School holidays are fast approaching. I look forward to spending long, lazy mornings with Bubbles once again.
Till, then, I work on daily 'invitations' made ready for her when she returns home from school each day. Usually, I set out art materials, a forgotten about puzzle or toy, or some books. I've also done elaborate stuff like laying out a 'scene' from a recent book we've read using things we already have, or really simple ones like re-arranging a few things in her room.
Thinking about the word 'invitation' recently made me do this instead:
A real invitation. To a picnic. From Mickey :)
She squealed, she really did. I then watched her chatter with Mickey and take little bites and sips of the laid out picnic.
When she spied me peeking at them, she excitedly asked me to join them too. It was an invitation I could not refuse!
