If anyone grabs keys, purse, wallet or bag Miss2 is on the doorstep looking for a ride. She knows the signs.

It shouldn't really have surprised us then when we walked into the bedroom this afternoon to find she's all over the big baby bag packed and sitting ready at the base of our bed. And by all over it I mean the was just about all in it.

Miss2 is clearly aware someone is going somewhere and determined to NOT be left behind.

We've never to worry about sibling rivalry here in the Devereaux household, but I'm concerned this may be changing.

In the past we've always ensured the younger older children (that make sense?) get their own baby doll when the new baby is born, so they can look after it at the same time. It's always worked a treat.

But Miss2 isn't as easily distracted as her older siblings have been. She's way too switched on for my liking.

Hopefully she'll take to the new bub as well as all the rest have. I guess we'll know in a couple of weeks :)

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
