- The Runaway Bunny - we have this in softcover but ML likes to crunch and rip out softcover book pages so we dont read those yet... he is not so interested in this book as every second page is just a black and white drawing and he can't yet appreciate the story
- Three Little Kittens - based on the nursery rhyme of three little kittens who lost their mittens, then found them in order to eat pie, which stained their mittens but then they washed them... ML seems interested
- Listening Time - this is a book to teach toddlers good behaviours, in this case how to listen; I really like it because it teaches parents good strategies, like: "Sit criss-cross-applesauce, hands on knees please!" and "Take a pretend key, zip it, lock it, put it in your pocket!" (to close the mouth; parents/teachers can make the zipping motion in order to remind kids to keep listening quietly), etc. I would be interested to see the others in the series like "Nap Time" and "Bye Bye Time"... oh ya, ML likes it too because of the nice illustrations
Outside ML ran around the Confederation Square area and was fascinated by a giant moose statue. We had fun kicking around the leaves in the park area, and then he chased a crow around. When we got home he was tired out from the excitement and went for a nice nap :-)
It was also 'Eid Al-adha last Friday and we went to the prayer at the mosque - lots of people there mashaAllah and it was nice to see everyone. ML was dressed in his special Moroccan outfit (I was happy it still fit him alhamdulillah!) and I wore the new abaya + shayla that my sister-in-law brought me from Oman plus Moroccan belga slippers.
We missed baby play ground today and yesterday but will try to make it on Friday. So far we have gone twice and ML enjoyed running around playing around the other kids; there are lots of things to play with there and they even have a "snack time" with apples, cheese, crackers and other things for all the kids... last time they had "baby num num" rice crackers which remind me of styrofoam but ML really liked them and was giving his "num num num.." of approval. I liked that they didn't crumble in has hand when he squeezed them.
All for now, tea + cake break is over and time to get back to work ❤
