The small people came round this morning for a visit bearing Christmas gifts for under the tree which The Other Child had brought in a box.
Small children are a bit like cats where boxes are concerned – they are far more interesting than the contents themselves and must be sat in.
You can play peek a boo
And pretend it’s a boat
Or just look cute for the camera
Not to mention a bit smug at how clever you are on the quiet…
Big sisters however, remain unimpressed and have been know to avert their eyes away from all the nonsense because they are FAR too grown up now for that sort of thing
And in the end it all just gets too much for a boy.
