This morning Caitlyn was just feeling all down in the dumps and generally sad. Actually she's been a bit fussy for a few days now. I seriously considered keeping her home, but in the end thought it best to drop her off and ask the teachers to call me if she was really feeling unwell and then I would come and pick her up. I left a tearful Caitlyn with the promise I would be there earlier and that we would go and do something fun. When I picked Caitlyn up this afternoon she was all smiles and had a great day. I can't help wondering if Caitlyn is not perhaps starting to feel a little stressed and anxious about starting big school. I know she's ready. And she is excited. And she'll love it. But right now this is still a bit of an unknown that is happening soon.
Today Bianca decided to bake a cake. And not just any cake, but using a recipe that she made up all by herself. Her recipe was:
1 cup flour
A pinch salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 lid vanilla essence
And so she set about mixing it all together and even put it into the oven all by herself. Then when we took it out, she proudly said "I did it all by myself". And guess what, it actually tasted pretty good. It was a little bit on the dry side and didn't quite rise as much as it could've, but this was her very own recipe. Pretty good for an 8 year old!
And other than that I worked on my project and got to listen to some great songs!
Tomorrow morning will be an early physio appointment, dropping Caitlyn off at daycare and then Bianca and I will head off to Wellington Hospital. We plan to be there around 9 to do blood tests (and fingers crossed no clotted samples) and then at 10:30 we'll see Bianca's doctor. I'm expecting it to all be just routine. And hopefully if all goes according to plan we'll get to meet Bianca's camp companion. And then we'll come back home.
How was your day today? What do you have planned for tomorrow?
