Our Rosie turned 3 at the start of the year so, just over two weeks ago, she had her first day at our local Montessori kindy. (That's pre-school, non-NZ-speaking friends.)
Elliot was very proud to have his little sister there, and Rosie has - so far - settled in very well because she has his support.
In my true sentimental style, I wanted to get a photo of Rosie on her first day. Brand new kindy bag on her back, shoes on, ready to go. Underneath the same tree we took Elliot's photo nearly 2 years ago:
Little Missy decided to have a bit of fun with her face. I'm not quite sure which one to print out and display...
I just Could. Not. get her to smile properly! Instead she is making what she calls her 'Hippo Face.' Rosie loves hippos. Not exactly an animal whose noise or face is very easy to replicate for a child though, is it? "Mummy, what noise does a hippo make?", had me stumped for a little bit.
I think I'm going to go with either the top right or bottom right picture. At least they make me giggle!
