My curly haired monkey turned two last week.
It coincided with the day we moved into our new house along with a full day at work but we still managed to take the time to celebrate with her.
When the kids were exploring their new house for the very first time I quickly placed her present in the front yard and draped a blanket over it before calling her outside.
Obviously she was immediately curious and with her sister Ariya ran to investigate.
It was amazing watching the difference between Marisah and Ariya at similar ages. When we were in NZ our neighbours gave Ariya a bike when she was two and a half. She tried a few times to ride it but quickly lost interest and said she couldn’t do it. When we moved to Thailand and she turned three we bought her a bike. She had a love hate affair with it and really didn’t start riding it for at least a few months afterwards.
Marisah on the other hand with just two minutes of practise was scaring the pants of me by almost cycling out onto the road at the front of the house!
That evening we took her out to celebrate with pizza and ice cream (more pics to come in part 2.)
