Oscar’s questioning!

July 30th, 2017

Oscar has had some fab questions these past few months. I really enjoy seeing the children learning and thinking about things. Here are a few…

What if there wasn’t any colour? Can animals poo when they want? What are the clouds made of? Does it hurt when you die?

And here’s Oscar as a ballerina.

Joshua’s love of clothes

July 30th, 2017

Joshua has just turned three and he is one cool kid- he seems to love clothes, hehe. A little bit of Mummy in there! I recently went to pick up a clothes order with some bits for the boys and Oscar’s just like ‘yeh, thanks’ looking at them briefly. Joshua is trying each bit on, ‘oh nice.’ Nannan also bought the big boys some new clothes for our holiday (thanks Nannan!) and Joshua loved trying each one on 😊 Here he is with a new coat and swimming trunks. I may potentially have a shopping partner! X

Thinking

June 9th, 2017

Just a tidbit from our conversation tonight. Oscar says he thinks in

pictures and video, not words. Personally, I think in words mostly.

Times tables with the baby

May 30th, 2017

Oscar is singing songs to the baby. He was making up songs featuring lots of numbers, and then he is literally singing the 2 times table. I didn’t realise he knew it!

2 fives are 10
2 threes are 6
2 nines are … a long number
2 ones are 2
2 twos are 4

Poo 2!

Talking of poo, my wonderful friend designed this magnificent poster!

The fascination with poo!

January 27th, 2017

Joshua loves toilet humour at the moment.. and this is not a totally new thing, he’s enjoyed laughing about poo for a couple of months now.

In the mornings he likes to have his poo-ridge for breakfast. Oscar is like ‘eurgh, no it’s not poo-ridge, it’s porridge!’ in disgust.

Every now and then he just says that his food is poo.. oh that chocolate sandwich, ‘that’s not chocolate it’s poo;’ it tastes like poo ‘I like poo’ he says. Often he then does say, ‘oh no, I don’t like poo, you can’t eat poo.’ Which we all agree with.

Sometimes we play a game where we go to the shops and mummy buys some poo but I don’t realise until it’s in my hand, or I smell it and then it’s hilarious! Sometimes I give him poo at the shop and sometimes I throw it at him- haha!

And to conclude, this fascination may have come from mummy, shouting ‘watch out for the poo!’ every time we walk to the car 😒 yuk!

Sibling love ❤️

January 18th, 2017

One of my favourite things about being a mummy is watching my children grow and learning about them. Oscar had his first opticians appointment this week. He’s seen me go a few times and was happy to go. When we got there he seemed excited and so grown up; he followed the instructions well and we kept on having little reassuring smiles at each other. When the test was over and the optician was writing up the results Joshua went over to him, gave him a stroke on his leg and asked him if he was alright or said well done. It was so lovely and melts my heart. I’m super proud of them both and the people that they are xxx

Logical leaps

August 12th, 2016

Tonight, Oscar was a it worried about robbers coming in the night to take his toys. We had a chat about it, including police, and jobs and how robbers rob because they can’t get a job… It all culminated in this set of logical leaps by Oscar.

“I want to be a policeman when I’m big, to tell the robbers what to do. They rob because they can’t get a job. Maybe I can tell them what job to get. Oh, except I don’t know much about that… But they could be a policeman! … No. That won’t work. If they’re all police, then there’ll be no robbers. An then what will the police do?”

“Oh, what do the police do when there’s no robbers?”

“I don’t know. We haven’t got to that level yet, have we, Daddy”

“Hmm. Maybe you can think about it a bit more. But now it’s time to go to sleep!”
