I've had my coffee and time is slipping away.
It's late Saturday morning and we rush to get ourselves playdate ready. We've been invited to picnic in the park with some friends. Excitedly, Gabriella runs to her wardrobe and searches for a dress worthy of the beautiful weather forecasted for the day ahead. Pulling out a fabulous little ilovegorgeous number she's owned since last year. I can see her heart has decided. After slipping the dress over her head she runs to find a bag to house a small selection of toys. She returns empty handed. I know her, no bag she owns is feeling right for today.
Without saying a word, I have it covered. I have a plan.
It was love at first sight.
We are all ready. Now it's time for a quick dash to M&S on the way. Gabriella wants scones with jam, crusty bread with butter and every fruit she can find. I sneakily walk through the shopping centre and edge towards Zara. They look happy. They fight to press the button to the lift. We reach the basement and the doors open. Gabriella runs over to her section whilst Lucia and I trail behind. Mummy 'I love it', 'can I have it?'
'Yes.' Now lets go and picnic.
I'd seen the bag the day before and knew she would head straight for it. It felt good to know my daughter so well.
