What she looks like (according to a 3 year old)

21 Nov

“Daniel, do you have any friends that are girls at your daycare?” Hannah (5) asked Daniel (3).

“Charlie is my friend, ” he told her.

“Charlie is a boy, buddy.” I told him, knowing there is a little boy named Charlie at his daycare.

“No, there’s a girl Charlie too.” Daniel said in a duh-Mommy-I’m-not-stupid  tone of voice.

“What does girl Charlie look like?” Hannah asked him.

He thought about it for a couple seconds. “Uh, she wears girl shirts.”

“But what does girl Charlie look like?” Hannah asked again, clearly unimpressed with the description only a little boy could give.

He thought about it for a couple more seconds. “She has a nose, like me!” He said proudly.

“What colour are her eyes?” Hannah asked, changing tactics.

“Um….Mama, what colour are girl Charlie’s eyes?” He asked me.

“I don’t know buddy, I didn’t even know there was a girl Charlie at your daycare.”

“Yeah, but what colour are her eyes, Mama?” He asked me again because obviously moms should know everything.

So girl Charlie wears girl shirts and has a nose. Thank you  Daniel for those insightful observations.

Hannah turns 5

6 Jul

Somehow, it seems like Hannah was born yesterday, but at the same time, it seems like I’ve known her my whole life. I vividly remember the day she was born, and having my very first skin to skin cuddle.

And now she’s 5. FIVE!!!!!! I can’t believe it. She has been planning her party for months. It was her idea to have a gymnastics party at the YMCA (where I go to the gym and she does gymnastics). It was her idea that it would be rainbow themed. Except we couldn’t find any rainbow invitations or cups or bowls or anything else really, so no one knew it was a rainbow party except Hannah. It looked more like a Punky Brewster, nothing matches sort of party. Not that kids these days have any idea who Punky Brewster is.

The paper cups didn’t match the bowls, or the napkins or the party bags. Some had chevron patterns, some different coloured polka dots, others stripes. But Hannah picked them all and she liked them, so who cares. Certainly not me and my mis-matched socks.

She picked out the trinkets for the party bags (she wanted more lollies in there, but I would only let her put a few M&M’s and a lollypop in each), as well as the little toys for pass the parcel, because you know, she’s a big girl now.

There just happened to be a Day out with Thomas on her birthday, so we drove over an hour away in the morning, had a 50 minute ride on a steam train pulled by a character from Thomas (I think it was Duck), then drove back home, had a quick lunch, and then it was party time.

This photo was accidentally taken before I had it framed properly, but she is looking down in the one that shows Thomas’ full funnel.

After the party, Hannah’s best friend Violet (and her mum) came over for a sleepover. We thought maybe after all the running around, the girls would be tired enough to actually go to sleep at bedtime, but we were mistaken. We put them to bed at Hannah and Daniel’s usual time of 6:30. Despite the girls being loud, Daniel was out by 6:35, but the girls carried on until nearly 9pm. It is the first time that they have actually reached the sleep stage during a sleep over without having to be separated though, so I guess that’s progress.
