Every Aussie kid grows up on this stuff !!

The Gumnut Kid has officially passed her Aussie initiation by successfully mutilating a piece of Vegemite toast. This is something every Australian baby must go through at some point in the first twelve months of their lives. How else do you think we get people to actually enjoy the taste ?! The only way is to shove it down their throats from day one so they assume salty black gunk on toast is a delicacy.
She had her 8 month ‘birthday’ last week and its marked some big developments in her little world. Which also mean there have been some developments in mine. Like housework. I’ve been forced to vacuum more than once a week since the Gumnut has discovered how to get from one end of the house to another using a series of moves that make her look a bit like she’s in boot-camp. She cant crawl so she combines rolling and commando crawling along with what I like to call the bum shuffle where she lies on her back and somehow pushes herself across the room. While she is on her journey from one end of the lounge room to the other , she picks up anything she passes off the floor and puts it in her mouth . So , even though I have never been anal about cleaning , I have developed a slight obsession with mopping and vacuuming that would make my mother very proud.
