I wish I had more time to post, but it is just insanity central here. We spent Yiftah’s 1st birthday last week in hospital – little dude had an abscess in his left big toe which needed to be drained and treated with intravenous antibiotics. Since then he’s been at the breast like a two week old and playing around with low-grade fevers and tummy trouble.
The Undertaking of Grandiose Proportions has been completed successfully, and not a moment too soon. I just finished hot gluing the eyes on about half an hour ago and the party is tomorrow.
All we have left to do now is decorate the cake, make tahini cookies and date balls (sounds inappropriate for a nursery school birthday, I know), and spread 30 pita halves with hummus. And take the very sharp scissors out of Yiftah’s hands.
