A very Happy Birthday to, our gorgeous little niece, Etta!
Goodbye, Autumn. Hello, Winter.X
As the boys turn more and more into proper boys, their energy seems endless. There were once days that they would sleep every afternoon for two hours. I almost can't imagine that now. The last few months, day sleeps have gone out the window. And with that - all of our sanity! There are those… Continue reading The days of napping…
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

But I feel so lucky that they spent a week with us here in Wellington.… Continue reading Such a beautiful week…

They have a running commentary about the things they do, they thank each other for helping, and they share snacks. It is very sweet to see. I guess I feel lucky that they have this… Continue reading Sharing & Summer Showers
Last week, on our usual trip to Moore Wilson's, we were greeted by a massive wooden crate in the middle of the shop with locally grown apples! Halleluja! It's almost autumn! Not that I want it to come too quick, since this summer has been truly amazing! But really, there has been a slight drop in… Continue reading It’s just about APPLE SEASON!!!
"Go see the ducks." "Off to see the ducks." A couple weekends ago while we were enjoying some of that summer heat, Jacob suggested on a Saturday night that we should go the next morning and see the ducks down at the Wellington Botanical Gardens. The boys were keen. It turned out to be a lovely… Continue reading Duck!
