I came into the room the other evening to find M’laddo holding court in the middle of the room. He’d arranged his selection of toys thus, in a large semi circle, and was sitting in the middle intently reading them a Bob the Builder story. He looked up to see what the interruption was, saw it was only me, and returned to story time.

I’m not a fan of the word but that was one of the cutest things in the history of things.
