Big moment in our house, the eldest managed to nail his first arm-pit fart.  I was so proud I thought I might burst.

I remember my first arm-pit fart like it was yesterday and how it catapulted my standing amongst my peer group. He’s been working on it for so long now we wondered if he’d ever get there and then all of a sudden boom.  He’s started on the leg already.  Anyway, Ive texted all the family to tell them the good news and we are going to have a little party tea later on to celebrate.

You know I have spent a lot of time being cynical about life but when precious moments like this happen it makes you realise what all the hard work is about.  A priceless milestone in your childs life where you can just step back and say, “You know what, Ive done alright”
