Ah, such sweetness in this little (ish) one. A laugh that is delightful and pure, an openness and kindness that extends to all and a gentleness that holds him close and keeps him safe in a place where he is most happy. Happy Birthday beautiful one.
Poe's birthday started with dancing for joy that he was six and lots of patience as he waited with Peeba (my mum) until everyone else woke up. After a few little gifts we focused on sewing an octopus, creating jellyfish and making a treasure chest and 'mormaid' costume for Poe's underwater party.
The party was quite small with eleven children and it was absolutely delightful, so much ease, great times, wonder and fun. Dancing, laughing, hide-and-seek and marvelling at all the awesome costumes.
We were extremely blessed to not only have my mum and dad up but also some very, very, very special friends from Sydney; Lily, Saul, Jen and Rod. So special and wonderful.
Ilo as a cake eating 'mormaid'
Just after dinner their was more squeals of utter delight and disbelief as Poe yells "Annabel is at the door, Annabel is at the door", yes to complete a pretty perfect day, Poe's teacher Annabel dropped by to deliver this beautiful posey of flowers she picked especially for Poe, she came, she was shown a few
presents from the day and with a few cuddles, she left, pretty beautiful.
