Pictured above left with Jamie earlier this year is the wonderful Emma from his Little People Nursery.
Vanessa and I like Emma a lot, but Jamie likes her "a lot a lot."
A few months ago, he moved upstairs to "Tweenies" having previously been in "Toddler Two" and, hence, with Emma. And he missed her terribly.
He and we were therefore delighted a little while ago when Emma was transferred upstairs to join him.
As a result, he's been enjoying nursery more of late than ever before - and the reason why is plain.
That said, he still tends to have a mini-strop as I carry him up the road on a nursery day so I've taken to using Emma's name as bait to get him there. But when I did this earlier this morning, I got a bit of shock.
"Are you looking forward to seeing Emma?" I asked him as I teetered out the front door, weighed down by his three-stones-plus frame.
"Yes!" he replied. "I've got TWO mummies!"
I shared this remark with Vanessa as I trained it into work, and let's just say she's now planning a couple of extra "love shifts" this coming weekend.
