Life in the Mo Lane

"I love you. We be best friends for ever, Mumma." [eyelash flutter, leaning in for a hug]

"Yes, we be that thing you said, MoMo." [heart melt]

Pause  "Good. Best friends like bickies. Bickie please?"

"You planned this, all along, didn't you?" [heart solidify up again, like a bullet hole in The Terminator!]

Bickied up child runs away, giggling like a maniac.

He can be SO sweet. And SO defiant! Holy shit, can it chuck a tantrum?! He threw one so spectacularly theatrical the other day, I could not reprimand him, because I was hiding behind the kitchen bench, laughing too hard!

He's got an independent streak that runs deep and a competitive thread that's just starting to rear it's ugly head. But mostly, he's just a big bag of mush! He still LOVES his dummy "and my two cloffs" (two identical tea-towels that he takes to bed. One for over his giant head, one to hold... how did this start again?!) We're trying to wean the dummy. It's only for bed time now and he's pretty good about that... but every now and then he sneaks into his room, gathers up his contraband and takes it to his little couch in the playroom.  You can hear the 'suck suck suck' from space. :-) Tiny little dork!

Morrison is our Indoor Child. He likes riding his bike and bouncing on the trampoline but prefers playing indoors with his cars, trucks, trains, Octonauts and Play Doh. He does follow Spike outside but is usually back in first. He is his mother's child. 

And as you can see from the above, he likes to be other things! This dragon suit is a firm fave. Ditto the dinosaur one and on occassion, he can be a frightening Somalian Pirate!


Aaargh me hearties, indeed!

It's fun being your Mum, Mo. And I will be your best friend, for ever. So there!

Mo's Ma xxoo

Frustrating that the widescreen vid crops out his whole head. TOO hilarious how the eyepatch covers one eye, and the string obscures the other!

You describe him as a high-maintenance lad, yet you seem to have the time for a lot of fancy video editing... something doesn't add up!

Quinn had a similar outfit that he wore constantly when he was little!
