The scones that Amie and Mama made this morning at 6 am. In the background some of the silver dinnerware Amie received as gifts from her family in India. While she was patting down the batter, she said “I’m a big girl. I’m doing a good job. I’m a good Mama”. I immediately forgave the mess of butter and flour.
Painting at 6 pm. We have phased out the plastics for food consumption, but those IKEA cups still do great service as paint containers. When we’re done, I simply stretch plastic wrap over them and seal them with a rubber band. Works like a charm.
In between we must have read at least 20 books, many of them twice, and took one nap, way too early in the day. We didn’t venture outside because Amie caught a cold. Hopefully we’ve contained it so we can visit Sinterklaas tomorrow.
She has been saying she wants to go. She will sit on Sinterklaas’ lap and tell him she’s been a good girl. I know what he will say (what I’ve instructed him to say): “You should eat your vegetables, tough”. Well, it’s worth a try! It will also be a great opportunity to catch up with our friends from Belgium.
Enjoy our Sundays, everyone!
