Hello 2018

I am in a bit of denial that 2018 is already in full swing. Having said that we had such a lovely time away over December so we started off the year feeling refreshed and ready to tackle what comes our way (please let it be a gentle year!!)
Ollie started his first school day of 2018 yesterday entering Orange group with a new teacher BUT all his old friends. The past years first days of school have been met with tears but this year there were none! This mommy's heart is very grateful for the smooth beginning as it just breaks me when Ollie battles.

He settled in with ease and came home so happy! His new class is so much bigger and more structured as he is preparing for Grade R - goodness me!! How is my boy this big?

Cheers to the new year! May it be a cracker!!

Last post of 2017

I have decided this is going to be my last post of 2017 and its all things Christmasy.
This has been our family Christmas things of late -

Tinsel, our Christmas elf arrived and Ollie has been really enjoying him...

We also had our yearly Christmas photo with Santa, Charley was only a week or two old when we did ours last year!

Charley getting into the celebrations....

Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year....
Cheers to 2018!

"When I grow up...."

Ollie: Mom, when I grow up I want to be the man in the Lion Suit
Me: Ok, sure babes.

A List of things Ollie wants to be when he grows up in this order
1) A rubbish man
2) A Builder (but he cant build pools)
3) A Pizza delivery man
4) A motorbike rider
... and now the man in the lion suit....

Bless this child!

Afternoon nap...

On Saturday we had a lovely day and the best part was a little nap in the afternoon.
We put Charley down for a nap, Ollie was watching a movie on our bed and Mike was lying next to me... and I fell asleep.
I was unplanned and wonderful....

When C Bear woke up she came to watch with Mike and Ollie....  cuddle time!
