Christmas parties are on the horizon. Still fairly distant (although Mini-M is informing us on a daily basis that it is going to be Christmas soon) but now we are fully prepared and party-ready with sliver glittery mouse shoes! On a less pretty note, we were in the bathroom and Mini-M wanted to sing Christmas songs. I said no, since it was too early. She then tried to convince me that we had to, because (I quote) "It will help me do my poo, Mummy". I remain unconvinced!
