I heard them before I saw them. It's kind of their new thing.
I wanted a photo but I wanted to take it without them knowing I was taking it.
So I set the camera to no flash and hoped there would be enough light. "Click!"
Definitely not enough light and now I've blown my cover. But despite the blurriness, I still love those first two shots. Stinkin' cute.
I said something along the lines of, "Pretend I'm not here." and it is testimony to the power of Imagine by Alison Lester that they did just that. This is seriously their favourite book right now. It's handy that they both love the same one at the same time but the book itself, albeit brilliant, is kind of annoying to read because it could go on forever.
Every second page is a world the reader is invited to imagine being a part of – jungle, ocean, farm etc. – and the page is filled with illustrations of the animals you would find in that world. Flipping to the back of the book reveals a key that names every single animal on the page. ALL OF THEM. So the idea is that the boys take turns choosing an animal and then we flip to the back to discover what that animal is. We try to limit it to three animals each before turning to a new page. Otherwise, seriously, the book would never end.
Yes, you read right. It's a Cock-of-the-rock.
Don't tell me that this two-year-old isn't fucking with us…..
