|Imitating Mummy putting her|
baby in the sling! ROFL
The girls had a school holiday today because they are going on a school-wide excursion tomorrow. It's been a long while since I've spent so much time with them on a weekday. I decided to lay off cooking and delve into an intense session of pretend-play with them. We played doctor and patient; hairdresser and customer, complete with mani/pedi services. The scarves I provided turned from a hospital blanket to a throw-away on the salon chair, followed by a make-shift halter-neck dress and then a hairdressing cape and finally a sarong sling for the Hello Kitty babies. There seems no end to the creativity of young imaginations!
Despite my illness and extreme tiredness, I'm glad I made the effort to join in their play. Although I sacrificed a whole bunch of my hair to the tugging of eager hands and my wrist and neck are sore from their over-enthusiastic administrations, the brilliant smiles on my daughters' faces made it all worthwhile.
Jayna had an additional opportunity to play the role of Elsa while the younger sister napped. She absolutely loved the costume I recently bought for her. Doesn't she look gorgeous? *wink*
