Organising Immy’s party is proving hard as we don’t really know which little friends she really prefers and which are just kids in the crèche room. Perfect timing was the crèche photos, with a picture of the group of 11. I asked Immy to point to the kids she wanted to invite. NO BOYS.
Max is new at crèche. Max has a few special needs. He may not walk or talk, he struggles to swallow and has trouble eating, Max can't hear perfectly either.
But Imogen loves Max.
She likes to sit and read stories to him and ‘teach’ him to say Mum. She likes to see him smile and she celebrates when he says a word. She likes to stroke his arm and chatter away to him about what she is doing.
Max had to be invited to the party.
Until yesterday I had never met Max or his Mum.
I was at pick up early and I introduced myself to Max’s Mum who was there to pick him up too. As usual, in my fluster, I had forgotten the invites to the party, and as Max wont be back til next week I wanted to let her know the date and that Max was invited.
Max’s Mumma cried with happiness that he had been invited to a party.
She made me cry very proud tears that my daughter was such a sweet and caring girl.
The four carers cried to see the Mumma’s crying.
Immy is just wanting to know what all the fuss is about, and will there be balloons, if so, we need a blue one for Max. OK?
