siblings me and mine“A portrait of my boys, once a week, every week, in 2016″.

This week has been very low key and most afternoons we have been in the house building dens, painting or playing games. They also watched ‘Frozen’ the whole way through for the first time ever…because previously Win has been too scared of the snow monster! They also love playing ‘Paw Patrol’ after they were introduced to it by their grandparents – they talk about it a lot and it entertains them for ages. It involves pretending they are dogs and going on rescue missions.

W: Win made a little story book earlier in the week. He stapled about ten pieces of paper together, drew pictures and then told me what to write for each page. In this picture he is eagerly telling Ru about it – but Ru wasn’t very interested. I often wonder what Win would be like if he didn’t have a sibling – would he be different? and how? because at the moment I feel like they are shaping each other so much.

R: Ru has been completely full of cold this week and feeling a little sorry for himself.

    I love this- I love how much younger siblings learn from having an older sibling about. Ours love Paw Patrol so much we ended up with a dog named ‘Chase’ so definitely stick with creating Win’s books!
    I hope Ru is in for a better week.

      Absolutely – isn’t it amazing? You must have got serious brownie points for agreeing to call your dog ‘Chase’! Love that! xx

    My girls are really into paw patrol at the moment too. And Mabel loves making ‘books’ I think it’s such a lovely imaginative thing to do, I love it!

      Couldn’t agree more! It’s lovely! I have never even seen Paw Patrol but it seems the world is obsessed! Haha xx

    I hope Ru feels better soon! Win making a book may just be the cutest thing. Our two play Paw Patrol all the time – Troy is always Rubble and Athena is Skye and together they go on missions and rescue things. It always ends with ‘We saved the day!’. Kids are awesome x

      Aw Donna! That is so sweet. Mine start of arguing about who is who, but then it keeps them entertained for ages. Kids are brilliant! xx

    Such a lovely photo – I love your window seat! My toddler likes to ‘read’ to his brother too…he can pretty much recite Stick Man even though he can’t actually read it! #LivingArrows
