doing the bum shuffle

15 Apr

For some time now the young man has managed to get from A to B in a haphazard manner which never involved crawling but rather rolling and pulling and sheer determination. Now however, he has mastered the bum shuffle.
Advantages for baby..quick, effective method for getting places and in correct position on arrival for grabbing things. Disadvantages: none
Advantages for mammy..none! Disadvantages: inability to keep an eye on baby at all times as do not possess superhuman powers hence baby discovered where he shouldn’t be or on the brink of danger!

Scenario – The Kitchen.
Lachlan in his baby tent playing. Mammy emptying dishwasher.
Turn around, Lachlan is in the wine fridge
(return Lachlan to tent)
Turn around, Lachlan is approaching the dishwasher cutlery rack
(return Lachlan to tent)
Turn around, Lachlan is attempting to eat out of the cats food bowl
(return Lachlan to tent)
Turn around, Lachlan is stuck underneath his highchair
and on and on and on……

At least Im getting plenty of exercise 🙂

    I love your storytelling technique. It’s brilliant! Can just imagine the whole scenario. Hahaha, both farmor and Auntie laughed. What a naughty boy!
