I was a little (read 'very') surprised to see a little white dot on Squiggles lower left jaw a couple of days ago. On closer examination it turned out that Squiggles had a little white tooth in the making. The little one is teething which explains the sad sounds she's been making which I attributed to colic! I called my mom and told her the (good?) news and she refused to believe me - a first time mom can never get things right after all :). When she came to visit, she examined Squiggles mouth only to discover not one but two (yes two) teeth!! My little one is growing so fast.
I decided not to tell DD just then but to wait and surprise him with the news in the evening. So, when I picked him up from work in the evening I asked him to guess what was new with Squiggles. He made several random guesses and kept badgering me to tell him throughout the drive home (there was no way I was going to spill the beans especially since he was getting more pissed off by the minute!). I told him that he should get home and discover the change for himself.
As I parked the car he said, 'Is she teething?'.
How on earth did he guess that I ask you? I wouldn't have guessed in a million years. And the piece de resistance.... "I told you about it 2 days ago but you wouldn't believe me."
What rubbish. It's typical isn't it, you try and create a nice little surprise for Daddy Dearest and not only does he not even pretend to be surprised but claims to have made the discovery several days before. Men.. hmph.
