I haven't really felt like blogging recently, but now I have a brief burst of energy so I'll go for it!
Recently you have been even more fond of order than ever before, and that is saying something. You have a very clear idea in your head of how things are supposed to be, or how they are supposed to happen, and have clear expectations that we "get" this immediately, even if it is a complete change to what used to happen...oh...say, yesterday morning. Sometimes, words fail you and you can only manage an extremely disappointed "ohhhh" or, when very frustrated, yell "nooooooo" really loudly.
As I think I mentioned before, in general, if there is even a whiff of a suspicion that you are being manipulated into doing something, or just plain told to do something, then you balk like nobodies business. Sally at the Childrens House said she's seeing this side of you now (took a whole term!), which is a sign you are really comfortable there.
Your imaginary play is more and more elaborate, and the interest in music, fire and piers lives on. You told me yesterday that you'd like your bedroom to be painted black, as that was the colour of burnt things, and you liked burnt things.

In other news, you've got chicken pox, but it doesn't seem to be bothering you too much at the moment. It does mean we have to stay away from people though.
Also, I'll be going part-time in work really soon - 2 days in London, and then one day at home until 3, so I can mind you after your Childrens House. As you go to the Childrens House 3 days, we won't really miss out on seeing each other at all then, hooray!
And here are some more photos
