We survived! Or, tales from the front line

You might remember that Tom and I had offered to have our 2.5 year old niece for THREE nights over a very valuable weekend. Well, I am pleased to announce that it went fine! The weekend ended with all limbs in tact, it only took us a couple of days to get over the sleep deprivation and only a couple of cushions got covered in chocolate. A success, I’m sure you’ll agree.

So, the big question – what did we get up to?

The weekend was filled with painting …

What a cutie

Maya shows Tom how to make a paint butterfly









… some time in the park …

… playing Olympics (guess who won?) …

… and a LOT of face painting (featuring my pro face painting Mother-in-Law and a very generous/stupid Uncle and Aunt).

Pretty good, huh? There was also ‘blueberry-gate’, but we won’t talk about that. I think we’d even do it again – just not next weekend.
