March Magic

Being with the nieces makes the heart sing:

the apples of my eye!

Yesterday saw us make a drive into TO so that The Brother and SIL Ana could cash in their March Coupon of the Month.

bye, bye, guys! enjoy your shopping + dinner out!

Little E was in fine form; a tradition is that Aunti brings CD’s from the Waterloo Library. Little E perused the latest selection (one Wiggles CD is a standard inclusion).

sun visor indoors, in march? why not?! all the better to see you with, my dear!

(Little E is wearing my fave dress, of the moment, a gift from Grandma and Grandpa. I wish it came in size Adult!).

Unfortunately, Baby C was suffering with a runny nose and cough:

i have still to see c in less than good-natured mood - she is eternally good-humoured, this one

The next few hours passed delightfully in puruit of favourite pasttimes:


I love when the book choice is one of my favourites!…

two thumbs up for the fancy nancy series of picture books!

Playtime downstairs did not receive photo time; Fischer Price people, wooden food items and a riding hippo were involved, though.

Back upstairs, a visual treat!

elmo entertains while aunti preps dinner!


Baby C conked out at 6 pm – I hope she feels better soon!

Little E and I brought out the drawing materials. A new set that Dada brought from Finland!

our artsy efforts proudly on display!

All too soon The Parents returned, and it was off to bed for Little E:

braid-free and a silly face - who doesn't get a little oingo-boingo right before bed?!

Such a good afternoon and evening…can’t wait til next time!

    Your nieces are so cute! I spent Saturday with one of my nieces — she is hilarious and so sweet. I love spending time with her.

    Awww…they’re so cute. I love how much little kids love music. My nephews have really enjoyed the They Might Be Giants cds for kids…(they also like the Beatles!). Glad you had fun with them.

        Two nephews (the ones in the UK)…they’re 5 and 8. They Might Be Giants had some called…”Here come the abc’s” and
        “Here come the 123’s” that they liked.

    Looks like a fabulous time! They are so lucky to have you (and you to have them!). It’s so great being the aunt—what an opportunity to enrich their lives and yours too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for sharing your great visit ๐Ÿ™‚

      thanks, lisa! i know you understand that special auntie bond. i’m sure you agree that the niece (or nephew) relationship is just life-enriching! time with my nieces just makes me feel so centred, and reinforces what is important in life. hope you get to see m. again very soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
