A portrait of each of my children once every week for 2016.
Kitty: Perched up on the fence at the sports club, and looking every inch of your six years. You’ve enjoyed every minute of your birthday celebrations this week, and we’ve loved watching your anticipation and enjoyment.
Elma: Hunting for pirate treasure and finding a Hobbit house instead; you had a wonderful time running around the very beautiful Whitlenge Gardens at your friend’s birthday party, and there was so much to look at I’m not at all surprised that you were more interested in knocking on the fairy doors, talking to the fish, and generally running around after your friends then in amassing a serious horde of pirate treasure. You do however have musical chairs nailed, only loosing in the final round to the birthday girl’s very much taller older brother, and thrilled that it meant you got a sweetie.
Pip: What can I say, other children try to open the raisins, or the sausage rolls, or the bagels, but you, you started to eat an orange pepper while your Daddy’s back was turned. Little monkey, you do make me laugh!
