My little baby daughter is a Master of Disguise.
Barely one month old, she hasn’t yet mastered holding her head up, going to sleep in her pram or doing things with her hands (other than “hit self on head repeatedly and unexpectedly”) but when it comes to looking like somebody else she’s the tops.
Look at her from straight on, about a metre away, in front of a light-coloured background and she looks just like herself. But let a parent’s hand be helping her to hold her head up from behind and …ta-daa! Completely unreconisable!
Or, then again, let her be sitting on Mum or Dad’s lap … she’s a whole different baby. In fact, I frequently need to verbally confirm with my husband that the child sitting on his knee is in fact our child, just in case she has sneakily swapped places with another infant while my back was turned.
Obviously when her eyes are closed she is absolutely nothing like her normal self.
But on the plus side, I need not fear her permanently disguising herself, since I am assured that when she is five years old, she (while sitting face on, eyes open, in front of a light-coloured background) will look just like she does today.
How do I know this? The passports office told me so.
