1 Your once beloved and regular blog becomes severely neglected, comments even taking several days to respond to
2 Laundry is now a daily occurance
3 (Related to 2) You no longer have the biggest collection of clothing in the house
4 You take an hour to pack for going out to the shop for milk
5 You don't know how it got to be Thursday again
6 You really enjoy the projected stars and moons on the ceiling and the lullaby music that goes with it
7 Music takes on a new meaning "A change will do you good" refers to nappies, "I got a feeling that tonight's going to be a good night" means that you believe you might have more than 1 hour sleep at a time
8 You have hundreds of visitors
9 Strangers smile at you when you're out, but they're not really smiling at you
10 Yoghurt gets in your hair and it makes absolutely no difference
Happy Thursday everyone!

So, baby only wakes twice at night, which is pretty good going, but each time spends between 1 and 4 hours awake, he's the creative type, experimenting with time, challenging the accepted norms of what we treat as daytime, and how we conventionally behave at night...
Anyway, during on of these wakenings in recent nights i took a sip from the pint glass of water beside the bed (a pint glass that used to be present for very different purposes, staving off hangovers etc) Terrifyingly, I felt between my lips - along with the refreshing liquid - something small, hard, and definitely unwaterlike. I hadn't been awake enough on picking up the glass to know for sure what was in it, so I spat - only to find a sad little "dead of natural causes" earwig sinking to the base.
When Mr VC awoke in the morning I told him of my ordeal, holding up the glass itself for proof if proof were needed
"This earwig was in my mouth last night" I said
"Wouldn't that be a mouthwig then?" he asked
