Friday 16 December 2011: Big star
I started telling Bella the story of the Baby Jesus over dinner this evening. When I got to the bit about the manger she stopped me, said "I know daddy", and started singing a song she'd half learned at school about Bethlehem, stars and mangers - complete with descriptive hand and arm actions.
Never before have I had to try so hard to hold back laughter and tears at the same time.
That finally got me into the Christmas spirit, so we went into the garden and sprayed a star glittery gold.
Tree tomorrow, pantomime Sunday, then last few days of work, then cheese, beer, heartburn, etc.
