Riley’s Play Date

Riley’s Mom & Dad were having an afternoon outing and had roped in Amelie and Tiffany to babysit Riley.  When best friends Amelie and Tiffany accepted the job they hadn’t realised that Riley had a pre-arranged play date with two friends.

Riley was playing really nicely with Milly and Tish when Amelie decided that the three friends could share an Easter egg while they were playing outdoors (less mess inside the house…).  She bought the one that was wrapped in shiny blue paper and placed the pieces in front of Riley.

Well, as soon as the chocolate was put down Milly decided it was hers, all hers.  She made a grab for it and Riley put her arm out to try and stop her taking it.   Milly saw this as an infringement and started to lash out at Riley.

Tiffany knelt down and stopped the girls and explained why they shouldn’t be fighting each other, then she removed the egg until their behaviour was better.  Milly then went into a sulk and turned her back on Riley, who made the most of the opportunity to give a yank on Milly’s ponytail!

All this time Tish had been as good as gold, and just carried on playing on her own.  Riley said sorry to Amelie, and that was enough for Amelie to pick her up and give her a cuddle.  When Milly saw this, she said sorry to Tiffany who knew what the little minx was up to, but found her beguiling.

Suffice to say that they were all friends again by the time Riley’s parents returned home.

Father Christmas

Father Christmas turned up with a sackful of gifts for the children over the festive period.  Some of the younger ones were a bit overwhelmed but the older kids thought it was great fun.  More pictures on:

Seichan & Aiko Babysit

Lottie was feeling too poorly to go to ‘Lola’s Daycare’ so her Mommy asked Seichan if she could look after her.  Seichan agreed immediately as she loved having her niece to play with, and when Aiko found out she too stayed home to babysit Lottie.

They tried to tempt her to eat but she couldn’t manage it, though she did drink plenty of fluids.  She had a nap during the afternoon and when she woke up Sachi (cousin of Aiko & Seichan) came round to visit, bringing her niece Tish to play with Lottie.  Poor Lottie wasn’t really well enough to play but she did enjoy having story time.

Two more Kish toddlers came today:  Riley and Anjali.  These girls are just so cute and they happily played with Milly, Lottie and Tish.

Lola’s Daycare

It has been a busy few days with lots happening, not least that Lola has finally opened her day-care nursery.  She has enlisted the help of Peri on a temporary basis who has got a manner with babies and toddlers, they love her.

Kyra and Libby were allowed to go in to help too and they loved being able to play with the little ones.  Tish and Lottie are to die for – they are so cute!  I could take photographs of them all day. 

Lola has five babies and two pre-school children at the moment, but believes that once word gets round about the nursery she will get more customers.

They all seemed to be happy enough while I was there, apart from Lottie tripping over her own feet, and a cuddle from Peri soon sorted that out.
