I love the textures of the smooth, hard beige beads against the soft, plush grey fur.

I love the first photo: Z is in action and totally oblivious to the camera. Her face is hidden-ish so is blog worthy. When her hair’s not in pigtails, people just see the bangs and bob haircut and tell us, she looks like Dora. Maybe it’s because she’s brown?

The necklace: here’s one of Z’s favourite necklaces that came apart on the beginning of our travels to Pakistan. The ABC letters keep her entertained: she LOVES the ABC in upper case. LOVES it. Lower case is a different story, and she can’t be bothered. I figured it would be a light portable necklace that could function as something to keep her busy on the flight if needed. So much for my idea! The necklace became a pile of forlorn, disconnected beads stuffed in a carry-on bag.

My mother upon spotting the beads in disarray offered to repair it so hopefully Z will get her beloved necklace back soon.

 Lately, Z loves necklaces and bangles and will put them on and wear them for a good part of the day. Talk about a girly girl!

“Indeed, God will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearl, and their garments therein will be silk” (Quran 22:23).


  1. it’s amazing that she discerns between upper and lower case letters!!
    ps I LOVED your travel photos and blog entries…merci pour nous raconter tes experiences riches .

  2. I feel like I could reach out and feel the texture of the vest. My 4 yo loves to adorn herself with accessories, layering tiara, rings, bracelets, necklaces, hair clips, and play heels. She came into it on her own.
