MY SON SO FAR : THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL


Today is my son’s 4th birthday. Four years ago today he hit my life like a bombshell and four years on I’m still semi-bewildered and mostly just a step behind his ever evolving self.

I want to take stock on this momentous day. Look back on our disasters ( breast feeding! ) and our triumphs ( there’s a poo in the loo…..not behind the only potplant in the town library).

So here is my son so far : the good, the bad, the beautiful .

THE GOOD :

– eats well

– has good teeth and thus no fear of the dentist

– sleeps in own bedroom ( only managed this a few months ago )

– takes a bath regularly ( after a fair amount of begging, bargaining and bullshitting )

– doesn’t pick baby sister up by the neck

– is potty trained ( most of the time)

– can behave in restaurants for short periods of time

THE BAD

– loves to startle us all with sudden eardrum bursting screetches

– answers the phone by picking it up and then saying nothing so that the caller eventually hangs up

– asks for pasta/ cheese on bread / yoghurt with raisins/scrambled egg /  whatever and then refuses to eat it

– has whole conversations in Xhosa ( the language of his nanny ) in his sleep….LOUD conversations…

 

THE BEAUTIFUL

 

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOY OF MY HEART.
