A couple of weekends ago, when we went into town, we noticed a sign up saying that Chase and Marshall from Paw Patrol were going to be there last week. We told Alfie and all week he has been so excited about it. Every morning he’s woken up this week, he’s asked is it Paw Patrol day!
On Saturday morning however, he was actually quite naughty and we almost didn’t take him. As it happened, I had to go to the opticians, so we did still go but even when we got there he was acting up and wanted to be picked up, put down, picked up again – you get the gist. We persevered though and I was so glad we did as his little face was a picture when he spotted them coming down the escalators.
Where we were stood, they actually walked straight past us and he was so excited. It’s not very often that I actually capture his natural smile. It’s quite funny really because when we ask him to smile he looks like Chandler Bing in the episode of friends when he can’t smile haha!
I have to be honest and say that I was actually very disappointed as there was only two characters and a man on stage who was reading some stories from Paw Patrol books. I thought there would have been much more to it. Alfie lost interest after about 10 minutes, so we decided to go for a coffee and a cake. The Paw Patrol guys were back on the stage a little later, so Michael took him back and he did seem more into it the second time around, so all was not lost.
I do find this age very hard as he’s going through a stage of being difficult and hard work, more than he’s well behaved, but I know that he’s not going to be little for long and whilst he is still this young, I really want to embrace seeing the world through his eyes and getting caught up in the magic and what better way to spend a Saturday than to see your favourite tv show characters 😉
