i placed her treehouse on the windowsill and now she plays with it again.
May 7th - Last couple of weeks got into mama with baby role-playing.
May 6th - First beach visit this year. First real beach explore in our new area, as we only ever visited the popular (i.e, loud, brash) Paignton.
After starting to sleep in her own bed last Summer, she's been asking for me to sleep with her. I alternate nights, and crawl out after she's dropped off.
She's infiltrated everyone with her imaginary creature - a Boible (cat-like, faster than a leopard, can pick up houses, eats everything but allergic to stew, some have wings). Her creature is strong, powerful, fearless. A wonderful representation of what she wishes to/knows she can be?
Began trampoline-ing at local leisure centre, but now switched to gymnastics (very easy fun stuff).
I bought goggles to get her to start having her face wet and into the water, in the bath, as a prequel to swimming. She just hates having water on her face. So teeny baby steps still. Trying her in the shower with me so that she gets used to the water splashing her face.
I introduced her to a young version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - she adores it. Now we're reading the whole Narnia Chronicles, lent to us by my neighbour.
Last Thursday, she completed her first year of Steiner Kindergarten. A whole year of school! I find that the school calendar really makes time so prominent that it's difficult not to watch it fleeting.
She's 5 and 1/4 this month.
This Mercury retrograde (in my 2nd House - of tangible things and resources) has seen me lose money (super big as well as small), mysteriously lost an expensive purchase from the shop to my home and my daughter's bathing suit from the beach carpark to our home, had 2 unexpected and complicated bills.
