Winter is here. Mr. Blue Eyes. He laughs a lot more now. He loves his Aunty Hubs and especially his Millz. Because he has a temperamental mood, it's taken nearly 4 months to find enough courage to take him to the grocery store without him having a melt-down. He was a good boy for the occasion and saved his melt-down for this afternoon with Nanny Mitch. Hub's has a 'camp' at her school next week for Matariki celebrations and an end of term activity. I know she'll enjoy it, but I'm still paranoid about who she sleeps next to and whether or not they have head lice or influenza. I wonder if she'll be singled out if I make her wear a swimming cap to bed. I'll make sure it's the same color as her sleeping bag ... for fashions sake. 9 days and the 2nd term of the school year is over.
