New Year, New… Toddler?
2018 started with a bang! Diego pulled a Christmas cracker and landed on his bottom in front of everyone. To his delight he won the toy, to my delight I got the whole thing on record. My first New Year’s resolution was to send the clip to anyone that would watch it. He’d do the same to me.
There are things that I love about a new year, as well as things I hate. I don’t like knowing that another year has gone and before I know it Diego will be starting school – all grown up. On the other hand I do like setting new targets for myself, I always seem to start the month with hundreds and end the month with just a few…
As well as many professional targets I had to make a few personal ones this year. One includes teaching Diego that he can’t drop his trousers in the middle of the shop if he needs the toilet. During the Christmas Eve last minute food shop he did just that. Instead of his usual style of screeching the place down to make himself heard, he opted for a much more effective method. To my horror it has continued into the New Year. On his way through the door to playgroup of all places! The trousers came down, the kids gawped, the parents gawped… All whilst I attempted to spontaneously combust. Still haven’t mastered that one.
I have a good feeling about this year. To begin with Diego is already three; that surely can’t be worse than the terrible twos. He’s a little human being with a huge personality, which admittedly sometimes shows traits of Dr Jekyll as well as Mr Hyde, but he’s absolutely fantastic and I’d be nothing without him.
