Lovemydd - my 2nd and 3rd children were born at home, so we often get very confused questions about what hospitals have got to do with having babies.

Dude - My eldest was moon obsessed, when she was very little (12-18 months?) the only purpose she found in most books was to find the pages with moons and point them out. And we had to take her up to the roof of the building to say goodnight to the moon every night. Which was tricky when there was no moon... My youngest it was stars... only books about stars, or with lots of stars on the pages.

Aquinas - "the" was the hardest word for both of my older children to learn to read, even my HG+ girl who learned to read with such ease struggle with "the". It's funny that your little guy won't use it.
