I recently found out that I had won a trip for two to Noma, the world's best restaurant in Copenhagen. We are still awaiting dates about when we'll be going (as they get fully booked for months and months in advance!) but one thing we have decided, is that we would love for 7 year old D to come with me.
We considered paying the additional cost and taking him with hubby and me as a third person (especially as Granny announced that she most definitely would not be prepared to look after all three children - which to be honest, I can understand given J's difficulties, but it made us realise that if she wasn't prepared to then no-one else would either) but for lots of reasons we decided that actually it would make the most amazing experience for him to come along in place of Daddy. That way J and T would not be unsettled by the experience of me being away as they can just be looked after by daddy.
Anyway, after that long intro, onto the funee...
We saw this fantastic suit jacket and shirt reduced in price and quickly snapped it up as it would make a perfect outfit for D for his special visit to Noma.
He tried it on at home later that day and as he admired himself in the mirror, commented, "I just need to go and measure myself now to see how much I have grown" and he ran off to find his height chart.
He seemed to think that because the smart clothes made him look like a grown-up that he would magically grow to be the height of a grown-up too!
Now I just need to find an outfit for me - eek!
