Because we were too excited to wait …


My soon-to-be-three-year-old received something very special in the post yesterday.  I knew it was coming since my sister told me about it, but I wasn’t expecting it to come before her birthday.  But it did!  And I was as excited as my little girl.  I also knew that it was a jewellery box.  You see, my little one loves her accessories, although thankfully she only likes to play/wear them inside the house.  She didn’t have any box, all she had was a small basket which I bought in Bolgatanga in Ghana years ago to keep all her little trinkets in.

The original plan was to wait and bring all her presents with us when we drive up to Woburn Sands on Saturday where my in-laws live.  The birthday party with the family is scheduled on Sunday, her birthday is on Monday.  But last night, my husband and I were talking about it and I convinced him that T could at least open the present she got from her Aunt (my lovely younger sister) and then open the other presents later.  He agreed!

So this morning, there was one very excited little girl with her equally excited mother:


The little card read: Dear T, this is for your special treasures.  Happy Birthday to the most precious little girl in the whole wide world! Love Auntie M, Uncle M and your little cousin M.  (Yes, we call them the M&M&Ms).


The most precious little girl was the most excited and happiest little girl in the world!


The perfect jewellry box for the perfect little girl who loves her accessories.


Luckily, she has a lot of them!  A little friend of hers gave them to her on her 2nd birthday.


It’s beautiful Mommy!  

Yes indeed, sweetie.  Mommy is envious!

I wish I had one too.

Thank you Auntie M!  I love it and I love you!

Btw: Jewellery Box is from Mele & Co.


  1. Oh this is so so pretty. As is your little darling. My step daughter is all about grass stained knees & catching spiders to rescue** not a girly girl at all!! So I one day hope to be the auntie to buy such a treat :):)

    • I’m sure your step daughter will love it too. Actually, my little girl isn’t really the girly type. She loves Thomas the Tank, hot wheels etc… But she also a girly side… you know, the I love everything that’s pink side! Goodness… It’s a nice balance actually, between the “girly” and the cars and trains kind =)
