Natty: Our star of the week!

There are some weeks when our children astonish us with new milestones and achievements that all seem to tumble out of them at once. It's as if they've been working on them all for a while and then suddenly, booom, they crack it.

I'm convinced that Natty has had a cognitive burst post tonsil and adenoid surgery. I like to think its all that fabulous oxygen whooshing around her body all night while she sleeps uninterrupted!

Our little 6 year old star has bowled us all over recently with her amazing artwork and handwriting. So here's the bragging rights evidence:


Natty received the Star of the Week Award for writing a 2 page long story. 
It took 3 weeks and lots of support, but it was all her own work.


Then we entered a Christmas card competition. 
I provided the sponge and paint and this is what she created, including drawing the antlers.


And my absolute favourite is her drawing of Willy Wonka as part of the Roahl Dahl topic at school. You can see he's dancing.


Natty's comment was, "I'm very very proud of Natty."

And so you should be darling, so you should be.

  2. These are wonderful, Hayley I think your allowed to brag about this, in fact I think that it's compulsory that you do, it's a by product of over brimming with pride.
