Under my Umbrella



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.

  4. What a handsome young man, and from experience I can tell you I had two boys and the terrible two's were just that. TERRIBLE! But fortunate enough I had two girls too that offset the boys, so at least I wasn't pulling out my hair, and they had great grandparents that always gave me a break. Thanks for sharing those great photos. He's definitely a cutie pie!

  5. I love your photos. His outfit is adorable, I love that you have the same clothes :) My almost 2 year olds favorite phrase right now is "I not ike it", or "i on't WANT to". Yay.

  22. Oh my goodness he looks so innocent in your photo's. Having been through the "terrible two's" though with my Granddaughter I can relate. She's 8 now and coming into that pre-teen "attitude" so good luck!

  30. Jack looks awful cute. The twos are a walk in the park compared to the 14s 15s 16s, and 17s! You do have a bit of a break coming since you've got a cute little boy there and not a girl.

  33. Oh, he's so handsome and adorable! And I love the boots! Not watching Toy Story 3 is a good thing though, isn't it? Especially if you'd watched it too for the nth time. I've watched a lot of kid's movies in my 11 years as a mom, and boy, am I glad each time a movie is out of the "favorite of the week" list. Love your blog! Followed on GFC.
