Leila babe had her party in the park today and it was a great success.
The weather didn't initially appear to be on our side, but we pressed on and sure enough by the time we got to the park we were just left with little spitty showers.
We kept things very low key. We had some morning tea snacks, we had balls of all kinds, hula hoops, a wonderful park and each other's company. For Leila that's enough. She has a lot of trouble with attention focussed on her, so party games aren't necessarily the right way to go. She loves the idea of it, but the reality she struggles with. In the same way organised play, you can see she really wants to join in, but for her making that leap to joining in is most often just too great.
She snoring away on the couch now, so shattered. A success though, I'm so pleased.
