Back to the maternal health care nurse who yet again failed to recognise that Thieu and I have no idea what we are doing, parenting-wise, and allowed us to take Whiffles home again. In fact, Maddy appears to be thriving despite the odds - her svelte 6lb 13 oz has bloomed into 9lb 6 in a month which is very impressive. I glowed with pride. "I feel like we've just one a prize in a marrow-growing competition" I murmured to Thieu.
Unfortunately Maddles failed to be impressed by the nurse's black and white images, being far too interested in the venetian blind. But that will happen soon, the nurse assured us.
