As a family, we read a lot. We have been reading to the boys from pretty much day one. We will read to them in the afternoons, after dinner, and especially before they go to sleep. Even going to the library is a special treat. I received a few books the other day though, that… Continue reading Sir Mouse to the Rescue – Review for Kiwi Mummy Blogs & Book Island
With the cold lately, it's been hard to get out and about. But, the moment that sun pokes through the clouds, we try and take advantage of it! A few weeks back, we took a little trip to the Wellington Zoo. We got to see so many amazing things, a tiger feeding, a couple feisty… Continue reading Winter at the Zoo
We aren't an overly political family, but somethings can really grind our gears. So this weekend, the boys participated in their first protest march! Well, rather, they came along for it with us and got to witness democracy in action! Of course, there was a little playground action first. If you aren't aware of what the TPPA… Continue reading TPPA, Go Away!
Goodbye, Autumn. Hello, Winter.X
A few weeks ago, the boys and I drove up to Whanganui for a few days. It was nice to give Jacob some time to himself as he was still healing after his surgery and getting no peace here at home with two crazy two and a half year old boys. Without Timmy Dog on this… Continue reading Misty mornings and The Cat Whisperer.
A few weeks ago, we received a blue Bouncing Buddy Dog named “Dribbles”, who was quickly renamed Trevor, somehow. Our boys soon fell in love with him. They took turns showing him around the house, telling him not to touch the oven - “No, it’s hot, Trevor.” and then started feeding him imaginary dog food.… Continue reading Kiwi Mummy Blog Review – Bouncing Buddies
Man, it is cold! I honestly can not get over it. The bitter southerly has kicked in and it's kicking our asses! While it's really beautiful out when the sun is shining, I can feel my ears go numb. Time to break out all the winter gear and start layering up. Lots of layers. lots… Continue reading Autumn is here.
I received a call after 3am last Sunday morning. The worst kind. From the hospital. From the ED. Jacob was there. He didn't know what happened, but was able to recall our phone number. "He's in and out of consciousness and has a lot of swelling to the side of his face." the nurse told me.… Continue reading So when the horrible happens…
Ok. Totally crying. This past week, one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world came to visit us in NZ. It has been a whirlwind trip for them, visiting so many places in such a little amount of time. But I feel so lucky that they spent a week with us here in Wellington.… Continue reading Such a beautiful week…
In case I haven't mentioned it before, some of Jacob's family moved recently, closer to Wellington which is awesome, into a gorgeous, 100-year old farmhouse. It's beautiful, peaceful and quiet. It's just outside of the town and surrounded by rolling hills. If we didn't have the house we have, I would have killed for this house!… Continue reading Another summery sunny weekend in Whanganui
