So here are my three gifts in Christmas week, my Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Three things which I have learned since becoming a mother, and which have featured with varying degrees of drama in my life this week:
- Never wear a long dangly scarf or beads while supervising a potty situation.
- 'Messy play' is a great idea, in theory.
- Sick over one shoulder is perfectly acceptable; over two, suggests carelessness.
Number one speaks for itself, really. In number two, whilst my back was turned red paint became lipstick and an ugly scene ensued. Number three was pointed out whilst I was at a Christmas party. Nice.
