{Harper} It was a difficult day.
{Finn} Learning to compromise: Finn and Harper don't always see eye to eye on the games they choose to play together. It usually goes like this: Finn suggests that they play Fire-fighters, Harper rejects his offer but proposes they play princesses, Finn says "But I don't want to play princesses!", they both storm off and promptly do their own thing. Today though, Finn gave a little and gained a little back. He agreed to play hairdressers with Harper in return for a bit of a time role playing being divers in an under sea adventure. It wasn't easy for him. He barely lets me touch his curls, but on this afternoon he winced and flinched as Harper combed his hair. He sat and bared it all and Harper was delighted. She told him he looked beautiful with his new "style" and Finn seemed to agree.

  1. ohhhh Harper, darling... hugs to you little honey (and to mama too). sorry it was a hard day xx

    on a happier note, the shot w finn at hairdressers is SOOO sweet - good on finn for stepping out of his comfort zone for playtime!

    the jumping shot is so amazing too - perfect timing!and the sword turned out perfectly too - he must be thrilled :) another gorgeous collection!

  2. aww Harper! that face, so cute! x

  3. Oh I can so relate to the 'compromising' on the game playing! I have 2 girls, 5 and 8 years old and it's daily tango that they dance!!

  4. I love the compromise:) So nice when the kids play beautifully together. Melts your heart!

  5. I loved reading about Finn and Harper's compromise! That is exactly what my brother and I used to do when we were desperate for a play mate but didn't want to play the same thing, brought back memories. Milo shares Finn's love of Buzz Lightyear. ;)

  6. the top two are just perfect. making them some of my faves for the week :)
