Opa’s schattebout is 5

When you’re a little child, turning five is a major event.  Toddler years are history, from now on life begins :).

For my granddaughter Devica Esha that moment  arrived a few days ago. She loved it.

She had been allowed to choose five ( of course five) of her best friends. So an extraordinary  energetic bunch of youngsters of multiple cultural background (one boy with Cuban parents, another boy of Indonesian origin, one girl with an Afro-Dutch  father and two Belanda girls)  threw a wild birthday party with my Eurasian “schattebout” (= darling times 100).

I’m still recovering from my supervisor’s job :).

Yes, indeed, from this day on my lovely girlie girl, my talented little  drama queen, is someone from the past.

Now she is the most wonderful young lady in the world – well, at least in my world:).  Yet she will be  a very special  “schattebout” to me  forever.

  1. @ Triesti: Dank je wel :). Er zijn gelukkig toch ook veel schitterende dingen in ons tranendal, maar ik denk dat het knuffelen van een blij kleinkind het schitterendste is wat je na je zestigste kan gebeuren.
