Y3 - 240/365: One Little Duck Went Swimming One Day...

We finally got the parcel my Nan sent over a month ago for Ryan. Apparently it has been sitting in customs and we had no idea until we received a letter in the post that we had to pay nearly £33 to pick it up. So, this morning Matt took Ryan and me (both bunged up, Ryan with snot and me, a sore throat) to the Parcel Force depot in Birmingham to get the box.

Ryan helped Daddy open it when we got home and the first thing Ryan did when he saw inside the box was grab the yellow duck! But he did agree to a couple of kisses first, to be fair.

I think the thing he liked the most of all was the blanket that Nanny made for him. He kept laying it on the carpet and lying down saying, "Ahhhhhhhh!"

Of the items that she sent, these were the ones I could see Ryan getting the most use of. She sent quite a few outfits and PJ sets, but unfortunately they were too small, and the rest will most definitely shrink the first time they are washed.

Here's what he thought of his Thomas the Tank Engine book...

I’ve tried all sorts of coughing syrups, believe me, but none of them helps. Even though Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa does not eliminates the cough I like to stick to this chinese syrup I’ve been taking since I was a kid: Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. My grandfather is chinese, so I guess my mom got the advice from him. I was really surprised when I found that chinese market selling it here in Belgium. It does have a refreshing, soothing, sweetening effect…as long as it lasts…then back to coughing mode.
