Me and Mum

Mum and I are having a bit of a stand off at the moment.
It started a few days ago when my 7th tooth started to come through. For some reason mum thinks I am being unreasonable grinding my teeth on her boobs when I am drinking milk. I am simply trying to find the right position for my tongue and teeth now the inside of my mouth has changed but mum is a bit angry at the 7 toothsized open wounds she has round each nipple.
Mum is also annoyed that I like to have milk during the night. She says I am too big a girl for milk during the night. Maybe I am too big but I like it so I am going to win our fight. Mum says she is going to win.
Last night I fell asleep at about 10-30 in the evening. At 1-20 in the morning I decided I'd like a little milk. Mum gave me a little and I bit her. Mum put me back in my bed and said I wasn't getting any more. I know mum, if I scream loud and long enough I will win so when she put me in bed at 1-25 I stood up and screamed angrily at her. She came over, picked me up, said no and laid me down. Huh? I stood up again and screamed, she laid me down again. Over the next 2 hours and 10 minutes I stood up and screamed at her 45 more times and she laid me down 45 times saying no. I didn't realize mum could be as stubborn as me. A few times she even shouted nasty words at me. Eventually I lost my voice and lay down exhausted. I didn't waken up again till 10-45 in the morning. When I got up I gave mum a big hug just in case she remembered about our fight but it seems she's forgotten about it for now.
I bet I can make her give me milk tonight though.

Prawn soup

We went to uncle Derek's house the other day and he made us soup. In front of daddy and me there was a big ceramic plate, a big spoon, a small plastic bowl and a teaspoon. For some very strange reason daddy thought the big spoon and plate were for him. After I had sorted out that misunderstanding, the meal went swimmingly.

Why the hell have they put a tree in the living room?

Adults just get weirder and weirder... On Saturday they only brought in a tree and it is currently taking up no less than half the living room floor. They keep hanging sparkly things on it and the game seems to be that they put them on, I take them off and leave them in a pile on the floor, and then they put them on again. It is a bit of a strange pastime but it seems to keep them amused so I am willing to keep at it if necessary.

On Friday daddy made me cake, and my grandparents flew over from Denmark and my other grandparents came for coffee too. Everyone bought me nice presents. Apparently it was something called 'my birthday'. Mummy says I am one now.

I found this great new game. I think it is a lot of fun, but mummy shouts at me every time I play it. I don't see why. What harm is there in taking daddy's cds one by one and throwing them down the back of the radiator? I makes such a cool noise. And mummy jumps about making such funny noises when she tries to fish them out while the radiator is on!

Leave me in peace so I can work out your password!

Mum gave me this nice computer. I am sure it is for me because I can reach it on the coffee table. That's why I hit all the keys every time I pass it. Funny though, I don't seem to be able to work out the password.

Self medicating

I don't really understand what all that nonsense was about last week. Daddy and Marcel holding me down, mum squirting the medicine into my mouth, me having to learn how to hold it all in there long enough to spit it over them... I mean, when they just gave me the syringe I was happy to do it all by myself - why didn't they understand that?

Daddy - save me from this strange, hairy weirdo!

Today was a very scary day. We went to mummy and daddy's work which was ok. We danced and ate sweets and crisps. We played with some other babies - so far so good. Then we queued for a few minutes outside a little red house. A strange woman, mummy said she was an elf, asked daddy my name and daddy said Anna. She let daddy go inside. There was a very big, red, hairy person in the corner of the room. I have no idea what daddy was thinking at this point - he only went and handed me over to the scary hairy one. I burst into tears and pleaded with daddy, looking deep into his eyes registering my profound sense of betrayal. He picked me up and we left with a soft bear in a purple jacket. I will not be bought by furry toys. Mummy wasn't much better. She just stood there taking photos. How can you trust parents like that?

I've had sore eyes this week. Mum keeps putting horrible cold eye drops in them to stop them from sticking together. Sore eyes make me sad.

What does passion fruit cheesecake taste like?

I found this cheesecake lying on the coffee table last night. I figured I was supposed to try it. Otherwise, why would they have left it there? I think it was particularly good with the custard I found in a pot at its side.

I'm getting seriously, seriously pissed off with the adults around this house now. In fact the bigger kids aren't much better. The past 3 days while Marcel has held me down, daddy has pulled open my eyelids and mummy has dripped in some nippy, cold liquid. I hate them so I cry and cry. And, as if that isn't bad enough, no sooner do they stop that than mum and dad attack me with a syringe full of yellow liquid saying it'll taste nice. I shake my head vigorously but they completely ignore me and squirt it in every time I cry. I hate them for that too. It isn't fair! I don't understand why they are attacking me this week, when I'm already not feeling very well!

I'm sick

I have really itchy eyes. They are making me feel miserable so all I want to do is suck mummy's milk all day and night and grumble. I hope they get better soon.
Mummy took me to the doctor which wasn't fun because there was so much ice it took us ten minutes to get to the car and another ten to de-ice it, by which time we were ten minutes late. When the doctor looked at me he said I had conjunctivitis and a chest infection. He gave mummy medicine and eye drops. Problem is I hate both so I have decided to refuse them and try to get better without them. For some reason mummy doesn't agree with my stance so has been pinning me down with her knees and forcing things into my eyes and down my throat. I think I hate mummy now.
