The advantage of having a 3 year old is that you can legitimately start the build up to Christmas as soon as everything starts to appear in the shops, my wife and I love this time of year and this is why we chose to get married during the Christmas period, so any excuse to kick things of early is good with us. Our decorations will go up tomorrow to be up in time for our Wedding Anniversary and today we had a festive singalong in the car. We bought last year a CD that was one of these with your child’s name on it so when our LG asked for Jingle Bells on the iPod in the car today she was over the moon at hearing her name at the beginning of the song we had a lovely singalong, and I impressed her with knowing all the Christmas songs (thanks mum) and the words to “Let it go” (thanks YouTube). On the way home she fell asleep so my wife and I had an enjoyable singalong to some of the our favourite songs including Ben Harper, Ben E King and Eric Carmen. Great car journeys alleviating the boredom and pain.
