Monkey see, monkey do
I had been thinking about what I should do for Kai's birthday and I finally felt he would be too young to remember or realise the significance of the party. Plus other than Thomas, what he really likes is to have all his family members gathered around and playing with him.
So I rallied both sides of the family together for an outing to the zoo^ on Saturday. It rained later in the morning, but he had fun.
After his nap, he opened his presents. We bought him a Duplo zoo set. While Terence cracked his brain to fix the pieces together, Kai was perfectly happy with the toys that came off his cake.
To our relief, there was 'integrative play' finally.
