Poor Brioni was cut across the tips of her fingers last night when Aisha demonstrated how a razor worked, but today she has been soaking up the extra attention that Aisha is giving her in recompense.

Brioni, 3yo, September 2009
Aisha hemmed Brioni in on three sides with towers of baskets. They were pretending that Brioni was in an ambulance. (All I could think of was the mess caused by the emptying of the baskets!)

Brioni is such a funny girl — imaginative and articulate beyond her age. For some of the time today, she pretended she was a mute schoolgirl — able to hear but only able to talk with her hands. (Just as well she wasn’t pretending to be deaf too!)

Later tonight, she enjoyed sharing some of her bright ideas with Aisha.
