mixed bag of conversation tonight.

on the one hand, we read a story about space and had a chat about how we get night and day because the earth is like a ball and spins round while we sleep.

on the other hand: "daddy i like my scrotum because it is hairy hahahaha"

@bcf_ant ha! we are doing a whole week away and while it is lovely, it would be great if someone else could play with M for a bit 💤

already looking forward to going to bed tonight

@frankieroberto drawing up a 'story of bedtime' with him and generally being tighter with routine at the end of the day. seems to be working so far!

welcome to the world of a feverish 3-year-old, where it seems the correct way to defuse a gathering tantrum and send him happily back to sleep is to draw him a picture of a napping dinosaur ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

my partner is a wonderful genius and has figured out how to make M go to sleep at a reasonable time again and she is the best <3

This is new.

dreaming again of a holiday that is basically just a library with a crèche

@hhulbert @genmon +1 on anbesol. +1 also on sympathies. at least they only have a finite number of teeth!

M, pointing at puddle: I call these ‘wet chaps’

It’s a lovely day, so all the playgrounds are full of kids and we can’t go anywhere near them. We are the Flying Dutchman of pox.

@hhulbert haven't ventured any futher than a couple tracks on Youtube, but this will be a fun thing to try with M!

@hhulbert no way! one of M’s favourites at the moment is Birdhouse. How is half term?
