Errol has been redoing our lawn. The weeds are gone and new grass seeds have been planted. Peach and Theo were surprised to find that the forest of grass has been replaced with a dirty soil. Peach was insistent that her hand be above Theo’s on the window. When his hand accidentally pressed on hers she made sure to push his back down to his level.

This reminds me of the time when I was 5 and was riding tricycles in a circular courtyard with my friend Anna Gooden. I told Anna that I should be riding in front. Anna would politely oblige and let me ride in front of her. Since Anna was smaller than I and peddling slower I kept making a full loop before her and ending up trailing her. Around and around we went with me ending up behind her and getting more and more upset yelling “NO ANNA! I am supposed to be in front”.

So I stand here, shake my head and smile as my daughter swats his little hand down and says “I ON TOP”.

      @Devon, Aw, thanks Devon! You should absolutely start a 365! I’ve found it to be really rewarding seeing where all my time is going in a little photo form. Thanks for taking the time to let me know you found the blog ;)

Theo has discovered that by clutching the hem of my skirt like so, it’s incredibly difficult for me to ignore him.

Also, it’s an odd perspective knowing that I have a son who is only as tall as my knee ;) He’s this complete little personality, his own little man and he’s packaged in this tiny little body, so helpless and needy. I just have to do a double take when I realise just how small he still is. It’s nice to know he’s long off growing up and I am still very much needed.

    Ha! Clever boy! Cass only does this to get my attention in public, because she has learned that if she gives my skirt a really GOOD yank, she gets my attention quick smart! ;)

I’d like to say that’s not my Peach barefooted and refusing to walk or make eye contact in the middle of a busy shopping centre…

buuuut… it is.

It’s so much easier not to judge the parents of that wild child out at the shops when you’ve walked that path yourself. When you know it’s their teeth/they’re tired/they’re angry and not that you’ve raised a little terror. Of course, as your standing there watching your little sunshine behave like this you begin to wonder about your parenting too!

      @Juliet, Ah, I was thinking what will other people think of me taking a photo too! It’s just I want to document the year and these tantrums are definitely apart of it! Thankfully it’s a small camera now and I just had to pull it out of my handbag, snap and stuff it back in!

      I *wish* I could have these tantrums!

I have been paying my niece, Zali (10) to visit one day a week and be a ‘mothers helper’. I don’t think I have ever spent $20 so well. She wakes up early when the babies do and plays with them till I wake, tidies the playroom, plays with Priya, helps me with crazy craft ideas I’ve had and is wonderful company boot! Today we decided to take a print of Theo bears foot. Didn’t turn out as well as we’d hoped but it’s still going on the wall. I wanted to document the task and asked Zali to show me Theo’s foot. While she was lifting him up I caught this moment between the two of them and it made me so, so thankful my sister had kids before me! I love this girl and so does my boy.

    Zali is a star. So wonderful and kind and helpful and funny and thoughtful. What an angel child! We are blessed :o)
