What a morning we have had! Francesca is only at school this afternoon so we went into town after dropping Elizabeth off with the intention of buying Nathaniel his first shoes. He screamed and wriggled and didn't want to play at all! He refused to stand up, he wouldn't walk, nightmare! I must thank the lovely Heather who spent more than an hour with us this morning. She went and found him a car to play with, she left us alone for a while, she came back again, she managed (in fits and starts) to try on and fit two pairs of shoes. Thanks Heather, you really earned your money this morning!!
I said; "show me your new shoes!" (excited Mummy voice) and he did this;
This is the Nathaniel version of f*** off and leave me alone! He is still not a happy boy!
He has worked out that he can undo them and take them off, I will be searching for my staple gun later!
My baby boy is really turning into a big boy now!
