Me and m'boy went for a wee walk through the park this morning. I thought I'd take the opportunity while Jack here was in good form. If my husband and I had ever thought we'd hit the 'terrible twos' before, we were wrong. Now we have. Jack's two new, favourite, and regularly used phrases are, "Don't like that" and "Don't need to". A few examples of these in context? Yesterday he didn't like 1) his lunch 2) mummy writing a reminder with pen on my hand 3) the noise of the vacuum cleaner. He also apparently doesn't need to 1) count from 1 like the rest of us. (He has learned how to count to 10, but prefers to start from 8) 2) stop watching Toy Story 3) sit on the naughty step for the abundance of tantrums we see every day. Phew. I'm sure I'll hear both these sentences many more times before the day is out.
Today, Jack wore the American Apparel Fishermans jumper and kids flannel long sleeve shirt. (What? Who told you I've just bought myself both these exact same items in my size too? Okay, I confess, I did! He just makes them look so good. Honestly AA you will be the death of me.) His jeans are Zara Kids, and many thanks to my wonderful affiliate Hunter for sending Jack these amazing original kids boots. Which I also own in my size. Yes, It is an effort in the mornings to make sure we're not wearing identical outfits.
