Sisters in November

It really is too late in the year for ice-cream. But when you're coastside in Cornwall, somehow an ice-cream is a must, even if its freezing cold and a little on the windswept side.

Half term was a lovely chance for these girlies to spend some quality time together. And while Ava's now well and truly back into the swing of school, the first few days she kept asking to stay home to play with Heidi. It sort of breaks my heart a little that we're having these conversations when she's only just three. A big part of me wants to just say "OK, just stay home with us," but I know her Pre-school has been so good for her, and I don't want her to miss out. It's all good preparation for full-time school next year. One of the downsides of being a summer born baby.

She's always happy walking through the school gate anyway.

But back to Cornwall and ice-cream.

Heidi devoured her strawberry baby cone within a couple of minutes, and then looked on wishfully as Ava slowly but steadily worked through her small ice-cream... and then there was one of those moments where your heart melts a little bit as a mother, and Ava leaned across and shared her ice-cream...

... and yes, she did that hilarious thing that most parents do when they're feeding their children. She opened her little mouth wide too as Heidi tucked in!

Two little sisters in November.
