Lovely lovely weather and out of doors fun!

The first two are from Saturday when we went exploring in the park. As you can see Ben enjoys large sticks and big rocks.
Also here is the lovely picnic (first of the season) that we had today.

A Note On "Sharing"

Okay, let's be honest we all know even adults sometimes have problems sharing. (and we all understand the concept.)
It's much easier for a young child to grasp the idea of taking turns.
So next time your child won't share try saying:
"You've been playing with Red Bear for a long time. it's Jonny's turn to play with Red Bear; let him play with Red Bear for a few minutes and then you can have Red Bear back "
Most of the time if you can convince the child the toy is coming back, they'll give it up. The only problem is you have to make sure that Red Bear actually does come back.
(If you don't all hell will break loose.)

Quote of the day April 18th 2009

"Mummy? Can one chain saw cut through another chainsaw?"

I'll admit I really had to think about this one for a while. I finally came to the conclusion that no it could not. Thoughts?

The crib is finally gone!

Lots of excitement today. Ben has an actual big boy bed (which he is fast asleep in right now as I write this :) It took some putting together, being from Ikea, but that's all part of the joy of getting new furniture right? When you put it together and it doesn't fall apart?

Loves the new bed, posing for pictures? Not so much.

Big boy bike!

From Easter weekend. First time ever on a bike.
