Benjamin just loves the new stools I bought last weekend. He can’t get enough of sitting up at the bench and helping me cook. Here he is chopping the carrots for dinner. Apparently I didn’t chop them small enough! That is blunt cheese knife Ben is using – it has to be hard work!!
I am continually amazed at the power the Wiggles has over Benjamin. He loves them. I would not have thought that a one year old could really enjoy television or be able to tell one TV show from another. Well surprise surprise they can. It is no secret that as a Early Childhood Teacher I am not a fan of children watching TV but as a parent I say ‘Bring on the Wiggles’. It has become a 5pm ritual in our house that the ‘Wiggles’ or ‘Play School’ gets put on until it is bath time. What a godsend they are. The past few weeks Ben has been teething and has been terrible at eating his dinner. Tonight in front of the new Wiggles DVD – You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, he ate every single bite and was looking for more. The Wiggles have definitely made our lives easier and do I dare say a little more enjoyable. I must also add that I love Play School and Ben is very partial to the DVD – Play School Out of the Box (especially Wednesday). He will get this DVD and pass it to me and say ‘Broooommm, Brooommm’. That is his way of saying Wednesday’s episode as it has a car song. He squeals with delight when you put it on. I never thought I would be a fan of children watching DVD’s but for short periods it is fantastic!!
