I have been meaning to do this post since Mia arrived but the time was better used actually spending time with her. I’m sure you understand.
On 18 Aug it was Ga’s birthday AND Aunty Romy’s birthday (yip, the celebrate on the same day). We had a family gathering on Friday night at Ga’s house to celebrate the events and while we were praying the door bell rang. I think everyone wondered who it could be because all of the usual crowd was there, and then suddenly Mia walked into the room! We couldn’t believe it! You see, Aunty Mia lives in Australia and has to fly in a big plane to get here and we already knew that her and “Aunty Ben” (as the girls call him) are coming down in December for Christmas.
What a wonderful surprise! Everyone couldn’t believe it – most of all the girls. The first thing Kyla asked was, “Where Aunty Ben?” Although it took them absolutely no time to warm up to Aunty Mia and soon enough she couldn’t even shower without them banging on the door and throwing tantrums that they couldn’t go in.
It was absolutely lovely having her here and we can’t wait to have her and Uncle Ben back in December. Every morning since Aunty Mia left, the girls walk into the room and demand to know where Aunty Mia is, only to relive being slightly upset that Aunty Mia had to go back on the big plane to Uncle Ben. Then Riya shouts “puta” because she knows that we can at least chat on Skype.
Here’s a round up of our outings with Aunty Mia:
Mia arrives! Everyone was in shock and despite that, there was lots of screaming!
