Oh cute

Master X is going through that clingy phase where even sitting on the couch is deemed to be too far away for his liking. Come on kid, I am only three feet away! He has this new sound that accompanies his dislike for when I ‘leave his space’. It is something between the call of a bird of prey and a high pitched fear scream. It is scary. And reasonably loud when we are out and about. Yesterday at the mall we attracted many glances glares in our direction, including in the line at the supermarket. All I kept thinking was ‘what do you want me to do about it?’. Now I feel bad for all those times I glared at parents with their littlies. Yup, I was one of those people once upon a time, so I guess I deserve to be glared at and to have an embarrassingly loud child when out in public. We do get the ‘oh so cute’ looks too, which I find to be quite amusing. Especially given the sound and that Master X is usually covered head to toe in some kind of funky gunk from breakfast/lunch/dinner. How do you keep your kids clean when feeding out in public! I guess if I could remember to pack a bib…

It was a delightful experience, eating lunch with my baby yesterday at the mall. I had just purchased a delicious Sumo Salad as part of my new eat to thin plan of eating mainly salads, when Master X piped up loudly in what I translated as a call for him to be eating too. So I pulled out his packed lunch of mushy veggie and began to feed him between bouts of feeding myself. One spoon for me, one spoon for you. He gobbled down his lunch, I think he thought that we were eating the same thing. Cue ‘oh cute’ looks from other shoppers.

  3. Despite the “snags” you endured during your outing, I wish I could have another babe after reading this post – for reals!

    Ain’t gonna happen though because if I got pregnant whilst on lithium & tranylcypromine at the ripe, old age of 46, I’d have Frankenbaby!!!
