Childhood friendships are formed over cups of cold water tea and numerous outfit changes for little girls. Franca is blessed to have a few great little buddies that live just around the corner and go to the same school. We have playdates weekly at each others houses where the little people play while the Mums sip tea and catch up on the gossip. Its such a magical age when their little imaginations create a whole senario of make believe and furniture gets dragged from one end of the house to another to set up the scenes to go with these. Teaparties, babies, dressups, doctors and train rides seem to be the flavour of this month. I cant wait to see what the next one brings.

One of Franca’s favourite things to do is dance and her weekly Ballet lessons are a highlight. Im not too sure if she’ll ever amount to the Royal Ballet as she’s a little bit more of a hip wiggler than a ballerina, but Im sure she will find her calling.
I love finding ballet outfits for her that are different from the norm; and she certainly stands out in her class each week. We were lucky enough to have been able to use a friend’s Barre (an adult exercise) studio in Auckland for the shoot, so no excuses, Mums, you can learn all the correct lingo. And get fit at the same time with the popularity of these classes growing worldwide!
