My stuffed toys. When I get angry I sit with them on my bed, and start playing with them, and forget that I was angry.

He goes to work, then plays with us or reads to us

I read at quiet time, I like to draw and play with the boys, and play with my figures.  Sometimes we go to places like National Trusts and we have adventures.

Mr J's seventh birthday interview can be read here, and his sixth is here.

These birthday interviews were an idea from Lauren, who blogs at Sparkling Adventures.  They're a great way of watching the changes that take place with our kids, as well as noting the things that remain the same.
