Mermaids` Makings

Toothfairies, Teddys and Golf

Annabel LOVES to play with her furry friends. Especially with her  teddy bears. She does everything with them- plays school, hospital.. cooks for them, puts them to bed, takes them for a walk.. she even used to take the small ones to school with her.  They sat in her school bag all day, so it can’t have been very exciting for them. A few days ago she taught her beloved polar bear to play golf. Golf is very popular in our house at the minute. Annabel has learnt it at school and is passing on her knowledge to us very proudly.

And again.. you don`t really need any special golf things.. you can just use rolled up paper, a ball and a paper cup (for the hole).

We encouraged her to write down the scores as well to develop her adding skills.

A few days ago I saw these two lovely books in the shop. I was so thrilled to see that they are exactly what Annabel loves to play. They are about Fred Bear and his friends. In one they go to the Dentist’s  and in the other they go to the Doctor`s. The bears have been  photographed in real life.. which is wonderful. Nice change from drawn illustrations.

The Dentist is a very hot topic in our house anyway as Annabel visited the Dentist a couple of weeks  ago and she was very brave and proud of herself.

Annabel lost her first tooth in summer last year. She was very excited about it. She couldn`t wait to go to bed and put her tooth under her pillow to get a coin from the toothfairy the next morning. This toothfairy tradition is quite new in Estonia, although not in the UK as my husband remembers it from when he was a child. When my son was little he threw the tooth on top of a stove for a good luck (lots of houses had very high stoves in their living room).  But I can`t remember what happened in my childhood.

Here is Annabel`s drawing of the tooth fairy she made last summer.

Meie viimase aja õhtune mäng on golf. Annabel õppis seda koolis mängima ja nüüd ei möödu ühtegi õhtut ilma golfita. Kuna meil golfi varustust ei ole, leidis tüdruk et saab ka ilma hakkama. Ta võttis suure paberirulli, palli ja kummuli keeratud pabertopsi, kuhu me palle veeretama hakkasime. Lõbusaks koduseks mänguks ju piisab :)

Väga vahva oli vaadata, kuidas ta oma kallist jääkaru (suure venna kingitus) õpetas golfi mängima. Annabel mängib üldse väga palju oma karvaste loomadega. Ta mängib nendega poodi ja kooli.. söödab neid, paneb magama ja viib jalutama. Kuni viimase ajani võttis ta väiksemaid loomi isegi kooli kaasa.

Mõni päev tagasi ostsin poest kaks karu raamatut. Need on vahvad sellepärast, et pildistatud on mängukarusid igapäevases tegevuses. Päris mõnus vaheldus joonistatud illustratsioonidele. Annabel sätib oma karusid täpselt samamoodi nagu seal raamatuski :) Ja hambaarsti teema on ka viimasel ajal pop. Käisime mõni aeg tagasi hambaarstil ja tüdruk oli nii uhke enda üle, et ta nii tubli oli. Ta räägib viimasel ajal tihti, et ta tahab tagasi minna. Oma lapsepõlvest ma mäletan, et hambaarst oli see koht, kuhu hea meelega ei mindud.

Hambahaldjas käib ka meie majas. See on kyll vist viimase aja komme. Poja puhul mõned head aastad tagasi sai hambad ahju peale visatud. Enda lapsepõlvest ma seda hammaste teemat ei mäletagi. Huvitav oleks lugeda eestlaste hammaste lõikumise traditsioone :) Kas teid on kylastanud hambahaldjas?

    sõbra lapsed mängisid golfipalliga golfi, kasutades golfikepiks ema köögiriistu…. vahukulp jms.
    ära tulnud hammast hoidsin vist karbikeses või sahtlis kuni ära kadus. eriti uhke tunne oli kui hammas oli just ära tulnud… siis hoidsin peos ja näitasin kõigile :)

    Meil küll hambahaldjat väikesena ei käinud. Lihtsalt nentisime fakti, et ära tuli. Mäletan, et hoidsin hambaid üksvahe tikutopsi sees sahtlis, aga mis neist edasi sai… ju viskasime ära.
