Crocodile Taming on the Chickenpox Run

For the last 3 weeks there has been chickenpox going around at dagis. One by one (sometimes in batches of 3 or 4) Alice's classmates have fallen victim. 

We haven't been worried about her getting it - as I'm currently at home we don't have to make special working arrangements, and she'd probably get it more leniently at this age (even better if Emily got it at the same time!)

So, when we found out that one of Alice's best friends had got chickenpox we were round there like a flash. The instructions were clear: "Do as much hugging as you like and be generally infectious and infectable..."

We're currently awaiting the results.

Circus Act

Well Alice and friend are no stangers to play-acting, dressing-up and generally performing in one way or another. Whilst they were together, trying to be infectious they put on a circus routine.

It began in the usual manner, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome...". Then we were treated to various animals in a lion-tamer act (apart from lion) - there was crocodile, tiger, seal and shark taming.

Occasional intervention from the ring-master was required to save the audience....

Alice managed to show her mischievous side again. Whilst outside she wanted to help hosing down some garden furniture. Well, sometimes you have to learn by experience - and when the hose was handed over to Alice the people in the firing line were the ones without the necessary experience - and got a "little wet". "Ooops!" 

I, having seen this before, was at a safe distance!
