Ilaria turns four February 20, 2007

Posted by dorigo in games, personal, social life.

Today Ilaria turns 4. For my experience with kids, four is a turning point – they are no longer babies, but individuals who can surprise you with their independent thought. They become easier to manage, but harder to command.

We had a party on Sunday with a few schoolmates of Ilaria, plus a few of Filippo’s friends. Ten kids all in all, but it was as usual very hard to keep them quiet. But I had prepared for that. I put together a crossword on a big board, and bought prizes. The kids had to guess the words from simple definitions (I had two sets, one for the 4-year-olds, and one for the 8-year-old friends of Filippo). It went surprisingly well, since they participated in the game and were quiet for more than a half hour.

Below Ilaria is dressed up and waiting for her friends next to the party table:
