A little bee with a little bee
This week kids in Denmark dress up for Fastelavn. I made a bee costume for Elinor. She is still at an age where I can decide what she dress up as and I like that :)
But a bee costume was the obvious choice because ever since Elinor was born - for every single day and night her whole life - she has had a little bee by her side! I made the stuffed bee, called Bibi (you know BeeBee), before she was born and it goes with her everywhere. In the second and the last photograph you see Bibi when Elinor was just a few days old - in the first photo you see her between E's legs. Bibi is a very worn out bee after two years of intens love.
I know it would have been smarter to just have bought a stuffed animal so we could have had a whole arsenal of the same one, just waiting for one to be lost or worn out, but I love Bibi too and we make sure to look out for her. Soon she will be too fragile to go everywhere and she will need to stay in bed all day. I will have to explain to E how it is, when bees get old.
(E is playing with Toca hair salon on my phone -such a cool app)
▶ Lykke: Tak!
▶ Dessa: I don't really mind when the balance tips to chaos either - but D does, so I try my best to keep the balance. Tomorrow I will show you how much the balance has tippet right now: It is pure chaos :)
▶ Sarah: Yep, that would be really good. I often think of the house as a first prototype -want to build new versions of it -build in storage, build in tv, wheels, so you could have storage behind the house! Bookshelves all along the top of the walls --- I need a workshop and a lot of wood!
