Jai is now 5.5 years young. This means he acts like a teenager with lots of toys.
The Duplo spirals around the bigger pieces, slowly spreading across the known galaxy. Some blocks are now satellites travelling around the house, seeking out toes to connect with.
Lounge pillows stand forlornly encasing his desk. His idea of a DIY cubby. Surprisingly, it works.
Answering to his own name is uncommon and takes serious effort for anyone wanting his attention. Slowly we are convincing him that reaponding to the first request is in his best interest. A few times we have fooled him by whispering ‘Ice Cream’ to his little brother. His hearing miraculously reappears.
And the list of teenage activities goes on and on.
You’d think with all this I would have many more stories to tell, both funny and serious.
But many aren’t for all.
Right now he is in his second week of Reception. It’s just the beginning of 13 years of schooling. 13 years!
Since he is at school, I have working in my one-man small-business ‘Mow&Wash‘. So stories of his escapades, bravado, lunacy and literature are few and far between.
He is forever the ONLY artist in our house (apparently photography is not an art), so I will show you his artwork more often.
Younger brother Aidan is now providing funny and worthwhile stories. Watch this space….
