What can I tell you? Another slow day at the NICU.
Millie a bit unsettled again yesterday, lots of waving of tiny fists and feet about the incubator; and more angry faces than we normally see. Fortunately we have a secret weapon – the Scooby Doo theme! Millie always quietens down when I sing her that – only the ‘Scooby-dooby doo, where are you? We got some work to do now…‘ bits – we don’t bother with the faster middle bit, you know – ‘You know we got a mystery to solve, so Scooby Doo be ready for your act…‘
etc. That bit’s a little too fast for a lullaby. The rest of it works really well sung quietly and in more of a ballad style though. 🙂
Hopefully she’ll get a bit more adventurous with her music taste, like her dad, maybe into get into a bit of my two New Favourite Bands – Acid House Kings and Treva Whateva (not to be confused with her Uncle Trevor, obviously). And maybe even Ambulance Ltd, currently bubbling along nicely on my mp3 player…
The Lovely Melanie refuses to sing for Millie, but I actually quite enjoy it, especially since it works so well to calm her down.
And it is her “birthday” today, too – six weeks old. I even skipped a works’ party yesterday, with free food and champagne, to come down and see my girl. Now that’s what I call dedication!
And not only do we have our phone working at home again, so if you’ve phoned us recently and we haven’t bothered to pick up the call, or get back to you, it’s because the phone was knackered, not because we hate you. Probably.
And we’ve got the broadband working again – and it’s 2Mb! Now, that’s livin’ alright!
