Time to slow down

An hour of Guess Who where daughter refused to ask questions other than has yours got eyes or a nose or ears. Must cultivate an appreciation of slow pace of life and greater patience. 🙄

Little things of beauty

Flower my son made for me out of cheese wax. 💕 Little things of beauty. ✨

Beauty in the mundane

My son and my mama taught me and remind me to always see the beauty in tiny things every single day, no matter how mundane my activities. We are truly blessed to have such wonder in our lives. Just need to keep our eyes open. ❤️

Clever kids

So the kids booby trapped the damn front door to stop burglars while we were away. I forgot. I tripped up! Thank goodness I went in first rather than when carrying a sleeping child. 😂😂😂

End of term rules of parenting

End of term tiredness

One is putting Paw Patrol pups into her glass of water and drowning the dining room in the process; the other is filling an old toilet roll with toilet paper and making a wet soggy mess of the toilet.

It's the first time they're not fighting all week AND they're effectively helping clean the floors. Result! 🤩

Croatian Christmas

Mlinci...mouth watering. Already had strudel at my mama's this weekend. ❤️ Miss the Croatian Xmas treats we always had...and love the wheat grass we always had on the tables. Bright green reminders of life after winter.

Toddler naming

Apparently my right boob is called "milkies" and the left is "milky surprise." 😂

We're so close to the end of our breastfeeding journey, not quite yet, but almost there...the ending initiated by me. So far it's been been four years and nine months (one kid and then another). I'm going to be happy to end, but this for me is one of the joys of breastfeeding a talking child - their comments about breastfeeding are amusing, sweet and lovely. I haven't regretted a moment of an often challenging journey. ❤️

Logic of a two year old

Daughter: I wonder what I'll be when I'm older.
Me: well girls usually become big girls and then ladies.
Daughter: I mean, I wonder if I'll be a firefighter...
Me: oh. Maybe.
Daughter: yeah, a firefighter or a pig.
Me: why would you be a pig?
Daughter: well, pigs have noses.
Me: erm, yes...

Goodnight wishes

My five year old son fell asleep saying to me:

"Stay awesome, share the love, peace to all!" ❤️
