End of year report time

So proud of the kids' reports. Son is exceeding in almost everything, but the best bit was his compassion and kindness towards others, often volunteering to be a friendship buddy for others when they need support. ❤️ Daughter has made a great start at preschool, doing wonderfully academically and finally starting to settle well after near constant anxiety at drop off. 🙏 I think they'll both have a great year next year. Feeling thankful, blessed, lucky and so incredibly proud of my kind, loving, chatterbox, hard workers. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Making up songs

Three year old daughter's song as she scooted home from school: "I really want to have a campervan, I really want to have a motorhome, I really want to live in campervan..." ❤️😊

Transience

Daughter asked me to keep the door open, so she could make sure the world was still on the other side. Reminded me that when I was little I used to get scared of the transience and impermanence of the world too. I'd forgotten how scary the world can seem to a little person. ❤️

Strength of character

Daughter is so stubborn, she fell asleep sitting up this evening while muttering "storeeee" repeatedly and sadly for 45 minutes (I said no, because she chose a longer bath and playing with the rocket instead). Admittedly for the last 10 minutes she was half leaning on me. I am in awe of her determination. She's going to be a strong woman one day! ❤️

Today's bedtime game

As chosen by the kids: their game with daddy today is him being a white blood cell and them being germs. 😂

Child of many faces

Following on from my precious son's "does it sound like the stars are singing?" comment, passing a wind farm in the car, he dreamily said "mama, I'd love to be a wind turbine."

"Why darling," I asked him, expecting something beautiful.

"Because then I can chop people up with my blades..."

😳😂

Impressive daddy

Daughter realised that the photos in our house of a man riding a mountain bike are actually daddy: "Impressive daddy, you have to bow to him now!"

😳 😂

No.

Sound bath

Son just gave me the most beautiful sound bath with my tongue drum, and asked me "does it sound like the stars are singing?" My incredible, precious child. ❤️ ⭐
