Rose: Mummy, I’m a superhero.
Me: Awesome! What’s your special power?
Me: What does Fairygalaba do?
Rose: I can make other people feel very itchy whenever I want.
Rose just spent half an hour talking to her friend Oliver in France. Half an hour! You can usually only get one or two things out of her on the phone, but she was positively garrulous tonight with Oliver. She’s getting to be such a big girl! I wish I could’ve transcribed the conversation, but she was holding on to me with a fierce grip, she was that excited and nervous.
I remember that at one point Oliver asked her about “school” (what we call day care) and she said, “I’m going really well at school at the moment.”
I’ve also added some photos of Rose’s 4th birthday party with our other parents group friends. We hired a play centre. It was a rainy day, so the kids pulled their fancy clothes off and ran around in the rain in the nude. It was adorable! (I only uploaded internet-safe pictures).
