We hadn't anticipated being in there so long today, so we felt bad when our 3 year old got upset that she'd peed in her diaper so much it was falling off her and in our haste we hadn't brought a spare along. She was distressed that her dress would get wet with urine, so she promptly whipped that off too and ran out of the little room they'd put us in and proceeded to do her "bum dance" in the hallway. Her "bum dance" consists of her getting completely nude then turning around and waving her arse at you. All class in our household. Thankfully, we managed to convince her to put her dress back on and just go back to the car with daddy and get a new diaper there. It was hilarious. Thankfully, we were the only witnesses to this "one night only" performance, although somewhere there might have been some security guard staring at one of the monitors with some bemusement.
Anyway, prior to today's episode which could easily have done with a Benny Hill Yakkity Sax theme underlying it, I had the honor of helping to bring in to this world another little person chock full of potential to do great things and hopefully deliver a small measure of goodness into this world. Funnily enough, she does slightly resemble the aforementioned Benny Hill, but I'm guessing she'll outgrow that phase soon enough. When attached to my breast, she's prone to making pirate faces (one eye squinting) and every little bit of flatulence she produces is interpreted by my other daughter as a challenge, to which she responds with gusto. Yet again, all class in our house.
My uterus hurts like a mother (that's irony), and in the short time I've been away from work, one of my student has been expelled for drug possession, one kicked out for insulting a number of teachers using quite colorful language, and one strongly suspects she is now pregnant... But life is still good. I love my little family and I'm so grateful for all the goodness I've got in my life. I'm spoiled, and I know it.
