Redster: Five any day now
Cutester: 20 months

What’s driving me to blog now – and it takes being driven, believe me – is purely not wanting to forget all this stuff that gets forgotten in a matter of months if you don’t write it down.

Here’s a moment that sums up the Cutester’s attitude and I have therefore selected it for posterity:

Babymother: Sit down. You can’t stand up in your highchair or you’ll fall and hit your head.
Cutester – stays standing, looks straight at me, raises one eyebrow and breaks wind.
