I set up the magnetic letters on top of a baking tray and demonstrated to Adam how he could put the baking tray upside down and they would still ‘stick’. He laughed the first time I did it – although seemed to want to keep testing the theory by pushing the letters off the tray when it was upside down.
He made up his own activity by trying to fit them all back into the box. This proved quite tricky but he kept persevering.
The problem came when he tried to take them out again. It involved shaking the box several times.
I showed Adam his named canvas from Day 51 and stuck the letters to it as it’s also magnetic. He took all of the magnets off the canvas and placed them back into the baking tray before putting them into the box.
We then met up with our friends Kate and Max for a trip to the Sealife Centre.
Adam was wearing his backpack reins and was in the mood where he wanted to go in the opposite direction – even when we let him. He has a calling in life though – to become a penguin Whisperer! Wherever Adam went the penguins would follow him.
It was a busy afternoon of ball pool fun, a 4 mile walk whilst the boys slept in their pushchairs and a bit of shopping.
Unfortunately when we got home Adam was projectile vomiting all evening. Why is my son always poorly!
