The front door opens with a creek, I step a foot inside the hall, my head still spinning with the work I just left behind and then I hear it. I hear faint voices, muted laughter and an echo, which teamed with the open stair gate in front of me beckons me up the stairs, my tired legs and little feet can barely make it up the 13 soft carpet covered steps before those little voices turn into excited shouts “Mum, Mum, Mum, Mama, Mama, Mama”. I made it to bath time. Continue reading →
When I was pregnant with R I worried alot about the age gap, about the fact that at just turned 4 years old E was already an old soul, very grown up and that maybe due to a loss in between I had left it too late for them really to bond. That they would be into different things, at a different time in their life and that it would be like parenting only children – twice over! Continue reading →
I am a little late with my siblings post, I actually have lots of photo’s of my Little Ladies together this month thanks to school holidays, Easter, lighter evenings and the milder weather. I have just neglected to find the time to write the post! At the moment it is actually pretty difficult to get a picture of one without the other as they are constantly together, of course they rarely look in the same direction or are busy running after/into one another but they are just the best of friends and I love watching the bond they have grow, more than anything in the world.

I am a little late writing this post. I had grand plans of taking some photo’s and writing over the weekend yet here I sit Monday morning at the computer! The Mr headed off to work at 7.30am as usual after a week off, frost on the ground and leaving a sleeping family behind the locked door. Not before he had made milk and tea for us and got breakfast out and ready though.
I knew the sibling experience would be great, I have siblings, I have sisters. But I never knew just how great it would be to be the mother in this scenario. It is the most exciting thing to witness and be part of and feels like a huge privilege that I get to watch. I just cannot wait to see it evolve. Yes, there will be ups and downs but I hope they are friends, I hope that when they are grown they will need each other, they have each other and they support one another through life. There really is nothing like the sibling relationship. The protection is fierce. Having a sibling is the best. Continue reading →
