Diaper-free Drew

This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

On 24th Nov 2010, our 3 year old daughter, Drew, went to bed nappyless!

A board meeting was held to which Mummy, Daddy and Drew all attended (Harriet was unavailable since she was asleep, but the minutes will be circulated accordingly).

Drew raised the issue and after due consideration, an agreement was reached which suited all parties.

Mummy and Daddy agreed to allow Drew to sleep through the night without her nappy, on the proviso that the mirror light in the bathroom remains on and Drew takes herself to the toilet and is responsible for all toilet trips (including all logjammers). Mummy and Daddy would only need to be consulted in escalation circumstances only (e.g. Logjammer misalignment, inappropriate use of fingers and loo roll, matress water ingress.)

All parties agreed to proposal and a review has been set for 3 weeks time.

Pulling Hair

Reaching out with her hand, she plunged her fingers into the soft golden tresses. Wrapping the silky blonde locks swiftly around her fingers, she was ready. She'd done this before. She knew what she was doing. With one quick short movement, she tightened her grip on the shiny strands, flung her head back and with a smile starting to appear, she pulled. Hard...

...Sounds like a scene from a female cage-fight doesn't it? Or a paragraph belonging to a Jackie Collins novel.


That's my youngest, Harri, learning that pulling hair gets her attention. Unwanted attention. But she gets it. Boy, I hope she grows out of this one soon!!
