She made it.
Miss E survived the first 5 years.
There were times I didn't think she would!
But she did.
And can I say, she has blossomed
into a beautiful, loving, kind friend, daughter & sister.
I miss my wee girl, but I'm looking forward to the 'big' girl stage.
She was rather spoilt
(as should every child be on their birthdays)
& loved each & every present.
Especially the hand made.
The pig was better received than I ever imagined.
Even the big kid Mr X loves it.
Of course the favourite was the nightie she requested.
I tricked her & told her I hadn't 'bought' her a nightie.
Expecting a grumble & whinge, instead I got a mature
"That's ok Mummy, maybe for my 6th b'day".
Excuse me but what happened to my child?
She grew up all of a sudden...
The look on her face was priceless when she opened up
to discover a 'handmade' nightie.
"You tricked me" was all she said with a grin.
Look at that face!
A high tea party was had with special friends.
I have never seen anything so adorable.
Miss E was head of the table & presented with her very own crown.
Everyone left high on sugar in fairy dresses with fun & giggles.
A rainbow butterfly birthday cake was requested.
As per usual, Mr D made the cake.
He scratched his head about how to make it,
until I showed him the layered cake!
Miss E was politely disappointed
there was no rainbow butterfly cake.
(Once again a mature response!)
The sugared butterfly's on top didn't quite cut it apparently.
However, when it came time to cut the cake,
a big grin spread across her tiny face followed with
"You tricked me daddy".
Aren't we awful!!
So now I'll leave you with Miss Piggy in action.
In the throws of child birth, via cesarean section!
After a hard & long birth those piglets deserved a suckle.
Here they are with they're farm yard friends.
Just an idea of scale for you to understand the size of this sow.
& here she is exhausted after a days play at kinder.
(Yes she was taken along for show & tell)
There wasn't much room for Miss E in the bed!
