I love this photo taken one morning when Ru and O were just flicking through some books. I love that O is reading ‘Zagazoo’, a hilarious Quentin Blake book describing what it is really like to be a parent of a young child. Will the child wake up an elephant? a wart hog? a dragon? a vulture? or a hairy creature that is far worse?
R: Ru is forever trying to get out of washing his hands after going to the toilet. A line from this week: “Mum, I didn’t wash my hands, and they don’t even smell of wee”…said with utter glee!
O: I’d forgotten about the stage when babies start pointing to where they want to go. Often I pick O up and he directs me around the house showing me all of his points of interest…which happens to include the bookshelf, the bathroom and the medicine box where we keep the Calpol (!)
haha bless, I love that stage where babies point to everything, too cute!
My son hates washing his hands too – mainly because he’s terrified of the noise of the handriers in public toilets (which I don’t make him use – I let him dry his hands on my cardigan normally!). If he could get out of washing them at all though he’d be very happy! #livingarrows
Glad he’s not the only one! Sometimes his hands are so sticky too! x
I love their expressions here so funny!
Concentration is there! x
I’ve not come across Zagazoo before, I’ll have to keep an eye out for that one!
It’s really endearing! x
That’s such a sweet photo. We haven’t come across that book yet. i’ll be looking into that! #livingarrows
Thank you x
How are your boys so big already?! This looks like Win and Ru when I first started reading your blog. Athena always has discussions about washing hands. Now that I’ve told her germs are invisible she is pretty disgusted at the thought of them and so washes her hands extra carefully! x
Win is a super clean kid…Ru not so much. Maybe when he starts nursery he will do it willingly…and without being reminded! Win hates the thought of germs too! x
