Acts of Reasoning

Matei, to his grandmother: Why can't Mummy and Daddy be here with us?
Grandmother: Because they have to go to work.
M: But WHY do they have to work?
G: So they can buy a house.
M: But we already have a house! So they don't need to...

If only my mum had told him it was to buy biscuits and Legos, I'm sure he would have embraced the concept of Z and I working overtime.

Matei: I think maybe there will be TWO babies.
Grandmother: Why do you think that?
M:Well, mummy has a big stomach because she is growing a baby. But Daddy also has a big stomach, so perhaps there is another one in there too...


I miss him enormously.

Ha! What did Z think to that?
Will Matei be home in time for the birth?

Z thought it was an equal mix of hilarious and mortifying. I thought it is a good payback for this .

No, Matei will be well away from anything Birth and Newborn related (less for his sake than due to my Ragged Nerves) until I fly over with the baby in September.

You're right, that is excellent payback. Well done Matei!

Nothing has made him quite as delightful as the advent of language. Possibly because it has also coincided with his increased ability to sit still.

:-) this makes reminds me of another story... There's no reason why you should know but Emma is a twin. She told me that when she and her sister were born, Matthew (her slightly older brother) came into the room and first looked at one baby and said "Ah, baba" then, not having been warned that there were twins, he looked at the second baby and exclaimed "Baba!!!"
