Older boy got a Batman toy from Santa. He does loves superheroes but most toys are aimed at big kids but this particular range is aimed at toddlers. He was very excited and decided to ask super nerd Daddy to tell him all about it
So every night either me or Daddy will take Older boy to bed (I always take younger boy to bed but sometimes Daddy is at work at bed time so I take both boys) Every night he will get stories and cuddles and then drinf off to sleep
Tonight it was Daddy taking him to bed. He asked
A bit shocked as he's not done this before Daddy asks
Intrigued to see what he's going to say Daddy listens and Older boys continues:
Slightly amused by the come back, Daddy keeps listening:
Wondering if there might be any more Daddy asks:
With that Older boy goes straight to sleep and daddy rushes downstairs to tell me
So blogging about my Sons story telling might become a regular thing. Or this might be his one and only story. either way I'm very proud of him!!
My boys love TV. They have their favourite programs (and secretly I do too). But kids TV does something to adults. It gets really stuck in your head like some weird subliminal message and before you know it, it's coming out in your every day speech....
There's the "Baby Jake"
The "Big Cook Little Cook"
The "I Can Cook"
The "Something Special"
And the "Baby Jake"....again (That program is awful for getting into your head!!)
I say Part 1 because the why thing is new and exciting to him so I'm sure there will be a few more why moment
So, older boy has started asking questions. It's fine when it's a question I can answer. Only now questions are starting to get more difficult. And lucky me...we have started with the dreaded WHY?
So the other morning I was helping the boys with their breakfast and while they were eating the kettle switched off (I always boil the kettle while they eat then the coffee will be a drinkable temperature). Older boy says
I answer, "it's the kettle switching off". Happy in the knowledge I have answered the first question of the day with no brain power needed.
He then proceeds with...
I hope my simple answer will suffice.
So I decide to go into more detail
I'm hoping the shock of the over honest answer will stop the why for a bit!!
