The Portrait Series: 13/52


Can someone please tell me when my babies got so big?

We made it through the first term of prep!
I knew the transition would be big…but it was huge!
He has grown so much, in so many awesome ways.
He is reading, writing, asking questions about math that are already too complex for me to answer.
And he has grown physically!
I feel like I am going to blink and he will be my height, staring straight into my eyes.

One official day into holidays and he is already asking when read more

Guess where Charlie and I went?
Both kids had already been to see the current exhibitions but I had missed them and wanted to make sure I got to see them before Sugar Spin came to a close.
My parents are in town so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to visit GOMA and enjoy the GOMA Turns 10 celebrations.
Charlie loved Nervescape V 2016 (aka the furry wall) and The Cubic Structural Evolution Project (aka white Lego).
I loved HEARD (aka the dancing horses) read more

Not in terms of dreaming.
But in terms of letting go.
What if you didn’t vacuum the house.
How would that feel?
What if you put your child in after school care one day a week?
How would that feel?

I actually just now was asking myself what if I didn’t do The Portrait Series posts.
How would that feel?
Last year when my camera broke I was forced to take a break read more

I am constantly amazed at how different my children are.
He is a picky eater.  She will eat anything.
He is physically timid but has no qualms about mud, touching insects, blood.  She is physically fearless but doesn’t like to get dirty, hates bugs, and if she gets a mosquito bite on her ankle she acts like her leg has been cut off!
He is often still.  She is never still.

I do like to think that our children can teach us more about ourselves than we could ever hope to learn read more
