Sometimes I get the distinct feeling that our attention is something that must be won at all cost. Often when Fifi is getting a cuddle, M’laddo is rolling around on the floor in a paroxysm of woe and doom because his sock has fallen down or something equally pathetic. And because he’s only two and a half, he hasn’t really got the hang of lying or manipulating people yet (he is a boy after all), so if you ask him if he is attention seeking more often than not he’ll say yes.
Of course it doesn’t stop M’laddo jumping into any photo opportunity that presents itself, especially if his Mummy and sister happen to be posing for it. Fifi is well used to having whatever toy she’s playing with wrenched unceremoniously out of her hands but this is really the final straw!
