Why I love blogs (well, one of the reasons)
There’s not much that a fifth child ‘needs’ for his first birthday, but I had my heart set on a wooden ride-on toy for indoors. There are so many nice ones. Unfortunately, they are all designed for millionaire babies. Fortunately, blogland (and my hand hubby) came to the rescue again. Specifically, Joel, from Made by Joel. I’ve enjoyed his blog for a long time (if you are a parent of small children you must check out his simple strategies for occupying children!).
The first one turned out a little too big for Marcus, so Phil made a second one. As you can see, even Daddy enjoys them. We have just one non-negotiable rule: whoever bumps furniture or the walls is banned for the rest of the day. The kids are all quickly learning to be very careful drivers!
