Fishing

22/06/2014

my company More often than not of late, Kitty’s request for a bedtime story has not been one of her many beloved and slightly battered picture books. She’ll sit up in bed with bright eyes expecting a treat, and ask for “a story from your head”.

Check This Out Oddly enough my powers of imaginary storytelling only work when two little girls are snuggled down in bed and the curtains closed but from then on I’m happy to scrape together an adventure for Princess Kitty and Princess Elma, with a bit of Snow White and Goldilocks thrown in for good measure. I tell them the stories of the days they were born, of cute things they did when really tiny, and the adventures H and I had before they were born. H tells tales from his childhood, or the adventures of Ethel the pink monkey and Kitty chips in with a few suggestions of her own.

forex kontor city It’s a bit of fun, and seems somehow so very representative of Kitty right now. Over the last few months her ability to imagine has really taken off and I’m loving watching what her mind can create.

And because it’s us and because the girls seemed to enjoy it the bucket sat there for the rest of the week.

http://weki.com.np/?timer=opzioni-binarie-con-iw-bank&44a=45 Kitty decided that it needed a duck or two and added a few handfuls of bath toys at some point which Elma likes to lift in and out and that seemed to be as far as they’d taken it, until I turned around from hanging out the laundry to discover that they’d got the plastic golf clubs and were vigorously sploshing them up and down in the water.

    They are so sweet. Don’t you just love a child’s imagination that makes water and a few toys a fun adventure.

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:26 pm

      Totally – in some ways it’s eyeopening about what as an adult I’ve forgotten how to do that must have come so naturally as a child.

  • Seychellesmama 22/06/2014 at 1:49 pm

    Ahhh I love that they were fishing!!! That’s so sweet! It’s so amazing the imagination of the child, they see a game or an adventure in everything. I look forward to seeing my little Arthur’s imagination develop and shine through 🙂 x

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:45 pm

      It’s so funny how different it is to an adult imagination too – even an imaginative adult’s imagination – we just see things from a completely different perspective!

  • Caroline (Becoming a SAHM) 22/06/2014 at 2:21 pm

    Aww what a pair of cuties! I love the imagination stage and can’t wait for Monkey to get there, it’s just incredible the things they come up with! Loving the sounds of all the bedtime stories too, very sweet 🙂 xx #theordinarymoments

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:44 pm

      Aww thank you 🙂

  • Sara (@mumturnedmom) 22/06/2014 at 2:23 pm

    Love this! The photos of them playing in the bucket are wonderful. I just adore how imaginative children are, it’s a fabulous thing to see develop, and a lot of fun to lay along too x #TheOrdinaryMoments

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:43 pm

      Thank you – and yes, so true (and so much fun) – although I’m afraid I didn’t get to do any fishing – apparently that is just for Kitty and Elmas!

  • Eline @ Pasta & Patchwork 22/06/2014 at 2:46 pm

    Fabulous. My little boy is still very much at the copying stage, but every now and then there’s some pretend play creeping in. I love it, it’s such a window into his mind and personality. It must be amazing to watch Kitty play!

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:42 pm

      Oh you’re going to love it when it comes – it’s just so much fun to watch!

  • Katie @mummydaddyme 22/06/2014 at 2:52 pm

    Oh Carie I do love your little story type posts. And of course they were fishing- silly Mummy! I love Mads imagination at the moment, it is utterly compelling and down right cute. It’s a trait I wish they would never lose- that innocence that comes with it as well.

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:42 pm

      It’s a massive eye opener into what’s in the front of their minds too isn’t it – I can quite often tell what Kitty has been learning about at nursery (either from her pre-school staff or from the other children) by listening in on her make believe!

  • Jess @ Along Came Cherry 22/06/2014 at 7:45 pm

    That is so unbelievably cute! x

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:40 pm

      I know I’m not supposed to say “I know!!” because they’re my children and that verges on super speshul snowflake territory but I Know!! x

  • PottyMouthedMummy 22/06/2014 at 8:14 pm

    Oh this is gorgeous, just adore their little imaginations!!! Lovely outfits too!! xx

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:38 pm

      Thank you – the outfits are just what they happened to be wearing that afternoon, but they do look very summery don’t they!

  • Polly | Polly's Little World 22/06/2014 at 9:02 pm

    Moments like that are so precious xx

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:38 pm

      Thank you – I think so 🙂

  • Jenny 22/06/2014 at 9:45 pm

    This is adorable! I love love kids imaginations. There can think up anything I swear and be so creative. How cute! Love their outfits too. So summery. #ordinarymoments

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:37 pm

      Thank you – I’m really loving seeing Kitty’s creativity come to the fore as she gets just that little bit older!

  • Merlinda Little (@pixiedusk) 23/06/2014 at 10:05 am

    Endless possibilities when you have a kids imagination =) #OrdinaryMoments

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:36 pm

      So true!!

  • Kerri-Ann @kahargreaves 23/06/2014 at 10:58 am

    Such a beautiful post, don’t you just love a child’s imagination and how it continues to surprise you. I love the make up stories too x

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 9:35 pm

      It’s interesting – I find I’m getting better with practice at making something up, and for all my love of books, it’s the storytelling that I really love!

  • Mummy Muncher 23/06/2014 at 10:09 pm

    That is super sweet! I love how they can turn anything into a game #ordinarymoments

    • Carie 23/06/2014 at 10:23 pm

      It’s a skill I think I need to re-learn!!
