Game Time

20180408_151822 (546x640)

Little Yum-Yum loves to play Four in a Row/Connect Four, but he’s such a cheat! Red is his favourite colour, so I always have to use the yellow counters. What you can see here is his version of the game; every time I drop a counter, he follows and drops one on top as he believes he is ‘trapping’ me in.

I’ve tried to explain this is not how the game is played, but he is adamant it is. So for now, I’ll just let him play it his way – after all, it’s all about having fun.

Picture Day

Last week, I received this text from Little Yum-Yum’s school – Picture Day!

So, he had a haircut, and in the morning (yesterday) I smoothed down his eyebrows and checked he had no boogers inside his nose.

I am so excited, and cannot wait to see Max’s first official school photo(s). Of course I am going to order more than I need to … well, because I can! Not sure how long it will take before I am able to obtain them, but I will certainly share them with our WP Family when I do!


Madame Tussauds

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, the children have been learning about Superheroes.¬†Little Yum-Yum and his class went on a school trip to Madame Tussauds to see them in person! Well, the waxworks, but it is still a wonderful experience.

According to the website (which is where I got these screenshots from), there will be a number of well known characters available, which I’m sure will capture the children’s attention at all times.

I volunteered to go, as the children were going by public transport, so I wanted to keep an eye on Max. It’s the first time he’s gone anywhere without me. Even at preschool I managed to go on the trips with him. However, I was denied the privilege. “They have to learn to be independent”.

I did think to purchase a ticket and hide behind the figures – just so I could see for myself the trip was running smoothly. Instead, I waited for the trip to be over, and called the school to see if they had arrived back safely.

InnoTab Max Learning Software

As part of his birthday and Christmas presents, Little Yum-Yum received a few ‘games’ for his InnoTab Max. However, these are educational, but encourages fun learning. The power Rangers characters/theme has been used for maths, Spider-Man for science, and DC Super Friends for Language Arts.

He hasn’t caught on yet. All he sees are superheros.
