Benny has been potty trained for quite a while now (he started on his 2nd birthday, completely self lead). However, he has been struggling a bit with going to the loo by himself, finding pulling down trousers, tights and pants a bit tricky. This has meant that I have had to drop everything 6 or 7 times an hour to take him to the loo. So I decided the dude needed a wardrobe revamp. I found these great trousers online in the sale. I am so delighted with them. They are winter trousers, reversible with a lovely cotton print and lined with corduroy. They have a pocket on each side and are beautifully made.
I got 4 pairs; monkeys, turtles, bugs and lady birds. I felt it was a good investment as he can get them on and off himself and also they will do for Joa in a few years time. I also went to our local drapers (I'd love to take some pictures of this place, it's like a time warp) and got him pants in a size too large, which again he can manage by himself. As the trousers are thick and warm I feel we can manage without tights and if it's very cold I'll put some leg warmers on him. So now, he can go to the toilet 'all by myself'... and I may get a hot cup of coffee!
While I was out I scored this bargain from the Spillers Lane Children's Project. A charity shop that sells only toys and books, the proceeds going to a Children's project in India. This pram is a gorgeous vintage one, it's large and sturdy and cost a mere 5 euro! It's funny because I was just saying at playgroup the day before I would love to get a good pram for the kids as they have wrecked their buggies pushing each other around in them.
Good day all round.
