As we were leaving the house to drop off the boys at daycare I complained that I was hungry because I hadn't had time to have any breakfast. Jack said I could have something to eat at daycare - but I would have to sit on the chair to eat. I asked Jack if that was a daycare rules and if they had lots of rules. He said yes to both so I asked if we should have more rules at home. Jack said we should so I asked :

 " What rules should we have?"

Jack: " The train rule"

Me: "How does the the train rule go"

Jack" The train rule - there are two carriages"

Me: And what other rules?"

Jack "The batman rule"

Me: And how does that go?

Jack " It goes ....." (here he makes the gesture with no sound)

Me "It goes ..."

Jack " No, you don't go ....., I go ....."


So there you have it - some rules to live be - according to Jack Hudson

Mum & Dad and I took the boys and Ollie to Staglands in the weekend. Staglands is full of various farm animals which the boys petted, fed (and chased!). They climbed hills, ate food, climbed on all sorts of things, shouted, ran and laughed.

We all had a great time but were exhausted by the end of it. Jack had picked up a stick and was getting a bit ratty and poked me with it so I took it off him and threw it away. He howled and screamed and cried as only a tired three-year-old can but after a while we engaged in mutual apologies and peace was restored.

Once we started talking again I asked the boys what was the best bit of the day. Jack replied "Finding my stick"

DINOSAUR. EIEIO. With a Ra Ra here and a Stomp Stomp there here a Roar Ra there a Stomp everywhere a Ra Stomp. Welcome to the world of singing with Jack. I contributed the conventional words - he contributed the others. On each subsequent verse it turned out that Old MacDonald had a ... "Another dinosaur" with similar sound effects.

Ah well, we've moved on from the days where his vocab limited us to a Dog each verse and now it's his passions that limit us....

One feature of going out with Jack is that he always likes to take something with him - often he says he wishes to show it to someone or other "I want to show Wadey my rock" or whatever. This means there is a constant flow of objects out to the car and sometimes strange things to bring back in. Today I had to bring in the bamboo steamer from the wok.

Leading up to Easter Jack took part in Easer egg decorating at Playcentre - which involved splashing a bit of paint on a plastic egg. Lately the plastic egg has re-emerged - he has been carrying it around along with his Tyrannosaurus Rex and explaining it's his dinosaur egg.
