I took this photo of Marcel on holiday and really like it a lot. We'd been out in the forest collecting wild mushrooms, which he seemed to be enjoying immensely but once he caught sight of this frog, all he wanted was to take it home and keep it. It was nice to see how much pleasure he could get from a slimy, loveless creature, instead of the more common pre-teenage stroppiness we sometimes get at the moment! He is so desperate for a pet and yet Charlotte seems to hate all pets with a passion, unfortunately. I guess we'll need to find a solution.
