I haven't done one of these things for a while.

Lily loves....
Baby Ruby doll
Hide and seek
Singing along to nursery rhymes
Riding her bike
Sticking and glueing
Making dens
Pickled onions
Bubbles in the bath
Dressing up
Goldilocks and the three bears
Legging it.


The new love of Lily's life....

To Bee...

This month Lily is mostly in to disagreeing.
She can say a lot of cool stuff but generally her favourite thing to do is argue the toss. First, rather annoyingly, she will persistently ask you what something is and then, even more annoyingly, after you explain what it is she will tell you you are wrong.
For example my conversation this morning went a bit like this:
Lily: "What's that Mummy?"
Me: "That's a wasp"
Lily: "No! That's not a wasp Mummy. That's a bee."
And so on...
Apparently I am always wrong. Especially when it comes to health and safety issues... "Don't do that Lily, it's dangerous", will almost certainly be followed by "That's not dangerous Mummy, that's fine."

Multiply this by a gazillion and you will have a fair idea of a typical day in the life of Mama Brook.
