Our little princess turned 5 on the 20th of July. When she woke up the first thing she said was that she had been singing "Happy Birthday to You" (in Italian) to herself during the night. We sang to her when she had her breakfast and she got her presents - a hobby horse (Sofia was quite jealous about it, she wanted one too), a Barbie and a little pony and I think she liked them all a lot. Then we had lunch at a nice summer restaurant, Kärkisaari, a lovely villa that also has rooms to rent during summer time. I think we have to organize a party with her friends, too later on when we get back to Rome.
It really seems to have happened something in our 5-year-old princess, she is much easier to deal with and has less angry moments. I´m sure it also has to do with the fact that we don´t have to hurry to school early in the morning and she doesn´t have to follow her big sister and brother to all kinds of hobbies and in general, that she feels at ease here. Hopefully it also has something to do with maturing, so this good mood will continue also in Rome!
