Porridge for breakfast, naming of names and another step forward.

1. The blop-plop-plop of porridge bubbling. Alec is having a hungry day, and so I give him an advance on the raisins he will have to sprinkle on top.

2. Alec adds another name to his list: Godfather Timothy is 'Tibby', joining Larlie (Godmother Charlie) and Yoghurt (Uncle Robert).

3. I've made leap forward in my parenting skills. I now recognise as tiredness that tearful string of random, contradictory requests. I reply firmly to each: "When we get home, it's nappy change, bub-bub and sleep."


  1. I love the idea of big tough climbing-muscle Robert being yoghurt, I think he'll be stuck with that for a while. What flavour I wonder? Maybe a good spicy raita rather than sweet fruity, or banana lassi. (Has Alec tried this?)

  2. I haven't offered him a lassi yet -- but he does like raisins. They are like a currency round here.
