As I write this month’s post, I have both kids at home with me. Right now, I hear the Muppets Most Wanted soundtrack playing, they are off in another room with swords, costumes and a lot of laughter. This is a normal day.
When they are together there is always laughter, imaginary play and a lot of noise! They do quieten down when watching TV, but I’d say that’s about the only time when friction can arise between these two as TV choices are clearly the most important and contentious decisions they make all day!
As Little Man comes up to starting school, Boo likes to talk to him about it and he’s keen to follow in her footsteps. His confidence grows month on month and his ability to keep up with Boo as they run and play closes that near three year age gap between them all of the time. They remain the very best of friends, it is truly lovely to see and a relief for me as their parent!
Boo aged 7 years and 8 months, Little Man aged 4 years and 9 months. Love them.
