Revenge of the parents…

My son’s personality is developing at an alarming rate. If you read all the baby books, you’re told all about the sweet little personality that’s going to develop and how you’re supposed to nurture it and enjoy the ride. Gmpffff. My son has inherited all my really BAD personality traits and seeing them reflected in this little person is NOT sweet and does not make me want to nurture and enjoy it. Chatted to my dad the other day about his grandson’s tantrums and I swear my dad got this silly, almost gleeful grin on his face and I’m sure I heard a chuckle! I took him on about the chuckle I thought I heard and he coughed and spluttered as he tried to suppress a full-blown guffaw! He then admitted that as MY father, MY DAD! He pretended that his Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow bushes needed some attention and as he was walking towards them I’m sure I saw his shoulders convulse with laughter! Seriously?!

Ooh, Ooh – I’m going to start doing the ups and downs thing!

Ups
1) I have a loving husband and mostly gorgeous son
2) I love my job!

Downs
1) The two angel-pies that fell out of their Daddy’s car… utterly devastating… so sad.
2) The Salt portion of my Salt ‘n Pepper hair is overtaking the Pepper portion!

    Yup – getting around to it. I’ve been neglecting ME for so long, but I do have a olan. Am working from the inside out… First fixing back that’s buggered and working on saggy tummy, then have a full body wax as I have hairs sprouting from places I didn’t know could be hairy! Then mani and pedi and hair revamp!

    Oops just realised a gremlin creeped in and deleted an entire sentence between MY father and MY DAD! What I was trying to say there is “He then admitted that as MY father he’s deriving so much giggles out of watching my struggle with the tyke’s personality and with him doing to me exactly what I did to MY DAD!
