Thumbs Up



This is my small doing her version of her best-ever thumbs up. It’s this version because she thinks she does this REALLY well, whereas an actual thumbs up is apparently tough for a three year old to do.

She is doing a thumbs up because Kylie sent her a surprise package and while the small’s mother was bizzy with her own amazed jaw hitting the floor, the kid had beamed and donned her bag and whizzed off and declared she was even going to sleep in it!

The small and her hambag (because that's what a three year old’s handbag is) are inseparable. It contains treasures of significance, including fairy sparkles, half a dead beetle donated by her brother and a lolly wrapper salvaged from her sister’s birthday ‘do’.



Look, here’s another concentrated (cos it’s really quite tricky) Thumbs Up attempt:



And here’s that infinitely easier version:



Kylie, you’re all kinds of wonderful.



THANK YOU.

Aw, Kylie, what a sweetie she is! I love the hambag, it looks awesome, and perfectly adorable for the Little Miss.

How exciting to have a hambag filled with treasures. I had a bower bird child too - butterfly wings, shiny stones, bits of string tied into "really hard" knots and paper cut into the shape of dogs were always to be found in pockets and on bedroom floors.

I love that you have a collector of the beautiful and interesting too.
