Is that a snownan?

I love the fact that on hearing a neighbour’s wind chime my son excitedly asks whether it’s a snowman when I said no he then quickly asked whether it was Santa instead.

This happened this afternoon on Easter Sunday no sight of Santa anywhere but to my son he’s the most magical being there is that even at Easter he’s thinking fondly of the old guy in the red suit.

It’s Christmas!

It’s Christmas!

9 months to go until Christmas day however my son is already intersted in what Santa might bring him.

He has so far asked for;

Blue Train (the one from Postman Pat) and a fire engine!

Yesterday morning when I went to wake him, instead of saying good morning, or hi mummy his first question was to ask whether the blue train was downstairs.  After a long discussion with me counting the months on my…

Butter and Jam on Toast

Butter and Jam on Toast

As a parent I think we sometimes forget to celebrate the small things our children can achieve we forget that they’re still small and all things new they have learnt to do are a huge achievement for them (even if it may be something simple).

For my son (who is 5) in the past week has learnt how to spread his butter and jam on his toast of a morning this is a huge achievement for him and he did a…

Ouch - My Head Hurts!

Ouch – My Head Hurts!

Last Friday after finishing work I came home to find my son (who was at his grandparents after school) had bumped the back of his head on the banister of the stairs (he was standing in the hall-way and he’d put his head through – they’re horizonal slats and as he’d pulled his head back out quickly and hit the base of his head just above his neck).

He didn’t cry when it happened and after saying…

That makes me sneeze!

My son often tells me he’s hungry (which for any 5 year old is fantatic as he tells me he wants to grow big and strong) however the conversation is never that straighforward – the conversation usually goes like this;

Joshua: I’m hungry

Mummy: What would…

In Search of “the man”

My sons description of things he can’t find always amazes me, in that I usually know what he’s describing even though to anyone else it sounds like a mystery.  For instance this afternoon I over-heard a conversation between my son and his daddy;

Bestest Friend Ever

My son Joshua told me “You know what Mummy you’re my bestest friend ever” aww sweet except he says this to everyone – throughout the day.  One day he’d managed to say that to me, his Micky Mouse toy, Charlie Cat and then to his Grandad (all before 9am)!
