Once Upon A Star

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Dear Olive,
We picked out five photos representing the three years of your life. We baked a sugar free spelt banana cake, and topped it with whipped cream and berries. You chose a bunch of flowers. You wore a birthday cape and a crown. And laid out stars to walk on, with the rest of the class watching. You sat on the birthday throne. And BEAMED. I felt the emotion too. The story about the angels taking you by the hand and leading you over the stars to us, your family, gave me tears.

And so did the flowers you picked out. Yellow tulips. They were my Mums favourites.

I'm falling more and more in love with your preschool every week.

Happy Birthday Little Olive :) Such a special day and what a way to spend it!

Beautiful gesture from the preschool! Sunny's preschool is canning the whole birthday celebration as of next year :( Something I'm very sad about because it truly is the one day they shine amongst their friends and it is all about them in their little lives... Here's hoping they reconsider!

Hats off to the Steiner birthday celebration! It truly is something special, the cape, the throne and the story. It makes you stop and really think about how amazing it is to have given birth.
I cried at both Otto's and Coco's and am crying now reading Olives and remembering theirs again!
Too many tears for a Monday morning!!!

Good tears though :) xx

How gorgeous are those waldorf celebrations!?

Hugo celebrated his last early childhood spring festival yesterday with flower crown and cape, singing about spring around a maypole. Gosh it made me cry.

It's such a wonderful gift you are giving Olive - and as parents we are lucky to have the opportunity to reflect on our little ones in such a magic setting. Priceless.
