We were DREADING the girls’ first dentist appointment this morning, as teeth really have been a struggle and we did not expect them to allow a doctor to put his or her fingers into their mouths. Actually, due in part to their love and fascination for Dr Ranj, they behaved like small celestial cherubs. they received a beautiful turquoise ring for their troubles. Thanks, Doctor!
The girls then rode the tram all the way to my work (during which time they lost their pretty rings…) so I could do some organising and they tired themselves out with a load of bouncing and climbing in the playground.
A good day.
How was yours?
