I speak, of course, of the Princess, who loves nothing more than to partypartyparty long into the evening. Or early morning, as the case was last night.
Isn’t she a dear. I don’t know how she can be so chipper with so much broken sleep, but then I don’t really function on less than 6 consecutive hours, so it’ll forever be a mystery to me.
Of course, it’s easy to be happy in the arms of Pokado. Who could ask for a better big sister?
Speaking of Pokado, she turns 6 on Monday! She’s growing up so fast, and her gracefulness and sweetness increase with each passing day. She asked me to teach her to make pancakes last week, and that went down surprisingly well, considering the extra help we had!
Squeaky gave her input confidently, and by the end of the process she was a pro at identifying a ready-to-flip pancake. She can’t wait to be a little taller and help with the actual flipping. Until then, she’s all too happy to give everyone her opinions.
Another girl bonding moment happened this week in the form of nail polish. It’s a special occasion thing, and the fact that Pokado wanted to paint her nails is a special occasion. I’ve asked her about it off and on for over a year, but she’s been fairly stand-offish about the whole thing until recently.
We made time for it, picked our colors, and not only did Pokado do her own nails, she offered to help Squeaky with hers. Then they watched me do mine, and their little faces beamed as we showed each other our pretty colors.
Lastly, my author site is alive, the first children’s book is done, and the second one is well on its way! The query letter is finished. I just need to take the next step of actually sending it out. Meep!
