For Kai...

I do believe this is my girls' first love letter...to their dear friend Kai who was sick on Wednesday and missed class. Nola and Kira directed their photo shoot, chose their favourite picture and have instructed me to put it on their blog. My goodness, how times have changed.


Hi Kai, I love you Kai. I want to play with you all the time Kai. These flowers will help you feel better soon. I love you Kai. See you on Monday. From Nola and Kira xx

School Slippers

Yesterday we celebrated the girls' first day of Waldorf pre-school. The girls did great, but Eric and I were a nervous wreck.

I'm not sure if I made these slippers (here is the pattern) for the girls or for a mummy who needed to send her babes off surrounded by the comforts of home. I'm not sure if my story (that each little hand-stitch was a mummy hug) was for them or me.

I watched these sweet girls of mine, with slippers in tow, dance off into class and not look back. And I picked up hot, tired and very happy girls - who felt their mummy hugs all morning long.





Yes, it was good day at school.

Crafty Birds - Kid-made baby gift


Using fabric markers on plain burp cloths, the girls and boys made sweet gifts for baby Molly.

This is Nola's gift - a mummy with a baby inside.

Party Hats for Molly


To celebrate the birth of baby Molly, Willie and JT and Nola and Kira all decided weeks ago that she needed a birthday party. These 4 friends (all 3 years old) created the perfect celebration for their new little sister and friend.

Of course, I was delighted to sew felt party hats. The kids made cards and decorated burp cloths. We ate tiny cupcakes and sang happy birthday.

Welcome Molly!
