“I see, but what about your father doesn’t he call in on a Sunday?’

“Normally, but I will ring and tell him not to bother as we are going out; we won’t be lying because tomorrow we are taking young Bobby out in the pram. Aren’t we little one we are going to take you out for some fresh air? There’ll be no lazing around now we have Bobby; I want him to take in all the sights and sounds like my father did with me so that he never gets bored. It will also help him to sleep better too. Bobby will have a regular sleep time. Once he learns his bedtime and the room where he sleeps; he should just go off and we won’t have to worry about him.’

“You make it sound so simple.’

“It is.’ babies need lots love and affection but also need to learn their place.’

When Laura arrived home she quickly handed Bobby to Albert then ran down the path and opened the door and Albert followed.’

“Let’s hope nobody seen us or they will come knocking and we won’t get rid of them.

Laura brought out the baby changing mat and told Albert to get some boiling water then to add cold until it was just tepid so she could change Bobby.

There was no need for the heating to be on as it was warm enough inside the house. Lying the mat down onto the sofa she lay Bobby down then began to undress him. “Can you fetch Bobby some clean clothes out of his chest of drawers please.’ And hurry up with the bowl of water and make sure that it’s not too hot.’

Albert brought in the bowl of water first then looked down on Bobby as he lay naked on the mat playing with his own foot. When Laura bent down over Bobby to wash him he unceremoniously urinated. It went all over Laura and she used the flannel to cover him until he stopped.’

Albert burst out laughing and Bobby had a big smile on his face. Laura was not amused as she used some tissue to wipe her face.’

“You little tinker said Laura eventually and tickled her new son’s belly.’ He giggled out loud as Albert went to change the water and to get Bobby’s clean clothes.

He was quickly changed and Laura surprized herself at how fast she had learned to put on a disposable nappy.’

“Can you put that dirty nappy into a separate bin bag Albert and tie it up or it will stink the house out.’

Albert picked up the offending nappy and took it into the kitchen. Going into the draw he found a roll of plastic bags and placed the nappy inside then tied it up. He left the roll handy in case it should be needed again. Then he placed that small plastic bag into a big one then tied that as well.

He found another bin that they had bought for that purpose and placed the bag inside.

Once Bobby was changed into a clean romper suit she placed him on the thick Shag pile carpet. Albert gave him a rattle with a ring on the end which went straight into his mouth.’

“Do you think he is hungry asked Albert?’

“No,’ didn’t you read the book.’

“Yes, but are there any hard and fast rules about feeding him?’
