I'm going to the zoo

Hi All,

On Thursday Mum and I went to Healesville Sanctuary, or as I like to call it - the bush zoo.

I got to feed a kangaroo! He ate some carrot right off my hand. I saw a wombat (Papa's favourite), a platypus, some koalas, snakes, emus and other things. I couldn't find any tigers or elephants.

We had a lot of fun except for when it was time to go home. I didn't like that bit so much.

That's all for now,

My exciting trip

Hi All,

On Saturday we had a family excursion to the city which was so much fun.

First we went to the train station:

We waited for a while and then realised that there was bus replacement services running that meant it would add an extra 30 minutes onto our journey so instead we got back in the car and drove most of the way to the city.

Then we waited for the tram:

When we got into the city we went down some laneways:

Then we stopped for a coffee:

Then we went for lunch (we had dumplings if you're curious):

Then I made sure we caught the right tram back to our car:

It was so much fun! And I had a big sleep when we got home.

That's all for now,

Hi All,

Today I went to the pool. I haven't been to the pool in a VERY long time. My mum is good at lots of things but she is not good at taking me to the pool on a regular basis. I love it a lot and hope that she takes me more often from now on. Anyway I had a great time.

I have a couple of responsibilities at home. When we come inside mum says to me, "What's your responsibility?" and I yell, "Put my shoes behind my door!!" That is my responsibility - to put my shoes away.

Now I have a new responsibility - to set the table. Mum gives me the placemats and the cutlery and I put them on the table. Then I get a sticker. (I don't have to do it in my undies like in the photo below but it was warm today and I didn't really want to put clothes on).

That's all for now,

Hi All,

While playing hospital the other day Dr Mummy was taking my details for her paperwork. Our conversation went like this:

Dr Mummy: What is your full name?
Me: Roman Ezekiel Young
Dr Mummy: What is your mummy's name?
Me: Mummy Young
Dr Mummy: What is your daddy's name?
Me: Nathan Young
Dr Mummy: How old are you?
Me: 4
Dr Mummy: Really?
Me: OK, 3.
Dr Mummy: What is your address?
Me (shocked): I don't wear a dress. I'm a BOY!

Dr Mummy obviously needs some more practice if she wants to be a good doctor.

That's all for now,

Hi All,

For my birthday Aunty Leanne and Uncle Tim gave me a doctor's kit. I LOVE it. All the time I go up to mum and say, "Mum, I'm feeling really sick." This is code for I want to play doctors.

I like to be sick more than I like to be the doctor. The last couple of days we've had a hospital in my bedroom with boxes for all my sick teddies. I tell mum (who is the doctor) what is wrong with them all. Today they ate cat food and dog food which is bad because they are teddies.

Bye for now,

Hi All,

Here are some things that keep me busy:

Sick me

Hi All,

I've had a little cold for the last week. Nothing serious. Until today.

I did something very weird. I fell asleep on daddy's lap.

Daddy took me to my bed and I had a little nap. When I woke up my temperature was 40 degrees. This made me sad because we were going to go to a friend's house this afternoon. Mum told me I couldn't go because I was sick. I kept telling her, "I'm not sick. Can I go now?"

My eyes are crying and my body is all hot. But I get to have icypoles so it's not too bad.

Bye for now,

Hi All,

Do you remember a little while ago I told you that sometimes I make up stories?

Well, yesterday I told my mum that I jumped onto the stove, into the saucepan and burnt my teeth. She seemed sceptical but I think she may have bought it.

But I'm not the only one who makes up stories - this morning, my dad told me that I fell out of bed last night for the first time. He must be making this up though because I don't remember this at all. Surely if I fell out of bed I would remember!!

That's all for now,

Hi All,

For those who don't know, I've always been a very good sleeper.

Mum and dad trained me very well. I used to go to bed almost all the time without a fuss, sleep through the night and very rarely cried out for mum or dad. You may notice that I've written that previous sentence in past tense because... things have changed...

A couple of weeks ago I started to play some games at bed time ( really fun games). After I'd been put to bed I would hop up and came out of my bedroom. I thought it was very funny. Mum or dad would walk me back to my bedroom. And then we'd play again. And again. And again.

Then sometimes I would wake up at really funny times like 2am. Very funny.

Also I started to get up really early in the morning. Also VERY funny.

Mum and dad had a talk and decided that maybe I was getting too much sleep so they decided that it was time to drop my day time sleep. Mum had hoped this day would never come.

So now I don't have to have a day time sleep. I can stay up all day. But a funny thing has happened. I miss my day time sleep. So most days I take my pillows off my bed, crawl in and have a little sleep. Or I'll just hop in bed and hang out for a while.

Some days I don't have a sleep and that's OK too.

But this seems to have fixed the problems because I'm going to bed without a fuss and although I have a night terror most nights I don't call out just because I'm bored. I still get up early otherwise my parents would just be too spoilt.

That's all for now,
