You must be the only one in the family who is excited by the colder weather… maybe it’s because you get to wear all your winter clothes again or perhaps you’re just excited because you know that winter means Christmas and then your Birthday! (which you have been planning all year) either way your enthusiasm is contagious not to mention your sweet snuggles to keep me warm make winter seem a lot more bearable. I am a bit light on photos this month due to the colder weather and limited hours of light… guess mummy will have to work out my flash!
One of my favourite things about living in the US is the opportunity to celebrate Halloween, something that wasn’t done in Australia when I was a kid although it is gaining popularity there now. The idea of neighbourhoods all getting together and kids running around the streets in costumes, like I had seen in the movies, always looked like so much fun. Unfortunately at our house no one goes trick or treating down our street as the houses are too far apart, but we still had fun going to see our immediate neighbours and those a few streets over where the houses are closer together, we also stopped by a park for a few photos. You were Captain America, Tate was Thor, Daddy was Iron Man and I got to be Catwoman. We had some fun playing our parts and getting some photos but it all ended in tears with Thor getting a bit carried away and clubbing you on the head with his mighty hammer, you tried really hard to pull yourself together as you did not want to miss out on the trick or treating. You are very reluctant to cry when you hurt yourself these days… remember monkey it’s ok to cry!
Daddy and I were very excited to get to come to observe at school this month, you try to tell us what you do at school but unfortunately we don’t always know what exactly it is that you have been doing all day…. It’s nice to get a little insight! This year you get to do a lot more group work and we got to observe you working with a partner… there are definitely some interesting group dynamics going on in a 3-6yr old classroom not to mention negotiation skills being developed!
Today was Tate’s Birthday and I’m so very proud of how well you coped with it being Tate’s day… you are certainly growing up. You helped him open his presents and were genuinely excited for him not to mention proud of him. He adores you so very much.
To my superpowered girl who, wants mac and cheese for dinner every night, is going to start karate when she’s a teenager and wants a power ranger and princess birthday party, I love you to the moon and back.
Love Mummy xoxoxo
