Children love to play hide and seek and Ben is no exception. He particularly enjoys playing in the cupboards at Aunty Claire’s house. Today Ben and Hugo were having a ball hiding in the cupboard when little fingers got jammed in the door. Unfortunately this is the downside to hiding in the cupboard but WILL NEVER deter a serious player! On this occasion Ben was a little upset and my kisses didn’t seem to calm the tears. Uncle Al saved the day. He spoke to Ben so gently, took his little hand, enveloped in his big hands around Ben’s and blew a magic breath on his finger. WOW…… it was so sweet and worked a treat. Thanks Uncle Al that is a keeper.
On Thursday we (Ben, Andrew and I) met Aunty Claire at Ikea for a little shopping. Aunty Claire is expecting a baby and her belly is growing rather large – it is beautiful. Ben took quite a fascination with her belly. He would rub and pat it all the while with a knowing smile on his face. Does he know his little cousin is in there or is it just something nice to play with? Anyhow we await the arrival of their little bundle with excitement. Ben can’t wait to meet his cousin.
