Happy birthday to my first baby girl. Five years has flown and yet it has also seemed like its taken forever to get here.

When will I get to go to school?
When will my teeth fall out?
When will my hair get long?
When will I learn to read?
When can I start doing "X" by myself?

I am so relieved to be able to tell you that the time has arrived. Go for it. I know you will, like a bull at a gate. May my mothers heart survive this growth spurt. x

Two thousand and twelve


Hello 2012. So nice to see you! 

I've got a whole lot of happiness planned for this year, so I hope you're on board with that. I also have a bit of work to do, getting stuff finished that has been on my To Do list for too long. I also plan on having fun and being happy. Being productive whilst also simplifying. I plan on looking into his eyes when he's talking to me so he know's I'm listening and I care about what he has to say. That I care about him. I plan on reading their books each night at a measured pace, enjoying the moment, rather than rushing through them so I can put my tired feet up. I plan on giving myself lots of breaks, especially in my head when my standards are getting to unrealistic. I plan on helping my eldest prepare her little self for the rigours and joys of starting school, whist remembering to breathe and enjoy it too. Oh and I plan on saying a whole lot more of Yes. To the kids, to myself. Why not, I say...

So there's lots of plans 2012. You'd better get with it so you can keep up with me. Lets not disappoint eachother. Here's to a great year. x
