Happy Mother's Day ....
I love my home made cards every year, although this year Hettie really wanted to buy one so probably the last one from her. Isobel made me two, one at school and one at home. They both bought me a little pot with gerbera's in, which I had been told won't grow in this country. So I'll have to give it a go because I love gerbera's. Dh bought me the flowers when he did the food shop this morning and the two little pots they made at Brownies. They've got sweets in - yum. Hettie sat on Isobel's card before I opened it which caused a bit of a tantrum and Baby Born was sick on me (see below).
Had a good tidy through this morning as both nannies & grandads coming over for dinner. Everyone played scrabble (junior version) with Hettie after dinner and Isobel did a cartwheel show for us. It was her birthday party yesterday and so she had lots of new pressies to play with, including a new Baby Born outfit, and feeding equipment.
Now Baby Born I had resisted until Christmas. To put it politely I don't think any girl needs a doll that poops and wees, plenty of that when you get the real thing! The nappies cost more than real ones. Those of you familiar with this doll will know you mix up some powder with water to make the 'food'. Its not a healthy diet, ours hasn't pooped since Christmas and has severe constipation, despite continual feeding from Isobel. We'd run out of powder but she got some yesterday with a new bowl and spoon, still no poop. But when Baby came to give me my cards this morning she did sick most of it up over me when I sat her next to me. We may need to play doctors and nurses and operate if she doesn't go soon!
