Into the new year 2012

Not been writing for so long...no excuse really...except that I am raising 2 girls with varied personalities and OMG what attitudes...not to mention the recent bouts of muscle sprains (Trip 1 skiing cancelled) followed by pneumonia(!) (Trip 2 Mexico cancelled) followed by Penicillin allergy (Trip 3 London almost cancelled) and several instances of UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) in between – I am so exhausted!! Here’s hoping for a healthy and happy 2012 to one and all:)

Bat Mitzvah The recent craze in our house is Kat’s invitation to a Bat Mitzvah – I have heard that it is the most important event for a Jewish family. We’ve never been to one (since it is celebrated when a girl turns 12 and now Kat’s friends are reaching this milestone slowly). I have no doubt that this is big deal for the family involved but in our house, this first Bat Mitzvah for Kat’s friend is such a big deal, I mean SUCH A BIG DEAL! We have had numerous discussions on the gift (Kat comes up with a gift idea almost every single day after some conversations with friends). A dress in white was specifically bought for this occasion and only recently have the golden ballet flats arrived. There were talks about getting hair done but I think Kat realised she was pushing me too far and she has forgotten this for now (I hope!)

At one point, Kat got so carried away with all the fun her friend was going to have, she asked me: “Mummy, can I have a Bat Mitzvah?”!! I almost fell off my chair...

Funny enough, Kit has not realised all this fuss (yet!) – once she figures out that Kat is going for something special, there will be confrontations and arguments about why her friends do not have Bat Mitzvahs yet (they’re only 5 year olds now!) and that IT IS NOT FAIR!!

Updates on the dress and shoes next...
