Following this baffling experience we had a lovely day. Penny my sister and her boyfriend Craig came for lunch. Mila visited us for the weekend.
She didn't dress up this time but as always it was a lot of fun having a six year old in the house. Friday night she went to the theatre to watch a ballet production with Jess. Jess' friend Kiruna was in the show and invited her to watch. Knowing how much Mila enjoys ballet, I phoned my sister and asked her if she could bring Mila. After the theatre it was really late and Mila was exhausted, I did not bath her but put her straight into her PJs. To remind her aunty Viv that she is now a big girl she sighed when I put her lovely soft fluffy dressing gown on.
"I don't like zis dressing gown." (She still sounds German when she speaks)''
"Why it is so lovely and soft."
"It has Tigger on it, Tigger is for babies, I am a big girl now."
Later when we told Jess about how Mila feels about the dressing gown.
"I still love Tigger, I suppose I haven't grown up yet can I have your dressing gown?"
"Psshttt, silly there is no way you would fit in it."
"Are you saying I am fat?"
Mila did not dignify this with an answer simply a shake of the head at her crazy cousin.
Mila and I spent some time on the trampoline pretending it was a boat and the surrounds was an ocean. Mila caught some very large fish which I had to carry to the kitchen.
It was quite a lovely day not quite summer but rather sunny. Mila decided it was warm enough to swim. We said that she could only paddle on the step with her water wings on. There was no way that if she slipped we were going into the pool after her. She had a lot of fun splashing Mei and Jess. In typical 6 year old fashion even though she was turning blue she was not happy when she was told that she should stop swimming before she becomes an ice pop.
