Y3 - 123/365: His Loyal Subjects
We've finally taken one of Ryan's final Christmas gifts out of the box this past week -- his Happyland Castle from his Nan and Grandad. Up until now we've been hesitant as he has a knack for throwing and dropping things and we didn't want him to break it, but he's been pretty good with it since we first opened it late last week, so today we brought it downstairs for a bit so he could have a play.
His main interests are putting the characters on the towers...or in his mouth...
...but the way I see it, he at least has an honest interest in them and it's one toy that has managed to capture his attention for longer than 5-10 minutes.
He even started to stack them in a queue around his sippy cup!
And he's incorporating other, unrelated, toys into the role play experience...
"Come here Mister Dinosaur...how would you like to snack on this yummy Friar? I've taste-tested him myself!"
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
