According to Babycentre, by the “end of this year”, my 5 yr old may “Test the limits of his independence — sometimes to the point of being rude”. In that case, it would appear that both my children are ahead of the curve, developmentally. So proud.
As parents, we get a little obsessed about how our kids are faring up to their peers. Who’s walking first? Who scored their first goal? Who can read better? Ultimately it doesn’t matter, but it doesn’t stop parents from playing the game… sometimes with conveniently selective memories. Each day my kids come back from school with stunning artwork, insightful essays, and completed worksheets that scream “geniuses in the making” (did I mention that my boys are almost 5 1/2yrs?). But what to do with it all?
So I bought the School Days Keepsake Book Kit by Little Doves - it makes a really lovely album with enough room for all those treasured school mementoes - from school reports, to drawings, to great school day quotes! And it should put an end to who did what when. It’s like the bible of school days.
£17.50 from Not on The High Street. It comes beautifully gift wrapped and makes a great gift.
