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.
