Gah. We’re sick. It’s rather unpleasant. The one lovely thing is that Rola took Peach (who seems remarkably well) and I had today just with my bear. Despite the house being in dire need of attention, I decided to take a rest day and spent it eating carrot cake and watching Desperate Housewives with Theo. There is nothing more lovely than having a baby bear to cuddle with while you’re sick. Theo just slept on my chest, nursed and gnawed at my finger all.day.long. I forget how easy it is to amuse someone so little. What I did when I only had one baby, lord only knows!
Horrible photo I know. My camera does poorly in low light. Anyway, it was just a snap of catching the Peach red-handed. I knew to bring my camera with me after the mysterious silence alerted me to the fact she was probably being cheeky! How right I was. That’s an entire roll of hideously scented garbage bags around her feet.
Theo is getting to be so curious. While I unpack groceries into the car, I like to let him to lay this way upright in his chair and he LOVES it. There was some interesting happenings taking place in the parking bay opposite (involving a trolley boy, a coke bottle and a man trying to reverse) which seemed to spark the children’s curiosity. When I told them it was time to go neither of them flinched or showed any sign of taking their eyes off the action. Theo’s little eyebrows raised like this made me smile. I feel I can almost see his brain ticking.
After spending the day out on an Island in Moreton Bay, I expected the Peach to flop into bed exhausted. I had of course forgotten that recently she’s developed a little bed time routine that involves teeth washing, hair fluffing and much time in front of the mirror. Somebody help me! Who is this child! (anyone who knows us personally, don’t answer that! I know exactly where she gets it! )
This would have to be the closest I have come to missing a photo for the day. We went out today to an Island and silly me forgot to put the battery in the camera before we left. A lot of use it is without that. Mean whilst; I was reminded to be IN the moment instead of snapping pictures. The sun set on the bay as we came home on the barge and it was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. In the middle of cursing myself forgetting the battery I realised how silly I was being! I don’t need the camera to tell me I saw something amazing. I was there. I know. Theo snuggled under layers, Peach clinging excitedly to my legs and Errol at my side, a more lovely evening I could not have imagined, even sans camera.
The camera was fully charged and ready to go to snap a goodnight pic of our little bear. All tired out after a day of adventuring.
