As Tadpole is now at nursery school, he suddenly has a whole host of new friends he sees every day, and now that Christmas is fast approaching, the cards have slowly started to trickle in too. So, for the first time, Tadpole is sending cards to people from himself.
I had hoped that, although he can’t yet write his own name just yet, he might at least want to write an “X” in each card, but in the end he decided his role was a supervisory one, and personally made sure each envelope had a chocolate coin tucked inside. He also personally selected a jar of homemade jam for each of his three teachers, so he’s looking forward to handing them over too.
We’ll be doing lots of festive activities over the next week or two – Tadpole has his first Christmas concert performance tomorrow, we still have paper chains to make, and those snowflakes won’t stick themselves in the window – they need little fingers to smooth them down!
