Mummalove-52-45-6nicholas: We were enjoying a morning at home after a busy week and I pulled out our box of ‘Little People’ and their associated transport options for you to play with. As it was a warm day, we decided to put some water in the crate so the Little People could go for a swim, but it wasn’t long before you stripped off and decided to join them in the “pool”. (And who needs an expensive pool when you’re happy with a crate, hey? ;)) 

Mummalove-52-45-1 Mummalove-52-45-2charlie: You’ve always loved creating stories and getting us to dictate them for you, so I have been looking forward to when you were ready to write your own. Over the weekend, you’ve been very busy writing and illustrating (or being the “ilschraitu”) of a 35 page “chapter book” of your very own, complete with monsters and haunted houses and dialogue between your two characters, Fred and Charlie. Some parts are really clear and others even you can’t remember what you wrote, but either way it warms my heart to see you creating.
