“Boots! Boots!” – This evening when dressing Sam in his pyjamas he wanted to put his pirate wellies on and wear them to bed.
He then stayed up for hours playing with his trains. Behind the nursery door we could hear him crashing and banging away, and chattering to himself. When all was finally quiet I checked in on him before I headed to bed myself. I had to do a double take when the usual scene of destruction was missing. The room was spotless. I was stunned. Before climbing into bed with his three monkeys he had carefully put all his track, trains and wooden blocks away in their box and cleaned up after himself!
