Wind up Robot

I love the retro wind up robot we got at the science museum today.

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!”

Russell’s April 2016

April 29th, 2016

I haven’t written a blog/posted photos in quite a while so thought I’d do a little overview…

April already wow wee .. Just trying to organise my 30th birthday party and starting to become a bit panicked because we’re heading towards May! We’ve had plenty of scarlet fever, coughs, colds and chicken pox so far this year and our biggest decision/prayer point at the moment is whether to home school Oscar for a couple of years!? To be decided…

Oscar’s adventures recently

  • still loving climbing and gymnastic activities.
  • improving lots on his computer games and iPad (although that’s limited by mummy to an hour a day unless we’re on a long car journey/need it as our back up.)
  • getting changed by himself and often getting ready by the door before Mummy and Daddy!
  • chatting lots and asking lots of why questions-We both love seeing how he is learning and working things out.

Joshua’s adventures recently

  • becoming cheeky and funny. He’s understanding different social clues, e.g. That if he does something funny, we laugh and he repeats.
  • loves climbing, running and playing with balls still.
  • starting to become independent with his play i.e having his own stories and what seems like more purpose to his actions (although children have purpose from babies.)
  • putting 2/3 words together to make a sentence and asking ‘what’s that?!’ lots.

Disneyland 2015

November 17th, 2015

We all went to Disneyland Paris for my birthday. Nan-Nan and Aunty Sarah joined us, and Oscar especially loved playing lego with Nan-Nan!

We got on lots of rides, and everyone did a great job of queuing.

We had an extra special breakfast, with Mickey Mouse, Tigger, and friends dropping in to say “Hi”, and play with Oscar’s toys. Read the rest of this entry »

Fish food!

November 17th, 2015

This is Joshua’s favourite game at the moment: he goes in the cupboard to get the fish food to feed the fish, but if it’s not time to feed them yet, then instead he takes the food out and puts it back in to the box. Repeat.

He smells like fish 🐟🐠

Oscar’s boat!

August 6th, 2015

Oscar is using the wash basket as a boat-he’s chosen an oar to help him after saying that he needed a stick once he was sat in it. Oscar tried it on the grass to see if it would move, it didn’t and so he decided- ‘It didn’t work, it can only be pretend.’
