armyofsnails: (Simpsons)
At what age does a sense of boredom develop in a new human? - is the burning question on everyone's lips, I'm sure. Well, turns out, it's six weeks - before the human is able to hold their head up, focus their eyes on anything, or even realise that you, their parent, actually exist.

My offspring has added a particular type of sound to his repertoire to announce that he is bored, and the only thing that seems to fix it is frenetic entertainment involving whirling him around the room, rocking him and/or moving his arms and legs (preferably all the arms and the legs at once). The bored cry then disappears and is replaced by a content half-smile or a wide-eyed curious stare. As soon as the entertainment stops, the cry returns. This is in addition to his previously developed trick of screaming his little lungs out unless he is held by someone - this applies at all times of day and night, and makes doing anything other than holding him extremely difficult (like going to the toilet, for example).

One of the perks of this job is the fact that by carrying him around on me all day long I'm getting a good full body workout...
