I can't believe I forgot to tell you all about two of the things that have topped the charts of comedy Alfie moments:

During the last few weeks of my pregnancy, Keith and I got addicted to a Facebook game called Fish Wrangler.

It's possibly one of the easiest games to play since coins were given two sides, but the real pull with this game is the long and very amusing gallery of fish that are available to be caught. One of them is the tricky little Mime Fish who swims along pulling a face something like this:

From as soon as he was aware he had a mouth to purse, Alfie has pulled a face that is shocking in its similarity: Frankly, if I didn't know better, I would have said Alfie had been playing Fish Wrangler himself. What do we reckon? Seperated at birth?

The other thing I can't believe I forgot to mention was one of those occasions when you laugh so hard, tears roll down your face and no sound comes out any more. I'm not entirely sure whether there was an element of hysteria being that it happened about 3 days after we left hospital and let's face it, hormones are a bitch, but it's one of the things I want to read back and laugh about in years to come.

We had the radio on and for some reason known only to them, they saw fit to play BOOM Shakka Lakka.

For those too young to know of this song, count yourself lucky, it was a hideous tune that had middle class white folk trying to bump and grind with disastrous results.

For those too old to have been touched by the desire to bogle, this was the sort of song that had your daughter's fella turned up with it on his car stereo, you would have shot him on sight, just to be on the safe side.

Anyway, a few days into being parents and on comes this blast from our past. Keith, quick as a flash jumps to his feet with mini baby Batsford and proceeds not only to sing the whole song word perfect, but also dance the whole thing with Alfie.

Never, even if I live to be a hundred, will I forget the sight of my husband and new born baby winding their bodies and wiggling their be-lleeees around our lounge.

If you're wondering what Alfie's response was to the whole episode - see above.
