Ava, My Favourite Family

The time when Ava was totally freaked out by the Gruffalo

Ava loves ‘The Gruffalo’ (who doesn’t?) so a few years ago, we thought it would be a good idea to take her to see him in ‘real life’. Ava and The Gruffalo

It turns out she liked the book, but the human in a seven foot costume? Not so much.

This was as close as we got before we feared she would never recover!

Run Jump Scrap!

    Oh bless 🙁 Must be a bit scary seeing that face for real!!! Harry was the same with Santa and shut his eyes the whole time. Great! xx

      Oh no that is such a shame but hopefully you got a funny picture at least?! Ava has haters or at least kept a safe distance from any dresses up characters since that day, but Thea LOVES them and always wants to hug them! I’m with Ava, they freak me out too! Xx

      Oh dear, I think we will be ok with Santa as he has a human face! But half of me wants another hilarious photo, is that bad?! Though the girls are nearly 5 and 2 and a half so think they will probably be ok! Xx
