Millie’s first competition win

A complete surprise this morning when there was a knock at the door with the postman handing me a large white parcel! At first I thought it was the Walkers competition prize that we had won a few weeks ago. Millie had entered a competition on the National Geographic Kids website and won this awesome prize! When she came in from school she decided to read the summary of each book and chose to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School, she absolutely loves this book she didn’t put it down until she had finished it, she has even started to read it for a second time. The other two books we are saving for the Easter holidays! So thank you to National Geographic kids Millie loves her prize.

 

Weekdays and trying to persuade your child to get ready! 

Well i couldn’t of named this any better! But since it’s Monday tomorrow it got me thinking, Since my daughter has turned 7 I spend most of the morning saying get dressed, brush your teeth and wash your face and i don’t just say it the once, I should really just record my voice and play it every weekday. 

Then you have the sleeping in longer on a weekday and up as soon as it’s light on a weekend!! When she gets up to read a book or play with her shopkins it literally sounds like an interior wall is being knocked down! 

Half term, books and reading!

Half term is nearly over, we have had a great time, Our daughter actually slept past 6!  We actually haven’t had any “I am bored” moments. We have been out for walks, visiting family, shopping and had a really yummy meal out. Now we just have to make the most of the weekend ahead!

If my 7 year old had to pick between her iPad and reading, she would pick up her favourite book and read which she has done this half term. Reading has been so beneficial it has even encouraged my daughter to write and tell her own little story’s.

There are many books that she has loved reading when she was a toddler she loved ‘Aliens love underpants’ we got a lot of giggles with those books. As of late it is the ‘Flying Fergus’ series by Chris Hoy, she can read perfectly but she still loves her dad reading too her at bedtime.


I’m so proud of her love for books and how she has progressed, however I do miss the days when we were able to talk in code where she didn’t know what was being discussed.
