It has been a happy hatchling week over here.
Monday, was the traditional dancing,
Shrove Tuesday, or pancake day, mostly an excuse for small people to eat spoonfuls of nutella,
and today, Valentine's day.
Hatchlings love holidays, no matter how minor.
Hence, the teddy bears, are they not the most adorable lollies?
After a lunch of heart shaped sandwiches, and heart shaped fruit, I gave each hatchling a teddy.
Hatchling no 4 and no5 are sentimental.
I hadn't expected that.
As the girls ate the ears off their bears, the boys kissed and cuddled their own.
Long after the girls' bears were gone, the boys tenderly carried their bears around and whispered sweet nothings to them.
One bear is sat tucked up in hatchling no4s bed.
Hell hath no furry like a hatchling whose teddy may be woken from his nap.
I've been told off twice!
The other bear is in the driver seat of the big yellow dump truck, wearing a little bob the builder hat.
Hatchingly no5 is cooing, 'Mine teddy, mine teddy.' As he pushes the dump truck around in circles.
They are happy, and that in turn makes me happy.
I hope you are having a happy week too.
