Getting Ready for School

… Not! This is Little Yum-Yum most school day mornings. He talks about Megazords and Power Rangers in his sleep, and tries to hide under the covers when I try to wake him up. When he does finally get up, the first thing he says is “I want breakfast!” or “Love you, mummy”.

Definitely amusing, but can be quite challenging, as he has no sense of time. Not quite sure what to do to get him moving!

This Collection is Growing

This Collection is Growing

Max’s fascination with the Power Rangers is growing more and more each day.

Once he gets a character, he tells me the next one to get just minutes after opening the package! To make matters worse, some Zords can connect with each other creating an even bigger Zord, so you really do get roped in to purchasing quite a lot!

Let’s see how far he gets with this collection before he decides to move on to the next thing, like he did with PAW Patrol.

When Your Son Thinks He’s a Zord

When Your Son Thinks He's a Zord

It’s no secret Max is a huge fan of Power Rangers… at least for now!

On this particular occasion, he wanted to be a Power Ranger Zord.

Although Max has a toy cooking pot on his head, I think he’s pretty close!

I always believe children should be allowed to use their imagination by playing freely. Yes, as a parent, I interact with him, but only when he asks me to. When I do play along, I always play the way he wants me to, as I believe it makes it more fun for him. After all, it is the only time he’s not being told what to do (for example, brush your teeth, go to bed, etc). I guess it gives him the┬ácourage to be in control at times.

What are your thoughts on children taking the lead during play time?

Go Go Power Rangers!


Max has become such a fan of Power Rangers. Dino (Super) Charge to be more specific. Here he is admiring the ‘morpher’ and his favourite ranger, Tyler.

He has now has the green ranger (Riley), and I have the blue one (Koda) ready to give to him for good behaviour.

It’s amazing how quickly children go from one thing to the next. Just a couple of months ago, it was all about PAW PAtrol.

Time really does fly. Max has gotten so big, it has left me wondering where the time has gone.
