I made missy humour me and play “nature girl” so I could get a photo for Earth day, It was super cold out that day so she gave me 5 mins

We went to take some photos in a field of wild flowers only to discover they had been mown 😦 She found this lonely little flower and decided that she shouldn’t pick it so it has a chance to seed and grow more flowers next year ❤

Being Australian where valentines day isn’t hugely celebrated amongst children, I’m still adjusting to life in Dallas tx where my kids come home with valentines from most of their class. Missy was very excited to make chocolates for everyone this year!

CM The Lovely Everyday

This is the first post in a blog circle for a relaxed 365 project with other members from Clickin Moms, unfortunately I missed the deadline this week but thought that I’d share anyway.

Here are photos from the last week. We baked some yummy lemon slice, played in muddy puddles, swam, played at home, playing mummy and babies was big this week and attended a 4.5 birthday party.

Seventy Days of Summer – Day 15-21

Third week of holidays began with fathers day so we made Daddy a special breakfast, which he liked even though you kiddies weren’t overly impressed. It has been heating up so we have been spending our afternoons either inside or in the pool and have been busy with our usual lessons and errands, I have been a bit slack about taking my camera with me so other than the pizza shot these are photos of us enjoying our home time this week. 🙂

Letters to our Daughters – June 2014

Dearest Andi,

Summer is here! You finished up your first year of preschool at the end of May. You have been a little lost without the routine of getting up and going to school in the mornings but you’re getting use to the idea, although not taking advantage of the opportunity to sleep in much to my dismay! You have been missing your friends from school and occasionally ask to see a video of them that I have on my phone… I feel bad that I didn’t make plans to catch up with them more often when I see your face light up when you you watch it. There is however a birthday party in the coming weeks which I know you’ll be beside yourself with excitement at catching up with them again. You adore being around people!

I was reading through some of my previous letters and already I can see how much you’ve grown since January, you no longer talk incessantly, I often see you in thought, which is a new thing, I must say although the quiet is nice I do miss knowing every little thought that enters your head. I know as you grow older what you share with me will become less and less but remember I’m always here for you.

You are taking swimming lessons and music classes over the Summer which you are loving, particularly the swimming. Your teachers name is Miss Kelsey and you absolutely adore her. You have been working on your “ice cream scoops” and floating on your back, which you seem to find incredibly difficult to trust yourself… you can do it when someone holds their arms below you but the second they take them away (even when they aren’t supporting you) you turn over. I know it’s sometimes hard to trust in yourself but you really can!

We have had a bit of an issue with monsters at night lately, apparently there is a monster that comes to your room only at night. You described him in great detail; he is big black and furry with two sharp teeth and he tries to eat your blood. I asked you what we could do to stop him coming and as I suspected all of my suggestions were met with a “that won’t work”, not even monster spray which apparently he eats… it had to be something that you came up with that would work in your mind, you decided that if we put a sign up high, because the monster can’t climb walls, he wouldn’t be able to get in your room. So we set about making a sign I got to do the writing (under your direction) “NO GO AWAY, MUMMY AND DADDY PROTECT US HERE”  and you colored and drew a picture of a good monster who can come to life to scare off the bad monster. Daddy also bought a new monitor for your room so if you needed us you can call out and when he went to put it in your room you said that you were too big for a monitor but he could leave it just in case. So we have our sign up high outside your bedroom and you have not had any visits from the monster since, or none that I am aware of. I wish I could promise that I could always protect you from the scary things in this world, but what I can promise is to do my best.

To my darling girl who loves princesses, whose new favorite phrase is “long term memory” and eats tomato sauce on anything she can I love you to the moon and back.

Love Mummy xoxox
