Bonding and that.

September 5, 2006 at 12:03 pm | Posted in family | 5 Comments

I’ve been pretty grumpy recently, in case you hadn’t noticed. You’d notice it alot more on here than you would IRL, because in real life I haven’t been acting any different. This is my place to rant and be a wanker, hence the splutterings from the past while.

Last night, though, I bonded with my boy. It was the first real, intimate, father-son thing to happen between us, and it made me forget, if only for a while, about all the money worries and other stuff that’s going on at the moment.

What happened was, I helped him go from this:

to this:

I was getting him dressed after his bath, and he started to whimper. I tried shushing him, but it turned into a full-blown cry as I slipped him into his tiny pyjamas. Instead of picking him up, I held his arms and gently pressed them to his chest. I started talking that strange language of non-sequitors that you do with babies. I don’t mean goo-goo ga-ga baby-talk, which I cannot stand; it’s highly patronising, and it’s bloody irritating. No, just things like “It’s ok my boy…what’s the matter…your big sister’s getting her bath now…what’s all the fuss about…Daddy’s starving…good boy…Daddy’s seriously horny for Mummy…” and so forth. Soothing stuff.

OK, I didn’t say the horny part.

Anyway, he stopped crying almost immediately, and the whole time I held him, we just looked into each other’s eyes.
