So the other day, J and I were reading a book and I challenged him to find aeroplanes to match the ones in the book. It didn’t take too long! He knows the names of most of them and constantly impresses me with his knowledge- at 3 years old! There are SO MANY AEROPLANES in this house!
It was inevitable, really, considering his Papa is an aircraft engineer for NZ’s main carrier, and Daddy has been a pilot, flight instructor, and air traffic controller, and soon hopes to start building a full-size fibre-glass Canard sorta like THIS.
“What shall we build, J?” I often ask him when we get out the duplo. Hmmm.. I’m sure that even you won’t be surprised by the answer!
And mama does her best to keep up with his mean skills…
…and I was SO proud of this creation until he came up to me with two grey pieces and said “Mama, here you go. You forgot the engines.” LOL. FAIL. My kid is too clever!
So yeah, it’s not just by chance that aeroplanes are in the name of this blog. They are a very real part of every day life in this household!
What is popular in your house? Trucks? Dolls? Diggers? Rockets? I would love to hear what your kids love!
A mama who will eventually learn the names of all the aircraft…
