Flat tyre

Call Gogo


My darling Hunter, We were sitting on the couch today, just a normal winter day, but we were snuggled up under a blanket. To give you some perspective our couch is a corner couch and we were snuggled in the corner, so the ends of the the couch can’t be much more than a meter…

A growing family through your eyes.


My Darling Hunter, Today we spent some time in the baby’s room today, and while I was busy you settled into the cot talking to yourself while the mobile played. Suddenly you looked over to the window and saw the teddys I had arranged on the window sill. Without missing a beat you say “look…

Happy Valentine’s day!


My Darling Hunter, I walk into your room this morning and shout “Happy Valentine’s day!”,  while handing you a chocolate heart. Your response “Oh jes, happy birthday!” Ok so we let that one go… it was too cute to correct. Happy Valentine’s day my angel, and thanks for my beautiful heart picture!

Come I show you!


My Darling Hunter, It was just the other day that we were praising you for putting your first sentence together “Come Mommy, I show you”, but lately that sentence comes with dread. As a parent your mind starts racing…what could he have done that he is so proud of? Last week I got home from…
