In many ways the passions of an almost two year old seem predictable - wiggles, bob the builder, fireman sam.

These days Luke seems to live for the wiggles and when we went to the library today he firmly clutched his wiggles dvd in one hand and his bear in the other for the duration of our visit. After we got home I put on Jack's DVD (superheros) while Luke came to draw with me for a bit but he seemed to sense that fair's fair and after Jack had watched a few episodes Luke started to repeat the mantra 'wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle'. He submitted to a nappy change once it became clear I was complying & settled into wiggly bliss

One thing we don't need to worry about in our new house is our furniture leaving indents in the carpet. That's because on a daily basis our furniture is pushed into new and strange configurations as part of Jack's latest creation. On a good day there is no sticky tape involved but as often as not he uses an entire roll of packing tape to finesse his creation. Every item of furniture in the lounge plus a few other bits of whatever Jack can find (like a tarp or a cardboard box or 3) is likely to be taped into it.


A lot of effort goes into moving the furniture as Jack is still not much taller than the sofa and his partner in crime definitely isn't!

Jack was getting upset about Lukey engaging in one of his new favourite games in the car - yelling really loudly over and over again. He took it upon himself to make Luke stop using caveman like sophistication. I told Jack off and Jack explained it was because Luke was hurting his ears. I told Jack it was Luke's game and if Jack didn't like it he needed to change the game. We had more argument about whether Luke yelling at the top of his voice was really a game but I demonstrated how singing singing twinkle twinkle little star would get Luke to stop yelling and another millisecond of motherhood was survived.

 Later this afternoon on the way home Luke started yelling again. Jack started singing twinkle twinkle little star and after the requisite delay for my brain to start functioning I joined in followed by Luke. I couldn't believe it Jack had listened to me! Of course it didn't take long before Jack was dictating such classy lines as 'If you're happy and you know it poo in your pants'

Luke has a pretty wide vocab now including the requisite car, truck, bus, a-pear (aeroplane), bob (the builder), wiggle(s). He can string a a couple of words together as in 'that way', 'bear wet' or 'I'm poo'.

 The other day we were getting ready to go out and Lukey started gooing shoos shoos. I went to his bedroom to get his shoes, only to run into him on the way back bringing my shoes to me!

Recently Jack and I had a conversation about good guys and bad guys. As with many of our conversations this one focussed on the central figures in his life - good spiderman and bad spiderman. After Jack explaining his view of the world (good spiderman is good and bad spiderman is bad) I told Jack that in the real world people are a bit good and a bit bad and that even when they do bad things they have to keep trying to do good things. "Mummy does bad things sometimes but I keep trying and trying and trying to be good".

 Later that day I noticed Jack resisting hitting Lukey - even thought Lukey was actually being quite aggravating to him. I told Jack that I was impressed by this and he told me "I keep trying and trying and trying and trying"
