One of my favourite parts of Father’s Day is the kids shirts that the department stores bring out each year. Yes, I admit I am one of *those* parents who buys cutesy shirts with cutesy phrases about how awesome Dad or Mum is. Mr 7 has 3 or 4 of them at the moment. Although as he has gotten older they have moved away from from cutesy phrases and into the superheroes.

Over the last 6 or so months I have started reading novels to Mr 7. A few years ago I started reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to him, but he just didn’t have the staying power to concentrate on a story with minimal pictures. He’s at the perfect age now though and we’ve started enjoying a great range of books.
Despite the studies outlining that homework wasn’t needed for primary school kids and the many friends who lamented the stress it brought, I still saw the positives. I liked being able to see the progress that his reading and writing was making throughout the year. However those feelings have slowly changed.
