Well, for reasons we'll get into in a moment, it's been a while. Let's start with the positive, shall we?

6!

Happy birthday to our darling daughter Erin, who turned 6 on the 5th, which means that for the first and only time in her life she gets to be twice the age of her younger brother. Next year, of course, she’ll be exactly half as old as her youngest older brother, and the year after that she’ll be exactly half the age of her eldest older brother. Who says math can’t be fun? And, of course, if she’s on a train that leaves at exactly 3 o’clock and travels south at an average of 60 kilometres per hour…...

Having dealt with the carnage created by Connor’s party the previous week, Luscious and I wisely decided to outsource Erin’s party to Dinosaur Jim’s, a playgym warehouse in Joondalup (6 months of begging by said daughter having had nothing to do with the decision….). And a bloody good time was had by all: cake and sweeties-fuelled games and playing, more Bratz/Barbie/fairy/girly merchandising than any pink-stained girlie could dream of, and all the parents sitting sedately in a corner watching someone else deal with it all :)

Next year, we’re just going to kill each kid a week before their birthday…..


Six years old, and beautiful

Some pictures speak for themselves

Oh my! It _has_ been a while!

She looks _so_ grown up! (Also, in that first photo, deceptively demure... the second looks more believable:-) )

Glad she had a happy birthday:-)

I'd put in a totally believable photo of her, but we don't actually have one of her turning into a giant monster and levelling the surrounding area... :))

Well of course not - hard to capture those from great heights as one is flung across the area :)

Great photos & outsourcing has its place!
