I had this lovely book full of thick plain paper which I had been saving for something special,
I started with a message for LL
I found the inspiration for the pages from various places, including various journalling websites. I thought it would be good for her to explore her inner world and learn to articulate her thoughts.
She started filling in the pages as soon as I gave it to her. This was my favourite bit in the journal (number six about her little sister).
I'm very interested to see what the letters below will look like, especially the one to her dad (as the two are always squabbling).
I know this will keep her occupied, now i just have to think of lots of things to do with the boys, although I am starting each day asking them what they would like to do so we can plan the day together.
At the moment, they have disappeared downstairs whilst I feed the baby and type this with one hand and I can hear the hoover. I asked Little Man what they are doing and he tells me that Little Lady is washing dishes and he is hoovering. A pretty good start to the day I reckon! Let's see how long this lasts.
