The sun shone and all was good in the world
Last week our niece turned 6. EE and RR had both been invited to a fairy party today. This event had been used as part of my negotiation skills since last week. There had been the confiscation of the fairy outfit, where it was just out of reach, visible in mummy and daddys' bedroom and had to be earnt back! Last night it made its way to EEs room but still out of reach. Anyhow both EE and RR looked very sweet in their fairy outfits. RRs outfit I had made for her 1st birthday and got it out again today with the hope that it would still fit, thankfully it did.
RR did really well surrounded by very energetic 6 and 3 year olds. She can hold her own. EE was the same height as some of the 5 year olds there and also was very relaxed and blended in easily with the big kids. It was really rewarding for H and myself to watch as we are both very shy.
H had his first and only day off in 7 days so it was awesome that the sun shone so brightly. We are both sick again. I have been sick since last Monday, poor H just inherited his illness yesterday. Over the illness tag team that seems to happen when you have little ones and especially when they start Preschool.
Hopefully this week will be a week of good news and funtimes. Thanks to Rose Red for your kind thoughts.
