The fun of the school holidays means I can have my niece and nephew over in the middle of the day. For playing in the park, and being creative indoors.
This doona cover from Just Bedding (gifted) has been a hit. Fantasy styling in a sari print, my pillow case gets a good reception when I take it for sleepover shifts, and the kids were all over and under this bright happy print!
I have even coerced under it for Liam to tell me a fantastic story about Frozen, Makka Pakka, Optimus Prime and explosions. Several times.
Lego Guitar Hero was then insisted on, and we rocked out!
Emmet: I’m just gonna come right out, I have no idea what’s going on or what this place is at all.
Unikitty: Hi! I am Princess Unikitty, and I welcome you all to Cloud Cuckoo Land!
Emmet: So there are no signs on anything. How does anyone know what not to do?
Unikitty: Here in Cloud Cuckoo Land, there are no rules: There’s no government, no baby sitters, no bedtimes, no frowny faces, no bushy mustaches, and no negativity of any kind.
Lucy: You just said the word “no” like a thousand times.
Unikitty: And there’s also no consistency.
Today I went to the Bloggers Brunch. targeted at Mummy Bloggers, I still went along, to schmooze with the companies and to see what was what in te blogosphere for parents. I nabbed the above products for my efforts. Oh and a glass off wine. And fruit.
While my fave goodies of the day were the stuff from the Lego Friends (aka girly) range, I couldn’t help but think back and realise I didn’t have girly lego. And I loved it.
Maybe I’m contradictory and going to screw up my offspring, but I love the idea of not needed BOY toys and GIRL toys. My niece has a Lamaze tool set to chew on. And I think that’s awesome. I don’t think I’d go this far, but if have a daughter, she will share my love of cricket and trains.
