Sophia is now 9, gasp……. I can't even believe it. Just this last weekend I was with a friend in the delivery room, the same room Sophia was born in. All I could think, was 9 years truly does fly by. I will say I am grateful for Sophia and her young spirit. S has a bit of an obsession with some Dutch mice, its all my fault so I can't blame the girl. I took her to ABC Carpet a year ago, and she immediately feel in love with the magic.
In the Children's section, there are displays of little mice with very human personas. There was no going back, Sophia found Matilda and the collection began. For Sophia's 9th birthday we decided to have a mouse party. We hosted 6 special friends and they each received a mouse and a habitat to create. Each party I create gets better and better as I get to really know my kids more, number 9 did not disappoint.
The Ninos had so much fun sharing in their imagination and creativity. I hope they hang onto these memories as they continue to grow and remember the joy that comes from wonder.
