Do you see what I see….?

Ok, so the lyrics of a Christmas Carol have inspired me! It's funny what songs you find yourself singing at random times! But it's a good question! Although don't worry the answer isn't taking me down a Christmas inspired route with tinsel and bells, but rather to the mirror. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do… Continue reading Do you see what I see….?

Look at me!

Being the summer holidays we've been having a lot fun and amongst other summer activities we have explored a lot of different playgrounds. No matter the playground though, it is only a matter of time before my 3 year old is calling out to me to "Mummy, look at me! Look at me!" His enjoyment at the playground definitely… Continue reading Look at me!

And the soul felt its worth…

Beautiful Weeds

As we turned into our driveway, it seemed that my son and I noticed the length of the lawn at the same time. We had two very different reactions though. Mine was the obvious one - make mental note to talk to hubby about mowing the lawns! My 6 year old's was to shout gleefully… Continue reading Beautiful Weeds

Do you see what I see?

Things to children are never what they are to us. They see the world differently. That's certainly the case with my boys. Driving along the waterfront, to my 6 year old,  it's not Rangitoto Island we're viewing, it's Tracy Island, home to the Thunderbirds. It's not just a plain cardboard box, it's a briefcase for a super hero costume… Continue reading Do you see what I see?
