s cooing expressions of how-clever-you-are delight will quickly turn to horror if you then use the same hanky to “clean” the pillow. Yes, you, don’t look so pleased with yourself. Drat, she’s too cute.
