The garden was prepared
Ailen cakes were made
Party bags were sewn and filled
and the kids came, played and ate
and our oldest boy turned 5, and all of a sudden our little boy seems, well very old and grown up.
Duplo has been replaced by lego star wars in fact we are now surrounded by star wars. It's no longer Postman Pat or Bob the Builder being watched but Star Wars "A New Hope". I've been a stormtrooper, Princess Leia, I've even been allowed to play at being Darth Vader! It really feels like we are entering a new phrase with #1. And it's exciting, if not a little scary!
We've had a weekend of parties and cake, seeing family and friends, tigers and leopards,
But for me the highlight of our trip to the zoo was the meekats.
It wouldn't have surprised me in the slightest if one had turned around and said "simples"!
But unfortunately through it all #3 has being suffering with conjunctivitis, an upset stomach, and teething pains as her third tooth pokes through, we've had unsettled days, taken it in turns to pace the house in the middle of the night just holding her, praying that she'll settle and eventually have some sleep. So for my birthday next weekend I'm not hoping for a day out, not even a meal out just Mr D and myself but for a good nights sleep as I'm starting to feel my age!!
