we’ve had another growth spurt – she can open the doors now. Argh. (and we’re getting well into 18 month bottoms, though still have skinny tops)

Add to that she’ll constantly ask for Wiggles or Bananas in Pyjamas now – we’ve become the kind of parents I didn’t want us to – the TV is a babysitter. She wants to watch it. Argh. So I’m going to limit the time we spend watching tv, or make sure it’s programmes like Gigglebiz/Something Special and CBeebies from 5.30 when I’m cooking tea.

Such is her Wiggles obsession, that I’m thankful they seem to sponsor and have their names on everything in Australia – we’ve found that when H gets all worked up, you can’t beat handing her a tube of toothpaste with The Wiggles pictures endorsing it. “Weeegul” she’ll happily say, all calm again. Got to be better than the tv, right? Why didn’t we bring back more toothpaste…
