nicholas: I watched you survey the slide and think about climbing up the slide to the top. You climbed onto the base of the slide and attempted a few steps, then realised it was actually pretty slippery. But, not to be defeated, you grabbed hold of the sides and started again, carefully and deliberately working your way towards the top. As you moved further and further away from me on this rather tall slide, I started surveying how I would help you if you were in distress. But, I needn’t have worried. You made it and were very impressed with your own achievement (I was impressed too!), then you turned around, said “ready, set, go!” and slid back down again. You impress me pretty regularly.
charlie: I’m at a loss to know how to help you and Sam get along at the moment. It is very tumultuous whenever you’re in the same vicinity and it’s pretty exhausting for your mumma to be constantly listening to arguments. On the upside, the new bedroom formations (Sam has his own space, and you and Nicholas are now sharing) seem to be working really well. Bedtime has been far more pleasant lately and Nicholas, who has always been great at going to bed, still seems to settle nicely knowing that his big brother is nearby.
