These last few weeks have been all about sunny days, garden fun and my two playing along with each other more than ever, with no preschool for Boo.
Little Man is now 23 months old, and Boo is 4 years and 10 months. Their relationship is wonderful to watch. Yes, there is the odd scream and squabble, but it tends to be over within seconds, invariably put behind them with a sorry (or ‘warry’ from Little Man) and a cuddle. And off they go again, Boo guiding (read: bossing) Little Man, and Little Man sometimes adoringly following her, sometimes studiously ignoring her, either way, she continues blithely onwards and both are content. There is a lot more imaginary play in their games now, as Little Man grasps the concept well and enjoys it, so there are lots of giggles and it really does keep his attention. And then with the great weather we’ve been having, they’ve been loving being outside, on gorgeous days out..
Or just playing in the back garden..
My kids are so happy running free outside. Give them a huge lawn and they have to run on it. Give them a play area and they’re in their element! And on a warm day, they’re desperate to get out into the garden and play, so we’ve had the tuff spot out, toys on the blanket, trampolining, the sandpit, messy play, bug hunts, and of course, ice lollies a plenty! We’ve still another few weeks before Boo starts school, and we plan to make the most of them. School holidays are all about siblings having fun, I think.
