The Worst Boss


Very hard to follow up that last post, but anyway - here is baby cushion's first appearance on the internet in photographical form...
How is he getting on, I hear you ask...
Well - he has settled right in. The dog has, after numerous talks and demonstrations, accepted that he is not actually a kitten, despite sounding and looking quite a bit like one.
Having a newborn in the house is kind of like having the worst boss ever - you have this person in charge who wants things done urgently, but can't tell you what it is they want, but they will get unreasonably angry if it's not done fast. They can't be reasoned with, you can't be prepared for their demands and they won't give you a decision to save their lives. Ah to be fair it's always food with him - he always just wants food - so it's not that much of a guessing game, more a "how long can we distract him from wanting food before we give it to him, so that he mightn't fall asleep in the first five seconds of eating" game.
Other big news - the proud mammy gushness hasn't worn off yet - he's actually able to flip himself onto his back from his stomach already, imagine... if there was an olympics for babies my little fella would rule the under 4 weeks category. Sure look at him waving at the camera on his leaving the hospital, that was when he was 2 days old, he can almost do Riverdance at this stage.
No other news really - watching alot of day time tv while waiting for my strength to return - have seen a couple of episodes of Fair City twice because the remote control was too far away, and when you're under a sleeping baby with a sleeping dog at your feet - you let them lie...

He is gorgeous! And so advanced for his age, have you called mensa?
Hope you are keeping well and getting some rest.

They keep getting better as they grow, but the working out what they want bit, often gets trickier! Can't believe you watched fair city once never mind twice!

Máire T. Robinson said...

Aw, he's gorgeous! Congratulations Niamh.

Titus said...

Yes, yes, call Mensa! Look, he's written on his own hat!
Gorgeous-looking boy, just the fabbist thing.

I was so severe with Titus the actual dog when the last two came home I'm pretty convinced he thought they were nuclear waste. He didn't go near them for 2 years.

What's Fair City? No need to actually answer that, taking it easy is all right now.

All sounds perfect.

Thanks Niamh - yes mensa are conducting tests right now.
Ah Socks - it's classic, especially second time round, you really get a feel for how memorable the lines were the first time round.
Thanks Máire!! :-)
He is Titus, lucky that he is too. Think the dog is adjusting alright to the new situation. Fair City is an irish soap that very few people here admit to watching, but i like to support local.
Thanks Rachel - my creative writing skills must be at their height so!

You know, he's still probably a better boss than that horrible chap you used to work for?

And really, Fair City - you are the only person I've ever met who watches it.

ps - Baba is gorgeous, call a child modeling agency as well as Mensa while you're at it.
