I just settled DD down in her cot. She was still fussing a bit, but would go to sleep. Got to my room and realised I'd left my phone on a folded blanket in the middle of her room. Operation 'Retrieve Communications Device' began.

First I silently crawled into the room behind the solid headboard of the cot and reached in with a coat hanger to slide two board books out of the way. Then I began to inch the blanket towards me with the end of the coat hanger. It's a quilted blanket, so no holes to stick the end of the hanger into for leverage. Once it was close enough I reached forward and pulled it towards me just enough to reach my prize phone. Then I reversed out of the room on my tummy and stood up before creeping back along the corridor to my room. All without her noticing.

I have to say that I'm feeling more than a little pleased with myself grin

Stealth boast? :-D

There are several things that happen to women when they become mothers. One is the ability to know whether it is your child crying in a room of 50 toddlers. Another is to be able to tell straight away whether it is your child that has filled their nappy in a room of 50 toddlers.

The best one is the fact that the second they exit the birth canal, you become a fucking Ninja! After 6 kids I swear that I could get to the PM during PMQs, write "I am a total cunt" on his forehead and be back at home with a glass of wine before anyone noticed grin

Bogey I'm liking your style. Could you do Osborne the week after, just to prove that they never learn from their mistakes? grin

Andrewofgg Tue 05-Apr-16 10:53:38

I really should keep my mouth shut shouldnt I?!

And if the phone rings then you suddenly discover a previously unknown talent for gymnastics as you grab the phone and do one of those jumping roll things, back flip down the stairs whilst simultaneously answering the phone and chatting to your mother! grin

That's why I had to grab it! I knew I hadn't put it on silent, Thabkfully it's pretty much only ever DP that phones me.
