Just a quick post today as Ethan is poorly and we're all a little low on sleep.. so I don't have long to type this up, or much energy!
Recently Ethan has got into Duplo. Whenever we visit his Grandparents (Pete's parents) he'd ask to play with their collection of Duplo (Pete's and his siblings Duplo). Ethan had a little of his own that he was given a couple of Christmases ago, but he hadn't shown much interest in it before. Suddenly though, he wanted to play with it. The trouble was, there wasn't really enough to make anything much. So... I found myself trawling eBay for some Duplo bargains. It's quite pricey brand new! (and I rather like the older stuff).
I've now bought him two lots of Duplo on eBay that in total have probably cost me around £10. Not really really cheap, but Duplo seems to hold it's value quite well. Ethan now has a lot more to play with and gets it out every single day. He loves making towers, castles, and high chairs (?!) most of all.
