Excited Girls

We had an impromptu party at Nanny’s house a couple of days before we came home. It was pretty damn exciting for the little girls.

And a little overwhelming as well. Petra told me that she would have preferred fewer aunts and grannies at the party, and just cousins instead. She’s not big on crowds of adults – she finds them a bit noisy and hard to keep up with. And that makes sense to me – all the large loud people, all those half-comprehended conversations, the sudden bursts of hilarity, have to be difficult to deal with when you’re a tired not-quite-four-year-old. Petra loves hanging out with her extended family, and is finding our place in Wellington a bit less busy than she’d like, but she likes her gatherings intimate and fairly quiet.
