Birthdays and Ladybirds

Miss Olivia turned four this week and had her party last Sunday.  A very fine time was had by all.  Olivia and her 4-year-old cronies consumed vast amounts of junk food, played games, and raced around.  Petra ate grapes and veges, played happily with the wee book that was her pass-the-parcel treasure, and wandered along behind the bigger kids watching all the hi jinks.  The girls raided Olivia's wardrobe and emerged wearing her fairy dresses (she has several).  Petra got to wear a ladybird costume that was too small for everyone else.

    What a coincidence. My sister-in-law was nuts about the(we call it: lady bug– theme for my nephew, for years. Petra looks cute in it.

    Lady birds (or bugs) are a nice way to do dress ups without all the pink fairy paraphernalia. They're a bit more gender neutral so good for boys. Childhood stuff is appallingly gender stereotyped. Pink, pink, pink for girls and manly trucks and tools for boys. Which doesn't give much scope for individuality.
