Sunday silliness

Attempting to get one photo to send to my sister … instead we got loads.

All silly. All fun. All filled with happiness and love.

We really are so lucky.

I can smell the warm

The warm weather is definitely with us in Sydney. Our frangipani tree seems to have sprouted leaves almost overnight, definitely within the past week they’ve been growing like crazy.

We got into the car one day this week and the air was warm … not the awful hot of mid-summer when you can’t touch anything without ouchies, rather the feeling of sliding into a warm tropical bath, which closes in on your senses.

I can smell the warm

I can smell the warm mumma.

That’s exactly it. Great observation Bubba.

I forgot not to

Love Bug, did you draw on your leg?

Oh mumma, I forgot not to.

Love Bug, did you put your books in your wardrobe?

I forgot not to put them in there.

Love Bug, are you jumping on my mattress on the floor {bed frame arriving this weekend}?

I forgot not to {giggle giggle}.

I forgot not to  I forgot not to

It seems I forgot not to has become the way to describe whatever it is that you’ve done wrong.

There are so many things I can forget not to do …

Dear George {yes, that one}

Ah, Mr Clooney.

Thank you.

Thank you for reminding the world that it is okay not to settle.

It is okay to hold out for that great love.

It is okay to be a hottie at 53 and marry a stunning, smart 36 year old.

In Italy.

dear george

Good plan, dear George … very good plan.

One I’d be okay to follow.

Just saying.

Oh the indignity

Oh the indignity of being the fuzzy sibling of a preschooler.

Queen Beary

While Beary looks almost resigned to being dressed up like Elsa {all the while being reminded that he is actually Sven!}, Bella seems fully aware of the shame.

Oh the indignity

Of course, she’d probably rather be a Queen {or even a Princess} than Olaf!

Is she looking in our window?

Seems the interwebs critters didn’t deliver this to some people when first posted …

Oh. My. Dog! Some days I wonder if she’s been looking in our window and then writes in the next couple of days addressing whatever is going on in our home.

Consider this a PSA {Public Service Announcement} – if you are a parent I can promise there will be a gem of wisdom in here for you; an aha moment.

You’re welcome!
