Loving, not loving lately…

Loving a Daddy buying flowers for his girls, just because…

Sophie’s favourite colour is yellow…

And Charotte loves to experiment with colour, watching and waiting, green, purple, blue and red…

Not loving cleaning up a paint trail in the laundry after Sophie’s finished painting pebbles.

Loving walks in the rain on a Saturday afternoon with Alice and Charlotte, and the excitement of hearing a giant squid had been washed ashore… but not loving that it was washed out to sea before we could see it.

Loving a Toy Story 3 lego kit that kept Sophie amused for hours…

Loving Alice’s new toy that gives Mummy and Daddy a few hands free moments to put the hoover round, cook the dinner and make the lunches…

Not loving Saturday morning’s that start off grumpy, but loving it when they end positively with fun family time at the local pool and Alice taking her first dip in the pool…

… and has a power nap straight after before stealing the crust off Charlotte’s sourdough bread,

Loving making stick houses in a local surf cafe in Lyall Bay…

Not loving cleaning up a ripper of a pooey nappy after three day’s of nothing!

Not loving severe sleep deprivation making me absent minded, incoherent and more inclined to blow my top when having to ask dear Miss 4 to tidy up her toys, brush her teeth (for the 10th time) and get dressed.

Loving dear Miss 7 doing everything independently, including making her bed, breakfast & packed lunch without having to be asked.

Loving the confidence I have that dear Miss 4 will get there in the end and not loving (or even wanting to think about) the fact that Alice will require years of training to get to where Miss 7 is at – but will hopefully learn quickly πŸ™‚

‘Loving, Not Loving Lately’ was inspired by Simone at Great Fun 4 Kids.
