The growing pains of a teenage boy

Chapter 36 The baby

   It was amazing how after all the huffing and puffing, it was over and a baby girl was born.  At first it was nice to be the proud father. This soon wore off. I don’t know who said it, but bringing a child into one’s life is like leaving the front door open and letting a complete stranger enter your house.

   Right from the beginning it was the crying that I found most disturbing. It was either to change a nappy or demand food.                          


   The other problem I had was when asleep, although looking like Sam with her cute nose and other features, Alice’s skin colouring was all wrong. It was several shades darker than either of us.


   Alice is driving me crazy, she’s not only crying but screaming blue murder. Thankfully, Uncle Alan came to the rescue. He and his partner Brian have sort of adopted Alice and taken it upon themselves to look after her. It sounds funny but she would instantly stop screaming when either of them picked her up. Whereas with yours truly, she wouldn’t stop however much I tried.


   As the weeks go by Alice has started to become aware of her surroundings. I would be awoken by the sound of her playing with the bell on the mobile attached to her cot.
