Both the boys are at school and the house is eerily quiet. The only sound is the click-clicking of the boys solar powered wiggling flowers on the windowsill, a relaxing background sound like the ticking of a clock. The boys may not be here but they certainly leave their mark for the living room is dotted with toys. Hot Wheels Nitro Bot has made a reappearance downstairs, they’ve decorated the coffee table with My Little Pony Kinder Egg toys as well as a tub of felt tip pens and, of course, there is Lego on the floor.
Neither of my children like the dark very much. My eldest has a night light on through the entire night. However, my youngest prefers no lights on at all unless he needs to get up for the loo or because something’s frightened him. He’s a sensitive little thing. The other day he came to the top of the stairs crying because of strange noises. The strange noises were only his brother getting out of bed but, my youngest boy looked terrified and his face crumpled with tears as he told me about these noises. So I was glad to see he was carrying his night time buddy, his Lego Benny the Spaceman Torch Night Light.
