Well, I said it was going to get done every month so here it is getting done. I left it quite late as always, Mabel was poorly yesterday and my camera battery died so I have only managed to get these two photos with them all in the same frame this month. Mabel isn’t always so miserable/staring vacantly at scooby doo on the TV, but she was really suffering with a tummy ache and high temp bless her heart. I’d love to say that they also aren’t always in PJs/naked/scruffy looking, but that wouldn’t be quite as true unfortunately.
Mabel was really excited about Valentine’s day and we had plans to wear pretty dresses and make jam tarts, but sadly it wasn’t to be. We’ve decided to postpone our V day celebrations until she’s feeling 100% better, but there was still a lot of love going on yesterday between these three.
When Mabel was sad, Greta brought her her kindle and said ‘will this cheer you up Sissy?’.
Greta was so proud of Ernie riding his little trike around, she kept saying ‘Good boy baby, clever boy!’.
When I was giving Mabel cuddles, Ernie jumped ontop to cuddle us and say ‘ahh’ and of course give his biggest slobbery kisses.
When Ernie’s hugs and kisses got a bit too much for the poorly girl, Greta got him his building blocks and built a tower with him to distract him.
It’s not all lovely all of the time, Mabel didn’t really appreciate Greta’s bedtime greeting of ‘Goodnight Sassy Pants’… but days like yesterday remind me that they are good kids really, and they really do love each other. Something to hold onto when everyone is back to full health and pulling chunks of each other’s hair out and screaming ‘YOU ARE NOT MY FRIEND ANYMORE!!’
