Mummy Tiernan

Posted on: October 24, 2010

This happened a little while ago, but I didn’t get a chance to post it – it’s been a rather hectic week!

Molly was playing with her dolls, Polly and Baby Jeff. Well actually, Baby Jeff is Tiernan’s – we bought him when we were expecting Molly so that Tiernan could have a baby like Mummy. He wasn’t into it, but now that Molly likes dolls, Tiernan will occasionally claim Baby Jeff from her and take him for a rigorous zoom around the house in the stroller!

Anyway, Molly was playing with Polly and Baby Jeff, which mainly involves putting nappies on them, wrapping them up for bed, putting them to bed and telling everyone to ‘shhhh’, waking them up noisily (she yells “CUP!”, which is ‘wake up’), taking them for walks, feeding them, pushing them on the swing, singing them songs, and asking them if they’re okay (not really sure about that one, but it seems to be important to her!)

Tiernan decided he would join in, and it was lovely to watch the two of them caring for their babies together. Tiernan really got into the role, and spent some time cuddling and rocking Baby Jeff, before reading him a story. I commented that he was being a good Daddy, to which he replied, “I’m not being a Daddy, I’m being a Mummy.” I apologised and amended my statement, and then asked what else Mummies do. His response was, “Mummies put their baby boys to bed and give them a kiss.” He then proceeded to put Baby Jeff to bed. It was very sweet to watch him being so loving, and I thought to myself, “Yep, I taught him that!”
