1. Going to fun places you're not allowed in without children. (I'm looking at you giant slide in soft play.)
2. Dressing them in fancy dress.
3. Children's books.
I LOVE children's books and have constant urges to buy new ones. We read a lot in our house, first thing in the morning, at snack time, after lunch, and at least 3 books before bed. There's a lot of reading going on. Our current favourites are Don't Spill the Milk, (which has amazing pictures and such a sweet story), Paddington and the Tutti Frutti Rainbow (because it's about ice cream) and The Snail and the Whale (which has recently regained favour after we saw it 'live' at the theatre).
We also have a large collection of Shirley Hughes books. Dogger is definitely in my boy's top 3 Of All Time and Alfie Gets in First will always hold a very special place in my heart because it was the first 'proper' book I read to him where he followed the story, asked questions and really seemed to 'get it'. We still read it from time to time and it had come back in favour this week, which was great timing as we were sent a brand new Alfie book to review!
