The Gallery: Yellow

My younger son loves yellow. It is his absolute favourite colour. And I love that it’s his favourite colour because it’s not boring or predictable. And it suits him. Because he’s got the sunniest personality. He’s the easiest of my children and his smile can light up a room.

We scour the earth looking for yellow clothes for him – Tshirts, hoodies, coats. He lost one yellow hoodie on holiday in Center Parcs and we had to travel to Bristol to get him a replacement.

Regular readers will know the pain caused by the loss of a yellow wrist band from McDonalds No other colour would do. It HAD to be yellow.

It’s his birthday soon. He reminded me that I would need to get yellow balloons ready. He doesn’t need numbers and lots of colour. He just needs yellow.

His birthday last year. The ‘non-yellow’ stuff came from other people.

My car is yellow. It is scratched and dented. I’m not the best driver. But it is my pride and joy. I’ve had it a long time. Specifically I got it precisely four weeks before my lovely boy came into the world.

Is this why he likes yellow so much?!

Can you see my beautiful boy in that massive 36 week bump?!

  2. Yes I’m sure it’s a hereditary love! Must be the same reason little girls like pink so much… I for one attempt to dress mine is varied shades but no doubt it’ll end up a dominant colour as I love it too! My car is silver… Not so much fun really πŸ™ lol xx

  5. That is so lovely and what a fantastic car!! I love yellow ad actually as I was looking for Gallery inspiration last night I was thinking that so many of the boy’s t shirts have been yellow over the years. It is a great colour!

  6. The “30” balloons? Does that mean the yellow car was a gift for your 30th? Great gift! I haven’t even got a license – LOL.

  8. Thank you very much for your lovely comments πŸ™‚
    I like the idea that the car has made him like yellow so much πŸ™‚
    Can’t believe you would have a phobia of yellow cars, Kitchenmechanic!
    That is a coincidence, Suzanne! I’m sure the day will come when the Gallery theme isn’t written exactly for me, but I’ve had a good run these last few weeks!
    My son’s disposition is fantastic, Lesley. He’s such a delight to be around.
    Why am I not surprised your sons had yellow Tshirts too, Nikki? We seem to choose most things the same!
    Yes, it was my birthday present, but we still had the loan for five years!

  12. I don’t actually know if Spud has a favourite colour. I suspect it will change daily but after reading your post, I will definitely ask him in the morning. Yellow is a lovely cheerful colour and reading this made me smile πŸ™‚

  14. Wonderful blog, SarahMummy! I think the reason your son loves yellow would be the fact that you had a yellow car a month before you had him. πŸ˜€ Maybe when he’s old enough, you could pass it down to him like a family heirloom. Better have it well-maintained, then! ^.~

  15. Thanks very much, really appreciate that! I do like to think he loves it because of my car. Much as he loves yellow, he doesn’t want the car. My daughter does though, so I’ve got to look after it for her, not that I’ve done a great job so far! I’ve had it nearly 10 years, another 10 years until she can dirve it (as long as they don’t change the law or it will be longer!).
