This year Ben and Chloe were very late writing their Christmas lists – so much so that we actually only wrote them on Christmas Eve and left them out with the mince pie and milk on the mantelpiece! Luckily neither of them wrote anything on their list that they hadn’t already told me or Father Christmas when they had visited him earlier in the month!
Ben wrote his list completely independently bar asking me which “ear” sound he should use in “Dear” (which made his teacher Mummy very proud).
I was hugely impressed with both his spelling and handwriting, he’s come on in leaps and bounds this past year! Next job is to get him to sit down and write his thank you letters!
