SELECTIVE MEMORY LOSS
Léon learned to crawl properly in a park in Edinburgh on 5 August after a month of groaning and creeping backwards and standing on hands and feet looking like a crab. Now I have 2 other kids, so how come I had managed to completely forget the utter chaos that ensues in the first weeks after they learn to crawl? He zooms round the house like a mini-tornado emptying every box, cupboard in his path and knocking over everything that is neatly stacked. As I run around trying to keep up, I spare a thought for these crazy 60-something IVF mums - they must be insane - or they don't know what is awaiting them in a few months time.
