Happy Easter

I bought some raffle tickets for the Easter Raffle at Little Yum-Yum’s school. We won an Easter Egg! Woo hoo! However, I must say, it did make me laugh when I unwrapped it; as you can see, the prize came with toothbrushes! Now that’s a hint and a half to brush one’s teeth after eating something sweet. I’ve never experienced this before, but it was certainly amusing.

On another note, Max made an Easter card,

which featured a drawing of him and I, complete with a heart.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend WP Family. Blessings to you all.

Land of the Dinosaurs

Well, not quite, thankfully! Little Yum-Yum has a collection of dinosaurs which were purchased when we visited The Natural History Museum.

The Dinosaur Adventure Set came with 23 miniature dinosaurs and a map. However, this was not enough for Master Maximus, so he also got the big versions of

a triceratops and

a Tyrannosaurus Rex, his favourite.

Could you imagine these creatures still roaming the Earth?

Spring is in the Air

Ah, yes. Spring is in the air at last, and Little Yum-Yum knows it.

“Plants need sun and water to grow.”, he said randomly. So grabbed his watering can, filled it with water, then started watering the plants in the garden.

One of the After School Clubs Max attends is Natural Thinkers/Outdoor Learning. It’s his favourite club. He talks to me a lot about nature, and often wants me to venture out with him so he can explore.

Sky Garden

Friday 9th March was Inset Day aka Teachers Training Day for Little Yum-Yum’s school.

I decided to take him to Sky Garden to see the views of London.

We could have taken the bus there, but he wanted to go by tube/London Underground. He and Teddy could not contain their excitement!

It was a pretty gloomy day, but this was the view when we reached the top of the building.

Max and Teddy enjoying the view,

when Max spotted The London Eye, whereby he spoke about his visit during last summer.

A different view included Tower Bridge,

whilst Max pointed out passing vehicles which now looked incredibly small.

Cute poses in the indoor garden,

then he got a little too curious, so wanted to explore the different plants. I don’t think the public are allowed to walk through the non-paved areas. I explained this to him, and in the photo on the right, he is telling me to go ask a member of staff!

Unfortunately, we left shortly afterwards because there wasn’t much else to do.

Are You Sure?

This is the logo on Little Yum-Yum’s uniform.

According to him, this dragon is eating a banana. I tried to explain that it wasn’t; it’s the tongue or even fire, but he insists that it is what he says it is. To be fair, looking at it, I can see why. The paw/claw is too close to the face.

Max’s comment certainly made me chuckle! A banana eating dragon … How about that?!
