By popular request, that's our lovely Little Phoebe in our kitchen this afternoon. I was busy cooking the Sunday dinner but I made time to capture a few images of her at sixteen months old. Those pink shoes are her second pair'
Her Great Auntie Carolyn works in a charity shop and spotted a plastic kiddie car when it first came in. She thought it would be a good buy for Little Phoebe and this was her very first outing in her new vehicle.
To tell you the truth, it is not new at all. It's secondhand but that is fine with us, Stew and Frances too. We have made a point of avoiding buying any new plastic toys for Phoebe. Everything is secondhand or used - out of respect for this planet's finite resources. We have been squandering plastic for far too long and it is time to cease or at least to hugely reduce our purchasing of plastic items and items encased in plastic packaging.
Phoebe does not seem to mind one iota that her car is used as she prepares to drive off into the sunset. Let's hope that in a few months we will have an opportunity to pass the "Little Tikes" plastic car on to another small child to enjoy.
