Happy Birthday Papa. A day to celebrate a special husband and precious father. Always around to help in every way he can to make parenting easy for me (he’s now become an expert cook like his mother). When Sasha was born, I still often remember Fabien putting Sasha in his sling and walk him through the garden whilst still dark so I could catch up on much needed sleep. When Sasha turned three we made the decision to move to our farm in Dominican Republic, leaving behind his business and our urban lifestyle. Fabien could now spend his time with the children. An amazing adventure it’s been, my children know more about farming, animals and agriculture at 4 and 7 than we knew when we came here.
How fortunate we are that the children have their papa with us every day. All meals are shared with the most wonderful conversations of the day’s happenings, strengthening our bond and their social skills. Fabien spends much time with the children taking them on adventure walks, jumping on the trampoline, swimming, playing, cuddling, building and creating. The boys have an amazing bond with him. he cares for the children just as any mother would. I’m always amazed at the patience he has with them and how he finds ways to always accommodate them under any circumstance.
Happy Birthday we love you
The boys felted wool over their wooden blocks to make a small capsule to hold the gift they made. A leather string with a wooden bead for a necklace and leather for a bracelet
For the cards the children put magic wool into a plastic bag with some water and soap to felt it. The I cut out some watercolor paper, they painted it and stuck the wool to the inside with a glue gun. So pretty.
We baked a delicious chocolate cake
