    • My stomach has always had the remarkable ability to made itself heard and the worst moments. In university it used to growl all through the 8am lecture much to the amusement of all around me.

  1. Goodness, Grandmama is neglecting her own needs in order to look after the baby. Don’t forget, you need to eat yourself. Surely you can rock the baby on one arm while fixing yourself a sandwich with the other.

    (I got rather good at the skill myself, though it’s not a good idea to handle a knife while juggling a baby. Peanut butter sandwiches and cheese sliced with a wire cheese cutter became my staples when my children were small. :D)
