At the ripe old age of 22 months, Boo Boo has discovered the mobile phone.
When Mel left to go to work in Queensland, she dropped off some old hats, handbags and mobiles for the kids to play with. They have all been used extensively, but none as much as the old white mobile with shiny pink buttons. Boo Boo has appropriated this phone, and makes regular calls to various friends and family members.
She babbles endlessly into the phone, which she holds by one of her ears (although often the wrong way round). I then ask her who she's talking to by listing people's names, and she will shake her head until I come to the right person, and then she giggles and nodds. It's her favorite game of the moment.
