This week we celebrated the joys of reading, books and all things literacy with Book Week.
Lily's Preschool hosted an adorable event - Bedtime Stories! The kids came along to the school at night (!) cosied up in pyjamas and dressing gowns (!!). A lovely local author told charming stories to enchant the children and it was a very special little evening for all. Lily was thrilled with the outing :)
This is E's collection of 'trucks'.
His latest adorable quirk is an obsession with them. He (I am not kidding) diligently moves them around from room to room with him through out the day. ALL OF THEM. It is so funny! He parks them under a table in the bedroom over night too.
He regularly asks me with utmost sincerity and seriousness 'Do you love my trucks, Mummy?'
Yes, I do, Eli. I really do. (And by trucks, I mean you).
I loooove these little tootsies!
These feet kick and swing and wiggle underneath the highchair, seemingly disconnected to what is going on above the highchair tray.
Yes, they originally had socks on them, but they soon found themselves on the floor. I am yet to find socks or booties that this kid cannot remove in less than three minutes. Truly.

I recently started reading 'Chapter Books' with Lily. My Mum has been reading them to her for a while and when she turned five I thought I had better start too! :) We have been cosily working our way through the Milly-Molly-Mandy series. Love snuggling with her in the evening, reading these enchanting little tales and bringing back memories of when I read them as a little girl. The stories are just so charming and sweet! And so is the time quietly reading with my girl.

Mark took Eli out for a 'father and son' night - a haircut and some fun games at an arcade.
I don't think I am overstating it to say it was pretty much the best night of Eli's life!! He had SO MUCH FUN just having one-on-one time with Daddy, plus all the fun and noise and craziness in the arcade.
Somehow my little boy went out a three year old and came home looking at least five?!?! So grown up!!! The short hair, the touch of gel (90's style!) from the hairdresser and the big adventure out just with his beloved Dad all contributed to one very happy little/big boy.
|Thumbs up for a fun night out with his awesome Daddy!|
