|Lighting her own menorah|
|There was a joke but I forget what it was|
year was the first one she'd made. There will be arts and crafts menorot (pl) brought home for the next six years at least and I can't see us keeping all of them. I think this one may just disappear after a respectful interval of time.
DD was especially happy on the last night as I'd miscalculated the presents and there were actually three left instead of the usual one.
And then the most extraordinary and irritating thing happened. I sat down with her to play her new game and do her new puzzle (and eat her new Pezz sweets in a silly dispenser). She sat there throughout with one hand up to her ear, having a detailed telephone conversation with an imaginary friend. I was left silently passing her the puzzle pieces and pointing hints when she needed help. Largely, she just ignored me. So I got out the camera.
I don't know where she gets this from. I do have friends who meet you for coffee and then spend the whole of your precious time speaking to other people on their mobiles. I don't do this as I find it extremely rude behaviour from anyone who isn't a transplant surgeon or the Minister of Defense. In fact I hardly ever chat on the phone before DD is in bed asleep. Now I'm wondering if the staff at kindergarten are on the phone a lot.
If you're wondering what language she's speaking, it's some Hebrew with a lot of made-up Hebrew (i.e. Hebrew sounding made-up words).
