|Whisking up cupcakes for daycare|
|telling me who each cupcake is for...|
This morning we had a bit of a situation on our hands. As I was dressing Luke, Kate came in holding a pair of crisp white leggings and asked if she could please wear them to daycare as she couldn't find a pair in her daycare drawer.
I told her to go look for her older white leggings, I was sure they were in the drawer. Kate burst into tears. With tears streaming down her cheeks, she came back into the room with the correct pair of leggings. "I don't want to wear these ones" she sobbed to me. Being an adult, I had no idea what the problem was - they were both white leggings right?!
After more tears and coaxing (and finally, firmly telling her she must wear the older ones to daycare) I managed to get out of her what the problem was - the older leggings had the number 3 on them....and the newer leggings clearly state a proud number 4 on the tag! No way could she wear number 3, she is a big 4 year old now!! I melted....she was in such a state over this, it was quite cute how she had thought the whole thing through.

A big cuddle, a bit of explaining and assuring that mummy certainly does not wear the number 30 clothes, and Jaimee still wears lots of number 4 clothes.....and Kate was able to put on the older leggings without fear of suddenly turning back into a little 3 year old.
Now, If only the weather report is completely wrong so that we can have her party tomorrow at the park rather then host 15 preschoolers in my house.....all will be right with the world!
