Story time


A rare picture of me! Looking a bit silly with my mouth open but I was speaking at the time... These are my favourite times, sharing story books with the girls (even if you do have to read the same ones over and over). It was a unexpected treat that my family called in one evening on their way home from a day out. They wanted to get the girls into their pyjamas so that they'd fall asleep in the car on the way back. It works better than trying to keep them awake beyond their usual bedtime.

E is hugging her current favourite toy cat, which lives at my house. She remembered where it was and climbed all the stairs up to the attic bedroom especially to retrieve it so she could cuddle it. Its nose lights up and it purrs when you stroke it! M is busy signing to me what she can see in the picture book. Bless her, she is a super little communicator these days. She has limited words as yet at 18 months, but she signs a lot of things (her mum has counted that she knows at least 57 signs now) and it's fascinating to see what she notices and wants to tell you about.

  1. Pic looks beautiful. Both are eagerly listening to the stories. It was a good idea not to let the child wake up after their bed time.
    My kid used to have a cute dog with him while sleeping...
