Make a wish

Elizabeth has just discovered how much fun it is to make a wish on fluffy dandelion seeds, spreading the invasive weed far and wide.


Me: What did you wish for?
Elizabeth: Coins.
That’s a bit materialistic for a 3-year-old, isn’t it?
Elizabeth: Chocolate coins.
Phew. She’s more interested in chocolate coins than metal ones. That’s how it should be.

Daniel is still taking a ridiculous assortment of toys to bed. He recently added a basketball and ukulele to the mix:

  13. plastic hammer
  14. sea turtle

Children are so funny.

  1. You have such wonderful children Rachel and Ben! Is there any room in the bed for Daniel? Love the photos of Elizabeth at ballet – she will be a star.

  2. That is a beautiful photo of Rachel. I think there’s just enough room left for Freud on Daniel’s bed. Maybe he needs a double-decker bed so he can put all his stuff in one bunk while he sleeps in the other. 🙂 Just a thought….
