Last week I got to spend a bit of time one-on-one with my firstborn. I honestly can’t remember the last time he and I did something fun together just the two of us so I was really excited to have a few hours with him. We got on the train and within 9 seconds all the snacks had been consumed and he cheerfully told me “It’s OK, we’ll find a Starbucks when we get there!”. That’s my boy! He also proved once again that he’s already cleverer than me when he pointed out Wembley Stadium and I said in front of a packed carriage that it wasn’t and then had to quickly backtrack…
I did know what this place was though.
I just love that you can rent a deckchair in the park!
We were invited along to an event for Skylanders. There’s a new game coming out next month and as an authority on all things Skylander, obviously we went along and I embarrassed myself yet again by pretending I knew anything about it. I’m seriously such a mum, they all look the same to me (saying this usually leads to eyerolling because OF COURSE they are all different!) He absolutely loved spending a few hours playing, watching and talking all things Skylanders and he had his face painted by the most talented face painter EVER. Puts my attempts at the school fete to shame!
Is it a crocodile? Is it a dragon? I have no freaking idea and don’t even ask me what it’s called. He was chattering away to some other kids and it was like he was speaking a foreign language!
I kept forgetting he’d had his face painted and wondered why people on the tube were looking at my kid! I think he’d have happily left it on and never washed again if we’d let him!
