Thomas in Charge – Review and Competition.

Well, of course its not Thomas in Charge in our house but its the Boy and boy how he reins over this house. He is adorable of course but has the energy of a 3 year old (go figure) so peace and quiet time – or more accurately Baby Girl feeding time without her being bashed in the head with Buzz Lightyear, a book or other seemingly innocent household objects which can in fact be used as weapons – consists of TV, blanket and a transfixed Boy.

Cheeky little monkey

I was asked by T-Shirt Printing.Net to review a t-shirt for them and it really made me smile when it came and had a picture of a monkey on the front. We love monkeys (ooh ooh ee, aah aah aah is a regular cry in our house!) and the Boy pointed at it straight away and said “monkey”. I love to hear him point at animals and make the noises as this was one of the first things he learnt to say. After “dada” the next word was “gat” (cat) and shortly followed by “raaaaah” (lions roar).

It is a lovely quality t-shirt made from nice thick cotton and the logo is well made, certainly looks like it will withstand the wash very well. The only downside is the collar is quite tight but the Man prefers looser collars so probably a personal preference thing. T-Shirt Printing.Net offer bespoke printed T shirts and have a number of positive reviews on their website. Please check them out!
