Giving Two Tits

A post on FB got me thinking this morning about how fickle people can be when it comes to children, and I know I’m guilty of this myself!

When Dex was born we were of course inundated with visitors. Visitors eager to hold my little monkey boy and lavish him (and us) with lovely gifts. I thought Dex was made for life. How wonderful that he had so, so many people around already that wanted to spend time with him, nurture him and care for him. God how dumb was I? It turns out people just really, really like babies but aren’t so keen on toddlers. The visitors have dried up immensely. It’s sad because Dex has this awesome personality that people should really experience. He’s funny and entertaining and so talkative!! I mean don’t get me wrong he’s not totally alone at all, he’s still got more than his fair share of people that adore him and really enjoy the time they spend with him. It’s just those that made such a deal of spending time with him when he was little and they just don’t give two tits about him now. And I know I’m massively guilty of this myself (the spending time with, not the two tits bit) but I’m playing the full-time-working-mother-of-a-toddler-I-wish-there-were-more-hours-in-a-weekend card. So to those who have had babies recently I’m sorry I’ve not seen you much (one in particular I’ve not seen at all, SORRY!) And to those that have children that I’ve not seen for ages, I’m sorry. I’m shite. Can I cash in my card (mentioned above?)

I can’t wait to go on baby holiday and see all my old mum mates and their sprogs. Get the kettle on ladies!

Thanks for reading

Mummy over and out
