With in the little giraffe clan you will find Ellie, a 12 year old girl who is fast approaching her 13th birthday and it went by so fast that I didn’t see it coming.
Let me tell you a little bit about Ellie Jayne.
She is very clever and in the top 10 of her year, she loves to read, draw and sing…oh and did I mention that she thinks she is the queen of puns.
Some would say that she thinks she punny……see what I did there??
Anyway so when I met Ellie she was this little shy girl who was very diplomatic with her answers and was always on the fence when it came to questions where she had to pick one or the other.
Fast forward a few years and she is now 12 and comes with a new pre teen attitude complete with sighs, eye rolls and she never did it.
She likes her lie ins and her creature comforts like just sitting in the sofa with a cup of tea, a blanket and a book.
For her 13th birthday we have decided to do her a party at the local venue but trying to get out of her a theme for it is like getting blood from a stone, we don’t even know what she wants for her birthday because she doesn’t know what she wants herself.
Its been fun and a privileged for me to watch her grow from a little girl into a well behaved teen and I have no doubt she will grow into a very successful young woman with a great career ahead of her.
All she needs to do now is find a husband who eats beef like she does, can put up with her crazy dancing and can deal with all of her puns.
Good luck fella!
