When manflu strikes

It doesn’t take long for male personality traits to form… six weeks in to life and little Boo has the sniffles. A prompt visit to the Dr confirmed a case of Manflu. But I already knew this. It started with the neediness, those big blue eyes looking up at me adoringly, the insistent need for hugs, milk, love and nothing else. The almost ‘sorry for himself’ look everytime I glanced away. It’s amazing how young it starts, but I’d never swap Mr Sniffles, I’m so glad I had a boy – as the woman in the Drs put it: “When a little girl wants to be picked up, it’s to look over your shoulder – while with a boy, it’s because he wants to be cuddled.”
