It’s a whole new world….of nursery rhymes

como operar con opciones binarias It is Week 9 in the Rattle timeline of life. As a recap she has had an exciting period in her life already with a trip to Scotland in Week 5 and celebration of the Hindu festival of Diwali in Week 7. These landmark events have been interspersed with poos, pees, feeds, sleeps and now dribbles & fist gnawing have started.

No heckling…quite a lot of gurgling though

option online binär We have started doing more with Rattle, now she is more alert and can see past the end of her own fist (although I am not convinced she realises that it is her own fist or that she has control over it). The big activity of the week was a standup comedy show at one of the local pubs in Nappy Valley. I have always thought for anyone to do standup comedy takes some guts. To perform in front of a bunch of caffeine deprived, alcohol free new mums on a Wednesday afternoon takes something else altogether. Cocaine most likely. I had minimal expectations in all honesty and thought it a reasonable excuse to have a few pints over lunch with some entertainment happening in the background. My one word review of the show would be “Mixed”. Of the two main acts, one was really good and the other didn’t really hit the right note. Either the fact she looked like she had come straight from an east London coffee shop or her opening line was, “Well, I don’t have a kid” didn’t exactly set the right tone. It was an uphill car crash from there. The other comedienne was very funny. I hadn’t appreciated that parenting would bring with it a series of things that only you find funny. There was a very good joke about how setting a baby down to sleep takes steady hands, body, lower centre of gravity and balance and the only time we would have done this before kids is putting a full ice cube tray back into the freezer.

go site Over the last week we have instigated a morning and bedtime routine. Rattle has not been great at sleeping during the day in the house, so we regularly have to bust her out for walks in the pram. Morning time now consists of attempting to get her to sleep until about 7.30am and if she is not interested then Daddy takes her for some playtime. Her playmat plays Twinkle Twinkle little star, which she has definitely heard over 10,000 times in the last week alone. Why would they only put one song on it which lasts for all of 20s before you have to restart it? I have heard it so many times now I am pretty sure if I heard it out and about it would give me the Pavlov dog reaction and I’d start pulling silly faces and speaking in ‘baby-voice’ immediately. The other morning routine is for Rattle to sit in her rocker and listen to the Nursery Rhyme Collection via our Amazon Echo (one word review: Gimmick). Aside from the famous nursery rhymes – Baa Baa Black Sheep (is this even still politically correct?), the aforementioned Twinkle and the Trio of Blind Mice – I was not up to speed on my nursery rhymes, so thought this a good idea to get both of us familiar with them. Of all the nursery rhymes the one I found most interesting (infuriating) is one called “There’s a hole in my bucket”. If ever there was an example of a idiot of a man:

Now there are several problems with this. Firstly when I heard it I thought that this is the most monotonous, long-winded and ultimately pointless nursery rhyme as it doesn’t actually have an outcome. In Baa Baa Black Sheep people get wool and in Humpty Dumpty the egg gets put back together again. Mostly happy endings. With Liza and Henry nothing actually happens. Upon some investigation I have found this to have German origins. Knowing this and reading it a second time I was impressed with the efficiency of the rhyme being cyclic, the very straight German responses from Liza and her not rising to the bait of Henry’s stupidity. Further research lists the last English major recording to have been in 1960.  This does feel somewhat outdated. I have taken the liberty of refreshing it for the 21st century:

There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
