Admission

Tom and I were sitting in the pub last night drinking our pints of bitter and eating cheese when Tom suddenly announced: ‘I feel I hardly know Dolly’. He then went on to admit to me in a very serious tone that when he was holding Dolly yesterday evening and looking at her, he felt genuinely concerned that if she were in a line-up with lots of other babies he probably wouldn’t be able to pick her out.

Let's hope the line-up never happens! Don't think babies can be charged with crimes under current UK law so fairly unlikely. Although perhaps they should. Think of all the havoc they cause! Sleep deprivation, chaos, noise disturbance, environmental pollution...If they weren't so impossibly adorable, the prisons would be inundated with the little tinkers!

I'd definitely recognise mine in a line-up, but if I'm honest... I wouldn't admit to it! "No, I'm very sorry officer, but none of those babies is mine. Right, well if that's all, I'll be off for a spot of child-free lunch..."

Ahhhh- but they do change so quickly and you have to make a real conscious effort to look at them, rather than through them.
At least he was honest...LOL

Iota said...

Duuh, Tom. Even I could do that. She's the one who looks like Phil Mitchell.

Iota is funny. You should tell Tom that! He just needs to look for Phil Mitchell. To be honest, my husband took a while to 'bond' with baby number 2, I think because I was concentrating on baby whilst he was looking after my big girl. But lo and behold, once she started smiling at him, it clicked, and now they are like two peas in a pod. x

Oh bless him. Mac spent the first two months of his life being called Matthew by his father who had somehow got him mixed up with his eldest son. not quite sure how to be honest

Elsie Button said...

your comments made me laugh!

confused take that fan- Tom is Iota's biggest fan! and that is exactly it - it is because betty won't let tom go anywhere near little dolly that he is missing out!

Who's the Mummy? said...

That reminds me - at our wedding, we had table confetti made from photos of all our guests, including the children in attendance.

Halfway through the wedding breakfast, one of my friends picked up a photo of a baby and said: "This is lovely, whose baby is it?"

"Er, that's your baby."

Happens to the best of us!

I love this and the post about the first three months... wretchedly honest. Goes to prove the point my brother is always making about all babies looking the same!
