I don’t think I’ll ever forget the looks of confusion, fascination &, yes, horror on Jallie’s* faces when I took off my glasses & put them on their Mummy.
“But – but… he’s taken off a bit of HIS FACE!!! AND PUT IT ON MUMMY!! MUMMY’S GOT SOME OF DADDY’S FACE ON HER!!?!!!” (That is how they talk; I’ve become fluent in ‘Baby’).
Looking rapidly from one to the other, they just couldn’t work it out.
It was hilarious!
I’m not sure what they make of them now; maybe it’s “Daddy’s face but not Daddy’s face”. I do know that every time they come within range the first thing they do is try to grab them: “I got a bit of Daddy’s face!”. I wouldn’t mind but it means I can’t read anything – including blogs & we can’t have that can we?! - & getting their grubby fingerprints &, yes, slobber off them afterwards is a bit of a hassle.
Whatever, Jake seems fairly pleased with himself for getting his new Crown: a piece of Daddy’s face!
