Zoo Trek

Today was a good day, even if the public transport was a bit of a malarky.

Woke up in the morning, got myself and Tao breakfast (weetbix with full cream milk, chopped strawberries and half a banana each) and switched the tv to ABC kids. Tao had a minor tantrum when he found out Josh had gone to walk the dog without him, but quickly got over it when he noted it wasn't getting much reaction from me and watched TV, not touching his breakfast.

I made egg and ham sandwiches to take to the zoo (two for me, one without crusts and cut up into four triangles for Tao), two bananas, and chopped up some cheese and carrot sticks. I even remembered to take the big bottle of water.

Changed Tao's nappy, dressed him, put Ruan on the potty where she did a big wee, put the dog out, got Sprat to hold the door for me and left.

Hurray for The Wiggles!

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Tao has discovered The Wiggles website. It was my fault, I decided to see if they were going to have any events in Perth anytime soon and he spotted me.

So now he's on "his" (ie Josh's old) laptop playing the various games they have littered about their site. So far he's played an instrument game which is a simple mouse over game, great for teaching tots hand eye coordination with a mouse. Next I put on the numbers game for him (he mouses over a number, it gets big, he clicks on it and one of the Wiggles reads out the number. Think he was trying to learn the numbers so he could play Wake Up Jeff which requires knowing what the numbers 1, 2 and 3 are.

Now he's currently clicking around Captain Feathersword's screen.

I need to get a smaller mouse for him.
