Moppet, where's DuDu Bear?
Excited baby runs to the sofa where DuDu Bear is resting his furry butt and points.
Yay! Now tell me, where's Poochie?
Poochie is lifted up by one floppy blue ear and waved about.
Well done, baby! Ok, now where are the masks?
Genius baby turns to the living room wall on which hang our Indonesian tribal masks and points.
Clever girl! Now, Moppet, where's Mama?
Big eyes turn to me with a blank look.
Baby, where's Mama?
Little face scrunches up. What is this 'Mama' thing?
C'mon, sweetie - MAMA, MAMA...WHERE'S MAMA?
Baby has had enough. This game's not fun anymore. Little back is turned and new adventures sought.
Ok, so this episode has been dramatised a bit. But it is the sad truth. Moppet can identify so many things around the house, but ask her where Mama is, and she just doesn't know! :-(
