a damning portrait of young parents

Matei sought me out, aghast.
"Mummy, Helena is a very bad mother*! She dropped her baby on the floor and then just left her there!"


* Although she clearly has much to master in terms of techique, Helena looooooves human babies. She squats by them and chats to them and pats their fluffy little heads and treats them with all the interest and reverence she normally reserves for the Animal Kingdom**. I'm not sure whether this is because she considers them some kind of species of naked cats, and aside from occasional attempts to hug them with her whole body, she's as gentle as can be.


** My daughter's current vocabulary is cat, bird, dog, duck, giraffe. She addresses each household cat by its name but never acknowledges me at all. I am considering derssing up in a giant cat suit in order to arouse her respect and interest.

Don't feel bad, when Sarah was learning to talk, she said *daddy*, then *cat*, then *dog* and finally mama. I guess it all turns around though, because, there are times, when I go to call her and get her name mixed up with either the Bella (the dog) or one of the cats' names.
