Oh the Humiliation....

My twins are about 22 months old now and starting to speak. The Mini Duchess is saying 'daddy!' a lot, which warms the cockles of the old Dux's heart. However, she has also started 'identifying' me in all sorts of unlikely places. So far, she has pointed out a photo of Adam Spencer as me (which might mean something to you if you live in Sydney) and some random bloke in the park. The common feature seems to be baldness. This was brought home to me with crushing humiliation when she squealed excitedly, yelled 'daddy!' and pointed at a picture of Humpty Dumpty.

I'll get my coat....

  2. I agree, the curshing humiliation gets more crushing as they get older. Now my 14 yr old daughter for example...

  3. Surely she was making the connection to "all the king's horses and all the king's men"?
