When Babess & Fainjin go to bed, they usually take a while to settle down.  Sometimes they have bouncing competitions, sometimes Fainjin gives Babess dozens of books (she’s still in a cot; he’s in a bed and can escape).  Sometimes they strip off their pyjamas and pile them with their duvets and teddy bears on the floor, only to ask for them back in half-an-hour or so when they’re both sleepy and want to snuggle down.

Tonight, they sang.  It was very sweet and almost in tune, the Alphabet Song, over and over.  Babess is better at the tune, Fainjin knows all the letters, and between them they did quite well.

    So sweet. I love the between-kiddo interactions when they’re alone and relaxed.

      I love them too. Fainjin and Babess are so close, they’re a great little team. I have to admit I’m not keen on the bouncing competitions, though. There’s also a lovely, but entirely different, dynamic at work when their big sister is playing or singing with them. I’m so lucky!

    Awww so cute when that happens, although sometimes this mummy just wants her kids to sleep and only appreciates the cuteness later.
