The Carnival of Vilanova is Here

Carnival count down started last week for the small children. At our younger one’s kindergarten, last Wednesday, the children were to wear non-matching socks, last Thursday, a red painted nose and last Friday, a bow tie. Today, Monday, both I and the kindergarten teachers did our best to make our two-year-old wear all the things at the same time, but he can be quite stubborn. Well, he wore the socks in the end - it could have been worse.

For the four-year-old, the carnival started today with the theme 'necklaces'. Only yesterday evening did we realise how few big necklaces my wife was prepared to lend him for a day of rough play at school. Rapidly we made some by ourselves with coloured penne.

Carnival time comes with a lot of fun but, at least for parents, it means a bit of extra work as well.
