27 January 2011

Yesterday was awesome. Ashleigh and I went to have breakfast at Voila! Then we went to Canal Walk. It was very successful and we managed to get everything, well almost to get her ready for varsity. Still need to get a duvet inner and then we are all set.

She wil be 18 in just a 14 days, I cannot believe how quickly the years have gone. Suddenly I am seeing a beautiful butterfly starting to emerge. It is so tough too know I have to let her fly when she is delicate and soft ~ she feels like any almost 18 year old, she cannot wait to get wheels to have the freedom to come and go as she pleases. We asked her what she would like to do for her 18th and she told her dad "Drinks at La Med but no adults please you must have a table on the other side" Gasp splatter!!!! I think Andre almost fell off his chair. And then the following day we can have lunch just the family at Wakame please dad!

I am up early as Andre and I are one of 35 couples going to the Espesso studio in Seapoint dressed "Larger than life" to try and win VIP experience at the J & B Met. So if you are awake watch SABC 3 5.30 - 7.30 and hold thumbs. Must dash got to get ready!

  1. Nothing quite as tough as letting children go when they grow up... or knowing how to parent them. Also blogged about it a few days ago. We should have coffee and swop notes sometime.
    Whats that saying about the two things you can give children - roots and wings? Somet things are just easier said than done! :)
