Ode to my Tiny Taskmasters…

Dear Offspring. I love you. Of that there’s no doubt. But you’ve learned a new skill and it’s making me shout. Along with your new-found vocabulary, You’ve developed a yearning to need stuff – from me! I’ve always been there to attend to your needs, Through all of the teething and endless night feeds.
