Once upon a time Little Miss couldn’t get enough of In the Night Garden. To be fair, it was one of the few things we let her watch on telly when she was younger. But in recent months she firstly developed an inexplicable fear of the Pinky Ponk! Whenever it innocently appeared on screen she suddenly started crying for us to turn it off. We still don’t know why. And secondly a certain cartoon pig has stolen her affections.
So it now is that most days, at some point, we’ll hear the words “more Peppa”. And at the moment I can cope with watching Peppa Pig on repeat (I know, I will eventually eat my words). Personally I find Peppa a darn sight more entertaining than Igglepiggle and his ultra-repetitive little gang. Especially the hapless Daddy Pig who, as my husband complains, is so often the butt of the jokes!
So, for now, I’m happy to indulge her love of all things pink and Peppa. A few weeks ago we baked Muddy Puddle cupcakes. Potty training is being ably assisted by the lure of bright pink Peppa Pig pants. And we also recently took her Peppa Pig ballerina toy on an outing to the park, which as you can see from the photos below everyone enjoyed – and ‘shhh!’, perhaps Mummy enjoyed it a bit more than a grown-up strictly should!
It was a dry day so no muddy puddles but Peppa had great fun… hope you like our little photo story!
