Escaping

The sprat has decided that the only way to sleep is a) on a person or b) on his tummy. We get lectured repeatedly on the dangers of letting your baby sleep on his/her tummy. They are ten times more likely to die of Sudden Infant Death syndrome on their stomach than on their backs. On the other hand if they won't sleep they are also ten times more likely to be irritating to their parents. What I am to do ? And his sleeping on people/me really interferes with my need to do other things, like write, clean, cook and move.

So yesterday when hubby came home he almost had the baby tossed to him while I shot out of the house into the wind and rain in order to MOVE. I'd been a baby mattress for far too much of my day. It felt absolutely fabulous to be outside, moving, and away from the kid. The only break I have had today is while he has been on his tummy on the couch. Plunkett would not be impressed...

Pizza and chocolate pudding for tea - sounds like a ghastly combination to me!, but it selling well here!

Thesis progress is neglible. Bugger.
