I can’t believe my little girl is going to be 6 next week. She’s turning into a proper little grown up these days but it’s not all bad !!!! The older she gets the more able she is to get involved in making her own decisions and organising her self a little bit more. And with this comes ‘slow’ opportunities a plenty. Take her party for example, my daughter is very keen to help organise her birthday party this year, so I set her the task of composing and designing her birthday invitations and she loved it. She sat at her daddy’s desk for ages, beautifully composing and writing and decorating her invites. Bless her. She’s moving onto her party bags next. Although I do draw the line at her making her own birthday cake, (that is definitely slow mum territory that one) although come to think of it, baking IS a great slowie……….!!!!!!!
