Right now Curly Haired Beauty is really into reading Thomas the tank engine.
I have to say ’Once upon a time and then we read out the names of all the engines on the back of the book.
There are a lot of trains; they all have really silly names for trains.
I have accidentally named Thing 1 and Thing 2 after trains!
CHB knows all their names by heart – she can’t really read properly but recognises her name and a few words and all her alphabet. She must have a very good memory for a 3 year old.
D has been coaching her to read with phonetics – we find her chatting to herself sounding out letters and pointing to road signs. Sssssss aaaaaaahhhh ppuuuuuurrrrrrrr.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 love books – but they like to eat them.
I have lots of chewed up books with corners missing.
All of CHB baby books which were in immaculate condition have been destroyed in a matter of weeks by the teething twosome.
I can really see the difference in boy babies compared to girl babies. I am so not prepared for a boy’s world. We are in trouble…
