Baby Girl has just entered Leap 4 of the Wonder Weeks, in which she puts all her skills from Leaps 1-3 together & becomes a much more interactive little soul. It’s also 35 days of a grumpy little baby. God help us.
I was reading the new abilities she’s mastering to her dad & he asked why this would make her grumpy. ‘Because she might be a bit overwhelmed by her new skills,’ I replied.
‘Like X-Men.’ He said. Completely straight faced.
And so it’s dawned on me. This is the level I need to discuss all things baby on & I’ll have his full attention. So, Baby Girl is now the latest member of the X-Men crew.
We’ll call her Scream.
Mutant ability: ear piercing cry that shatters glass & bursts mere mortals’ ear drums & stops all living creatures in their tracks.
NB: Baby Girl’s dad has requested I note he’s not an absolute nerd. He’s not even really into comics. Just films. And X-box.
