More Daisy…!

Upsy Daisy from In the Night Garden

Upsy Daisy from In the Night Garden

I think it would be fairly safe to say that Reuben and Joshua are currently mildly obsessed with two BBC CBeebies TV programmes at the moment: Balamory and In the Night Garden.

In fact, whenever they see a pad of paper and a pen they will pick up the pen and thrust it into my hand with the instruction “More Daisy!”

Upsy Daisy is a character on In the Night Garden. I’m getting quite good at drawing her, to be honest. Until I realised that Reuben and Joshua don’t really care about details.  As soon as I’ve drawn Daisy’s oval head and added some Medusa-like strands of hair Joshua will steal the pen back: “No! My!” and start to scribble over what I’ve just drawn.

Jane looked at my pad the other day and laughed.  “What on earth would a psychologist make of that picture?” she joked.

What indeed!

That’s a very crude depiction of Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy with erm… additions by Joshua (red, blue and green) and Reuben (black).

Igglepiggle looks more like a sad Panda king!

  1. In The Night Garden is AMAZING to watch when you are not well, same with The Magic Roundabout. Gives you the warm happy feelings. :) Also, as a psychologisteee, I wouldn’t worry too much about what they’d think. You are happy, the boys are happy and so is Jane so why worry! :D
