Ear Infection

There is a naughty fairy living in my ear and she is making it hurt (or so I told the doctor today). I was awake all night and very uncomfortable. I think everyone is very tired today, Michael is currently sleeping the day away so I must have disturbed him too last night! Mummy took me to see the doctor this morning- something tells me she wasn't sure if I was telling the truth. My ear is very red inside but I'm not being given antibiotics which Mummy is pleased about as she thinks it is important for me to fight things myself. The doctor has insisted that we manage my pain though so I'm having to take Calpol and Ibuprofen regularly. It does help for a little while, enough for me to run around like a lunatic for an hour and then fall asleep anyway! The good part of being ill is all the fuss I get. The down side though, is that I can't go to nursery today.

At least I had a great week. Daddies trip to Saudi was cancelled so we had a whole week with him here! I spent Monday afternoon outside playing with Adriana on our bikes and we made puddles with our drinking water and splashed around like Peppa Pig and George! I had fun in nursery making salt dough mini beasts with my class on Tuesday morning and in the evening Michael and I stayed at Adriana's house so Mummy and Daddy could go out for dinner together. On Wednesday Mummy, Michael and I spent the whole morning in our pyjamas playing games! I went along to a little party in the afternoon which I really enjoyed! We played lots of games and danced around. Each of us got a little trophy for participating but I lost mine! On Thursday we had a charity bake sale at nursery for Worlds Down Syndrome Day. I had 2 cakes and a biscuit but felt a bit sick afterwards! I finished nursery early so Mummy took me to play with Adriana and we had lunch together. I came home to speak with Nanny and Grandad on Skype which is always great fun. Grandad sings silly songs about Michael and I!

I went for lunch with Charlie, Jack, Katie and William (our parents were there too of course) and then we watched a show at the theatre together on Friday. I loved it and found it very funny! Michael watched half of it before he fell asleep but he kept smiling so I guess he enjoyed it too! Afterwards Daddy treated Mummy and I to tea and cake at the Mina Al Salam Hotel which was delicious! I was exhausted and ready for bed when we got home that afternoon! Yesterday Michael had to go to the doctors again as he needed a scan on his hip. Fortunately everything is fine, he just has one chubbier thigh! We had lunch afterwards at a little cafe and then I had to visit the dentist. I was very pleased to see that Mummy had taken me to see Toby's mummy! I happily let her look at my teeth even though she had tickley fingers! My teeth are all there and they looked fine, best of all the dummies I no longer have, didn't do any damage to them! The best part of my visit was going into the staff room to see the fish and budgies! I can't wait to go and let Hannah look at my teeth again soon! I spoke to nanny, Rose and Aunty Lisa on Skype last night too.

Today will mostly be spent feeling sorry for myself on the sofa! Mummy has let me watch DVDs while we snuggle up so I feel a bit better! Daddy is going to try and come home in time to have dinner with me and I'll need cuddles before bed from him! I hope you are enjoying the weekend despite the cold back home. I hope it stops snowing ready for us to visit in June!

Lots of love

Busy BumbleBees

As always, I've been very busy and neglected my blog! Must try harder so I can keep my Nannies up to date with my adventures here! It has now been a week since the Dummy Fairy came to visit and my parents are constantly telling me how proud they are of me. I've only had one meltdown over them since then and asked Mummy to call the fairy and ask for them back but we both got through it and I've come to accept that they really are gone and not just hidden in a cupboard somewhere. I still have my Barbie to play with anyway!

Last week Daddy had to work away in the UK and Saudi so we didn't see very much of him. We were however, lucky enough to borrow Mollie, Jack and Charlie's Nanny, for a couple of mornings a week to look after Michael and I. I love Mollie and I think my brother does too! She took us to the park and played with our toys with us. The two days we had her here, I screamed when she left! Mollie is much more fun than Mummy! We also have a new maid that comes in 3 afternoons a week to help Mummy. She is great and does so much to help, I've noticed a much less stressed Mummy when she is here. Daddy really likes that all his clothes are ironed, folded and put away too (Mummy doesn't know how to use an iron apparently...)

