This weeks pictures to represent my children and where they are right now were taken when I was doing a photoshoot for my friends daughter. Granted it’s not perfect but I love it. He was smiling about 10 seconds before this picture but out of no where his little face crumpled. Don’t worry, this was very quickly followed by a cuddle!
This my lovelies, is the reality of parenthood in our house – if it’s not one then it’s the other one!
Living Arrows 41/52
Can anyone else say “threenager?!” Bring back the terrible twos….. Don’t get me wrong, her behaviour isn’t too bad and overall she’s still the happy affectionate little girl she always was. The temper and mood swings though – wow. No one warned me that these days were coming! I feel for her though, she loves to colour, play with her figures, make things with play doh and do puzzles but unfortunately the little man just doesn’t leave her alone to do it. And not matter how much I try to distract him, he just wants to be doing what she’s doing.
In to everything, this little man has two speeds: on or off. Take your eyes off him for a second and he’s off, climbing or running! New words such as “car”, “dog” and “tractor” have been added to his vocabulary and he’s getting good at use them in context. It’s not all fun though, his molars are cutting. Two are fully through, another is about half way and the last one is bulging. I’m hoping it’ll pop soon and I can get my happy boy back.
