I am So THAT’s my Baby Mum!

​Every day, I get to know my minions better.
I am waiting patiently to understand them.  I may wait on by the look of things.
Mini-Me ADORED these books πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ when she was younger.  We have most of them, still perfect condition, despite having been read 12 times a day for about 18 months.


Today, I learned something about her…

She is a gentle little lady, who despite having the temper of her mother and the patience of…well, her mother, is quite the delicate flower who looks after her stuff quite well.  
Especially books.
How did I learn this? 

WELL, I found this book today and decided to introduce Princess to our tradition.

And within 5 minutes, the pristine and perfect book looked like THIS. πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡


Mini-Me used to turn the pages gently and point sweetly at the “wee mouse” and cheep at the “wee birdies”.  She’d tentatively touch the sensory sections and her mind would flourish poetically and grow beautifully before my very eyes… πŸ’–πŸ’–
Princess ripped the fecking book in bits… like the Hulk that she is…and banged it REPEATEDLY off the floor until she managed to bust the binding.  

5 minutes.

Rambo.
However, never one to dwell on the negative I have decided to perceive her reaction that she TOO was developing her sensory skills.  Her taste for reading can not be disputed either as she has tried many times to EAT the fecking book.  Not only do these books nourish the mind, they are great teethers too apparently.
And so there you go.  These little books do not ONLY educate and encourage and stimulate the minds of our minions, they can also teach Mammies the differences in the personalities of her two little darlings. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  1. I’ve had the same learning curve! My son now 8 had a collection of these books too, all well kept but used daily. I kept them knowing I would one day hopefully have another child and along came my daughter now age 2. I found the books and at first she was gentle and turning the pages but oh my turned into a book guzzling child at about 9 months where I couldn’t have any books around her unless they were at a distance and indestructible (I found giving her a book more intended for the bath was best or a board book with no sensory bits). She now loves books and thankfully eating them has become a distant memory 😊
