Wind up Robot

I love the retro wind up robot we got at the science museum today.

Logical leaps

August 12th, 2016

Tonight, Oscar was a it worried about robbers coming in the night to take his toys. We had a chat about it, including police, and jobs and how robbers rob because they can’t get a job… It all culminated in this set of logical leaps by Oscar.

“I want to be a policeman when I’m big, to tell the robbers what to do. They rob because they can’t get a job. Maybe I can tell them what job to get. Oh, except I don’t know much about that… But they could be a policeman! … No. That won’t work. If they’re all police, then there’ll be no robbers. An then what will the police do?”

“Oh, what do the police do when there’s no robbers?”

“I don’t know. We haven’t got to that level yet, have we, Daddy”

“Hmm. Maybe you can think about it a bit more. But now it’s time to go to sleep!”

Disneyland 2015

November 17th, 2015

We all went to Disneyland Paris for my birthday. Nan-Nan and Aunty Sarah joined us, and Oscar especially loved playing lego with Nan-Nan!

We got on lots of rides, and everyone did a great job of queuing.

We had an extra special breakfast, with Mickey Mouse, Tigger, and friends dropping in to say “Hi”, and play with Oscar’s toys. Read the rest of this entry »

Fish food!

November 17th, 2015

This is Joshua’s favourite game at the moment: he goes in the cupboard to get the fish food to feed the fish, but if it’s not time to feed them yet, then instead he takes the food out and puts it back in to the box. Repeat.

He smells like fish 🐟🐠

Weekend with the boys

July 21st, 2015

I looked after Oscar and Joshua all day without Mummy for the first time! We had lots of fun, plenty of food, drink and naps. And almost enough nappy changes and goes on the toilet.

We watched Iron Giant (good and exciting, but unlike Big Hero 6 failed to make Oscar cry when the robot sacrifices himself.)

And we went to my old park, which was good, although a little worse for wear! Read the rest of this entry »
