When the Class Teddy Comes to Stay

If you follow me on Facebook (and if you aren’t why on earth not!) you might have seen that this weekend we brought home the class teddy.

Meet Louis.  Louis the Lobster.

Yes, this weekend was our turn to tout around the class teddy, take photos and stick them in the book.  Louis has been home with everyone in the class, we are one of the last to bring him home, which is kind of fitting given that it’s the Big Ones last week.  Which means Louis the Lobster has had a lot of adventures.  You know the class teddy adventures?  Luckily for us there have been no Disney World trips, or fancy restaurants.  Just a lot of normal everyday kid stuff.  So we did our normal, everyday kid stuff.

But the weekend our class teddy, Louis the Lobster, came home we had an extraordinary day planned. A day without the boys.  A day at one of the bubbliest brunches in Dubai.  Quaffing champagne.  Sampling some of Louis’ friends.  So when we asked Louis the Lobster if he wanted his class teddy adventures with the boys and our wonderful babysitter, or to blow off a little steam you can guess which one he chose…..

When the Class Teddy came to stay…

After his benign first day, soft play, meeting friends, eating pizza, reading stories, Louis the Lobster got a good nights sleep ready for the mayhem of the next day.

And mayhem there was.

He met some under the sea friends, on ice….

He sampled some bubbles, Bollinger, naturally….

He got his PARTY on….

Things got a little messier and he got silly mixing drinks….

Discovering a love of gin…..

Thinking he was invincible, and athletic, performing drinking gymnastics….

Then the morning rolls around.  A full day back in his role of the class teddy to have his special class teddy adventures with the Big One, but first a hangover cure….

A whole day, going on a choo choo train, shopping, lunch, a birthday party.  Well after all that someone needed a jacuzzi……

    And how many of these went back in his diary I wonder???
    Here’s to many more happy years photographing the class mascot. (Trust me by about year 3, clean out of ideas now, might have to hope we get a lobster next time and steal some of these!)
