The siblings have been very close recently. Even more so than normal, I think.
The Christmas break saw Little Man and Boo having lots of fun together. I think if I were to choose one word to sum up the past few weeks it would have to be ‘play’. They’ve played games, played in the garden, played in imaginary worlds, played with new toys, it’s all been wonderful. Little Man’s done very well as he’s got a house full of his own new toys as well as Boo’s whilst she’s busy at school again – he flits from one thing to another excitedly!
This month has also seen Little Man start at nursery. He has been decidedly reluctant to attend, though fortunately settles down OK once he is there, so I’m told. It’s been the pull of his big sister being somewhere in the same building that calms him, the knowledge that they’re both having the same school dinner in the same hall, and the occasional stroll up the corridor with his key-worker to mosey on by Boo’s classroom. Boo, in turn, is telling him how brilliant it is there, how much fun he’ll have and the friends he’ll make. Bless her for helping, it is still early days.
So here are a few snaps of them this month…
Ask them to lie next to each other so that I can take some photos, and this is what you get!
My very own Princess Anna and Captain America, AKA Boo and Little Man at 6 years 3 months and 3 years 4 months respectively. Love them to bits.
