Finally after such a long wait Nora’s first wobbly tooth came out. It was carefully brushed and put in a glass of water at her bedside. But does the tooth fairy really exist?
Well, this morning we got the answer. The tooth fairy had visited us over night and carefully swapped the tooth for some gold coins. Allegedly Nora saw her from under the blanket: she was small and had blue wings. And the tooth fairy even told Nora that she was 8 years old. Just so you know …
Poor little Ella: 6 weeks of casts on both her feet. Why?
Because she is still tip-toe walking like a little ballerina. A habit hard to
break, so we had to take some more drastic measures…
The good news is that she can walk on the casts. With a pair
of big croc-shoes (toes and heel cut off) she is even running and climbing like
it’s perfectly normal. Miss Groovy shoes they call her at Childcare, and apart
from a few grumpy moments she is happy as ever!
Finally the whole family made it back to Europe. We had an absolute wonderful month in Sweden and Holland. The girls had a ball and Mum and Dad so happy to see friends and family again.
Below some pictures of part 1: Sweden. Do you recognize some of the characters?