At nursery for the last week, we have been learning all about mini beasts! We have painted our own ladybirds and other funny looking bugs! I've come home with flowers painted on my face and bumblebees on my arm (the bees are my favourite!) It's been a very interesting topic and I've been teaching Mummy all about them. If we had a garden, I'd be able to take her out to look for these mini beasts! Maybe next year.

Daddy was home with us for the whole weekend for a change which was lovely. We went to Global Village on Friday evening with Adriana's family which I really enjoyed. There was a play area for us, we had some delicious Arabic food, Krispy Kreme donuts and Adriana and I were allowed to buy a helium balloon- I chose a tiger and Adriana chose a car! On Saturday we met Eleanor and Williams family at Tast of Dubai and enjoyed some more delicious food! Nellie and I danced away the evening and bounced away on the bouncy castle! It was great fun!

Yesterday Mummy took Michael to his first baby sensory class while I was at nursery. She said he didn't like it too much as he has a cold and just wanted cuddles. Mummy is going to take him next week to see if he likes it better. In the afternoon we met my friends Eleanor, Jack, Charlie, Toby, Elodie and Katie at soft ply and stayed for dinner together. It was like a party but without the cake! Mummy and I met Daddy at the Dubai Mall afterwards for Mummy and Daddy to do some chores and get dinner. I treated myself to a new toy with some money I found in Mummies purse too!

Today we are having a quiet day as Michael is still not very well and Mummy is getting a cold now too! I hope they all keep their germs to themselves! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I hope the weather is getting better back home!  

Lots of love

The Dummy Fairy

The Dummy fairy paid me a visit this evening. Before I went in the bath, Mummy suggested I put all of my dummies in a bag that we could leave outside the door for the fairy to take away. I think she will give them out to babies that still need their dummies- I'm a big girl now so I don't really need them anymore. After I had my bath and put my pyjamas on, Mummy said we should check to see if the fairy had taken my dummies. I was so excited when we opened the door and there was a shiny red present with my name on it! The fairy left me a Barbie doll to say thank you for giving away my dummies. I love my new doll! Tonight I will be taking her to bed with me instead of those baby dummies. I showed Daddy my new Barbie on Skype and he was very proud of me for being so good and letting the dummies go!

Well, it's bedtime. I hope Mummy isn't planning on sleeping too much tonight...


It's been two weeks since I last had chance to sit down and update my blog, it's been a very busy couple of weeks! We can't believe it's March already, this year is already going too fast. Since my last post, I have had another assessment at a school we applied to last year. It went really really well and my parents told me that they were proud of me (naturally). I have been offered two school places now and we have to make a decision about which one I'll go to. I'm happy with whatever my parents decide as there were plenty of toys at both schools to keep me happy!

As a treat for doing so well, my parents took me to Al Tamimi Stables to see some animals and play in this great big outdoor park. I had a lovely day but was disappointed that there were no pink or blue horses. I was also too small to ride on any of them so we are going to go back next winter when I should be a little bit bigger! Michael enjoyed looking at the animals and watching me play too!

I had a busy time at nursery as always and had a lot of fun! Mummy seems to be enjoying having time alone with Michael when I'm there too but I make sure she makes it up to me with lots of attention when I get home. We met with friends last week at soft play and in the park. I had a great time at Magic Planet with Cora and we played together really well considering we haven't seen each other since she moved back to Scotland two summers ago. I hope we can see her again soon. I spent time with Toby and Elodie on Tuesday afternoon and then went to the Dubai Mall to meet Daddy for dinner. I was fast asleep by the time I got home!

Adriana and I have had lots of time together too as our daddies are both travelling so much at the moment and our mummies like to keep each other company. We also went to Safa Park for a BBQ last Friday and Jack and Charlie joined us with their parents. It was a lovely day and luckily not too hot! We spent the evening at Adriana's house and the on Saturday, Daddy had to fly back to the UK. Mummy, Michael and I are very jealous but we couldn't go as Michaels' passport isn't ready yet! Silly Michael...

Today is Mother's Day and I've just given Mummy a card that I made in nursery as well as a cupcake I decorated (well actually, I just showed her the cake and then I told her how nice it was). I think she liked them! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and are enjoying Mothering Sunday whatever you are doing.

Lots of love
