And the years, too. Goodness. To see Rowan, sitting on a bench in the sun, such a proper little girl now, talking to herself and making her hands walk and dance and talk in her lap - who needs toys for creative play? Oh wow. She is just flying off and up and away from me, isn't she?
Jenna bought a geometry set in a charity shop on the way home from story time at the library this morning. She wanted it so badly she spent her own money on it. And couldn't wait to get home to play.
She really surprised me here, honestly. She figured out so many important rules of geometry on her own, just messing about. When I drew her a page full of triangles she sat and measured all the angles, adding the numbers up just to see what happened, I have never seen her add numbers larger than ten before (without serious pushing by me, anyhow)! ;) How many reminders do I need to simply TRUST?!
I sewed the buttons on the Spring Pebble. Talia wasn't terribly impressed that I wanted to try it on her in her afternoon colicky period. But I like the sweet little vest (and the miserable baby wearing it).
Today went quite fast (oh, apart from the crying times) and when I realised Martin was already overdue from work and I hadn't even started anything for tea it became a chips-for-tea kind of a day too. On the other hand:
We have been outdoors and in, busy and quiet; Jenna and Morgan put on a magic show, Jenna read Where the Wild Things Are and Blueberry Girl to Roo, Morgan played with her alphabet cards and a wall chart I made for her, Tali cried and nursed and smiled at her Grandma (a lot), and they all watched Peppa Pig until I thought I couldn't bear to hear the theme tune ONE more time. Yet another wondrously magical ordinary day.
