Going gardening style:
She absolutely insisted that the river (stream? creek? trickle?) was dangerous and she needed her life jacket on before she went in.
She didn't want to get her (wet) bathers wet in the rain...
It's all in the accessories:
"They're upside down honey."
"No they're not."
My brother really isn't one of those bores who talk all the way through a dinner...
I was horrified when I saw that not only was Amy aiming for toplessness again but that she was corrupting the sweetest little girl whom we had just met!
piece de resistance:
I love this picture. The girls were copying K who was topless and chopping wood (cropped out as I was asked not to include half naked K pics. The fan mail gets too much, yeah?) The trousers were a year too small, the shorts were part of a jinbei outfit and she just thought she was rocking this outfit.
Happy 5th birthday big girl. I think you've let most of your birthday resolutions slide already but then 'I'm going to always listen to mummy, pack up everything, not get grumpy and not wait till I'm busting to go to the toilet' was kind of ambitious. I love that you are so cuddly and kissy and squeezy and hand holdy and sighy. Even though it drives me crazy a lot of the time I love that you are so unphased by what those around you are doing and just do your own thing. You make me laugh with your little madamisms 'I'm going to let daddy get me dressed today' 'Amy, you forgot your bag!' 'You can get it today, Mummy. I don't mind.' You are so sweet to all the littler kids at kinder and that you meet around and yet when there's a group of bigger kids you're all big girl cool and confident, too.
You're always dishing out advice to anyone on how to do anything and tell people you're going to work when you come to English class.
Love you big girl and here's to a fabulously fun and fashionable future!
