Mamamama...

Happy mothers' day, folks! And happy mothers' day to me, huzzah! Henry celebrated by not sleeping properly this weekend - I think it was teething and/or bellyache related, but it wasn't terribly fun either way.

But who could stay mad at this face?

We have started watching Playschool on a DVD that Mum brought over - Henry is really into it. It's quite interesting to watch as a grownup, I'm seeing all the sideways glances and smirks and stuff ups that I never noticed before. It must be pretty hard to keep a straight face all the time...

This led to Ross and I trying to decide how one gets a job as a Playschool presenter. We figured it's some kind of drama classes, a good singing voice, and most important: the ability to make a convincing elephant noise. Alas, my elephant noise is quite sad and unimpressive, so it's unlikely that I'll ever make it on TV.

Henry and I went and visited a friend from playgroup today, and we had a really nice time. Her baby is just three weeks older than Henry, so they're at a good age to interact with each other without hurting each other. She also has a fenced in yard and two little dogs, so Nina came and played, too!

I sometimes think I should make more of an effort to socialise, both for my sake and Henry's. It's super good for him to learn how to deal with other babies, and it does me good to get out of the house. On the other hand, I'm not one of those people who gets sick of alone time, so I'm probably getting a suitable amount of human contact - hopefully Henry feels the same way.

Getting out and about is nearly always worth it, it's just effort to make yourself do it.

Happy mothers day! xxx
