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.
I haven’t linked up with Kirsty for a few weeks but when I saw that this week was a list prompt I knew that I had to get in on the action. Lists are my absolute favourite. I love making lists. This week the prompt is: 10 Things I believe!

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.
Today Mr 6 becomes Mr 7! I realised last week that I didn’t actually do an interview with him last year to see how his answers had changed. It’s been great to see how his interests change and that he still has similar best friends.
