Mr 6 achieved his final "star" on his reward chart the other night, and so he got to choose a prize from our prize box. His treasure of choice was a ruler which contains a calculator on top... fitting as been caught 'borrowing' my calculator from my desk on numerous occasions (and failing to return it) - so now he has his own and he's chuffed.
Of course he took it to bed with him the first night... and then to school the next day to show his mates. But the thing about him having his own calculator is that he is now the KEEPER-OF-ALL-KNOWLEDGE... and he is quite pleased with his own wisdom.
Every day, several times a day, he says:
"Ask me a sum that you dont know the answer to!!"
Me: "hmmm - ok... 376 + 187"
Mr 6, with some serious concentration, plugs in the numbers... and then proudly reveals the answer:
He also just walks past and randomly says:
"Hey mummy, did you know that 23 + 12 equals 35??!!"
Just wait until he learns that if he types 5318008 and turns it upside down, he can write rude words on it ;)
First birthdays are always a momentous occasion - and what better way to celebrate than with a cake smash!!
Mum Stacey wanted to do some outdoor family shots as well as the studio cake smash, however little Layla-Rose ended up having a bit of a cold on the day - so we cut the session short and she came back the following week to complete outdoor portion of the session.
We did still manage to capture some gorgeous smiles with her pink, white and gold theme - big sister Lilly also loved sharing the cake and showing miss Layla how its done - aren't they adorable?
And then the following week it was big smiles all round as everyone was feeling better! We had fun exploring outside here at Tamborine, and capturing these special moments between sweet sisters and their lovely mum...
