It’s been so long since my last Little Pea and Me day that he’s practically a grown up. Well, he’s still three, but he is certainly growing up. I picked him up after a very cold and soggy hill running session on Saturday morning (what the hell happened to me? Cold, wet and I went running. Up hills.) and told him I was a bit cold. ‘You have a shower when we get to your house’ he told me ‘that will warm you up.’ He’s a clever thing.
Due to the weather our usual outside adventure was out, but we found a few things to do instead. We learned from a book about how Daddy penguins look after the Mummy penguins egg while they look for food. This is Little Pea being a Daddy Penguin:
We had a picnic lunch (although there seemed to be a bit of confusion over the number of blankets required and where they should go):
Then Little Pea found my head torch and used it to inspect the washing:
But apparently you can never have enough torches, and he found my bike lights too. We went out like this – to the local scout jumble sale in fact – where many people complimented Little Pea on his….brightness (shortly before he blinded them with the head torch).
We bought a toy car at the jumble sale, and obviously a car needs a garage, so when we got home we made one. But the good thing about a garage is that it has multiple uses. Here it’s being a knight’s helmet. Norman was just confused.
It wasn’t quite our usual adventure, but I think we both had a pretty good time for a rainy Saturday :o)
