"There is no friend as loyal as a book."

It's been a few weeks since my last 'waiting in the car post' so I was definitely due one. Mrs M needed to be somewhere so once we had dropped her off I parked up and got in the back to entertain Opeie while we waited. I usually take the iPad with me but it was dead from our journey last night (which I will be writing about later), so I was pleased to find some books in the side door. 

Opeie had been clutching two Miffy magnets which he had borrowed from the fridge and decided to take out for an adventure.

The magnets were the same size as the characters in the books so we read them and made up our own bits to include the Miffy magnets in the story. Lucky Miffy got to celebrate Christmas with Peppa and her family, play peek a boo in the night garden and go sledging with Boris Bear. 

I love how happy children get when you make effort and really take the time to interact with them.

Thankfully we were not waiting to long and after reading each of the books twice (changing the story of course), Mrs M was back and we headed home. So the conclusion to our activity is, Waiting in the car = a very happy Opeie, who's favourite part I think was the excitement over Miffy in the book and his magnet wearing the same dress!
