Unknown Olympic Events Celebration [20120806|09:37]

[the weather today is |silly]

The morning's first celebration: NASA wins gold in the 567,000,000 Kilometre event! Curiosity has landed softly on Mars. SkyCrane worked. Hurrah for mad engineering solutions!

The morning's second celebration: Telstar wins gold in the Longcat Napping event! Here he is in the middle of his epic 14-hour stint on the duvet. What a champion.



ETA: Almost forgot one! But it's kinda gross so I'll put it under a cut. Yesterday, a friend of ours came over with her six-week-old baby. Auntie Nanila had a little cuddle with the baby after she'd fed. Baby was very happy with Auntie Nanila. So happy she got the hiccups, then squinched up her face and did (and I quote her mummy), "the most enormous poo she's ever done". Which broke the bounds of her nappy and got on Auntie Nanila's shirt and trousers. So, Olympic gold for the very obscure "Share Your Effluvia with Auntie Nanila" event goes to Miss Annabel!

Ah yes, the nappy volcano. You will become quite familiar with those over the next couple of years.

Yes, I've heard. I've been warned that when pooping starts, you should wait a bit to be certain it's finished before you start with the nappy change.

This morning he dropped a live mouse on the duvet to wake me up. It worked.

I think it's safe to say he's settled in.

At least 6-week old babies aren't eating chili cheese fries and steak and kidney pies yet! (although sometimes the smell does make one wonder.)

It has been so hot here, Dante has taken to laying sprawled out on the floor, rather than on the bed.

Supposedly when you breastfeed it doesn't smell quite so much. It's when they start eating solids that it gets epic.

Poor Dante! He should come visit here - it's cool and rainy.

Are you following MarsCuroisity (deliberate misspelling) on Twitter? It says things like:

HEY, NASA! I ANALYSED THAT ROCK, JUST LIKE YOU ASKED ME TO. IT'S DEFINITELY A FUCKING ROCK. HOPE THAT $2.5 BILLION WAS WORTH IT.

:D

Yes, she probably thought she was doing me a favour.

Longcat was not so cute when he brought in the mouse and then lost it under the wardrobe until I fished it out for him. Yargh. >.<

A skill I imagine your parents hoped you passed along to your offspring, too. ;D

It's all fun and games until someone brings poop into it.
