OK can we just pause for a second because I think these are my absolute favourite pictures of my two yet..gah I know I'm bias but..so much cute right?
When it comes to dressing my kids, you guys will know that it's one of my favourite parts of motherhood. From those tiny baby grows I bought all the way back when I was a 'mother to be' to their first outfits and the in-between. I love finding unusual prints, bright colours and fun designs for my children and I think I'm pretty lucky that they both up until recently have been happy for me to put them in whatever I like.
Recently however Wilf has shown a preference to the things he wants to wear. He's never particularly not wanted to wear something but he definitely has his favourite pieces and he gets excited when he finds particular clothing in the shops. Often the items of clothing that he wants to chose from his own collection are the ones that fit whatever character he wants to be that day. So somedays he'll be a bat or a skeleton or whatever else he can find in his drawers. Childrens clothes are so fun, I often wish I could wear some of his wardrobe!
I'm working with Vertbaudet on this post on the idea around children being able to express themselves and how important that is. At four and a half Wilf is really growing into his personality and it's so wonderful to see. His imagination is really coming alive and I am seeing influences from story books and the world around him to shape his play, his drawings and the way he wants to express himself.

Vertbaudet are asking parents to encourage their childs personality and design their own superhero alter ego using whatever you have around you at home. Wilf's outfit is made from an old carrier bag, a bit of cardboard from the recycling and a muslin of Mabli's! He calls himself robot boy (I think it's to do with the buttons on his sleeve).
What can your little superhero's power be? Can they fly? talk to animals? breath underwater (ok I'm just going off my top three superpower wishlist here ;)). All you need to do is submit your picture via an app on the Vertbaudet Facebook page or through the #vertbaudetheroes hashtag on Twitter and Instagram. The prize is £250 family trip for four for a them park of choice and £200 Vertbaudet vouchers! You can find more on their blog here.
I can't wait to see what outfits your kiddos come up with! I'd love to see the pics!
