A Wish, A Kiss and A Dragon

A Wish, A Kiss and A Dragon sums up our week. It was my birthday last Sunday and I was lucky enough to get two bouquets. Bear loves flowers so I have them caged behind the fire guard! He had tried and tried to get hold of one so I took a rose from the vase, cut it short and gave it to him. He kissed it.

A Wish?

Bear always wants to get into water, or throw stones and sticks into it. This week he had his wish fulfilled so many times. Firstly in Cefn Onn Park and because of the rain there were loads of muddy puddles.

"Yes you may get your boots muddy."


"It's OK. Wellies are supposed to get wet and muddy"

"O Oh"

"It's OK honestly"

I just don't want my shiny lovely wellies getting muddy! So I'm off to find a stream.

Now that's the stream I wish I could play in

Mmm, it's OK for stones but I wish it was deeper...

That's better! Up to my knees

Then in the garden. Bear found a tray full of lovely clean rainwater. Perfect for a splash.

I know water comes out of here. I wish I could turn it on.

This is better! Clean water

A Dragon? 

We went to Caerphilly Castle to see the dragon. It's a smoke billowing dragon. Would we dare to meet the dragon? Was Bear brave enough? You can read more about our visit to see the dragon here.

I wish there was a dragon at the castle.

What's new this week?

Nanny! Nanny! Nanny! Yes he said it!
The postman delivered some letters and Grandad asked Bear to take them to Nanny in the kitchen. He ran in holding the letters saying Nanny! Nanny! Now I have a name. My wish fulfilled this week and it doesn't get better than this.

Have you had any wishes fulfilled this week? I'd love to know.

  1. Beautiful photos. Nothing better than splashing in muddy puddles x

    1. Thank you. He certainly can find them! I think he smells them from afar lol

  2. what as lovely week and some great outings for those little blue wellies. Water is such a magnet to children, splashing in it, trowing stones in and just watching it, it holds quite a spell over them, as do draggons! Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    1. He just hated getting them muddy! Loved splashing though
