Apparently I'm missing a crown.

He says that I’m missing my orange crown.

It’s not just Rafa having all the fun, Mum.  I’ve been getting extra long pony rides.

Brush, spit, rinse

Brush, brush, brush.

and spit.

Rinse. I don't know why Mum insists on brushing my teeth for me. I've got this routine down pat.

Papi and I have a mandarin ritual.

First, we discuss our strategy.

Then we peel 'em.

Next we eat 'em.

Then Papi pretends the whole routine is just because I love eating mandarins, but I know he loves our mandarin ritual too.

Guess where we found Papi?

October 13, 2011

Mum and I were busy preparing breakfast and when it was ready we called Papi and Lucy to the table – but Papi was no where to be seen!  He wasn’t playing online chess in the office.  He wasn’t watching CNN in the living room.  He wasn’t in the bathroom and he would have told us if he had gone out for a run…

He was fast asleep in my bed! Then I remembered he was reading stories to me there this morning and I must have left him there.

Learning how to lead

October 10, 2011

One of our favourite indoor family activities is having big dance parties in the living room just with the three of us.  When there’s a slow song Papi scoops me up, I put my head on his shoulder and he twirls me around.  Since Papi wasn’t here tonight when a slow song came on I scooped up Lucy, put her head on my shoulder and gave her a twirl but leading is harder than it looks!

The temperature switch

September 27, 2011

Fall officially started last Friday and overnight someone decided to flick the switch from hot to cold weather.

This is what I was wearing on Saturday when Papi was lifting me up to touch the sun.

But this morning, just three days later, I was layered up in winter woolies for the walk to the office. It was cold and dark!
