This small town life…

For the first time in over a month (or has it been months?), Bo and I have had a week without any drama, without any one elses agenda, without plans or events or anything. Just us. Just existing. Pottering around the house. Cooking. Laughing. Watching movies. Reading stories. Playing with blocks. Building stuff, breaking stuff.. eating snails even-when-mama-says-no… good times.

Despite the crappy crap that is still going on in the background of my mind and my life and my love and my everything, it’s been a pretty good week for us. Bo’s sleeping is absolutely shocking again but is slowly slowly getting better. Touch wood. Seriously… it can’t get much worse can it? So I’ve ordered a stay-at-home-no-trips-to-the-city few weeks so we can rest up and get settled and hopefully Bo will start sleeping a bit better again… which would mean I can sleep – which is something I am in desperate need of. Aren’t we all?

Bo is also in an intensely I-want-my-mama-on-top-of-me-or-else stage… which is exhausting, and HOT, you know, given the heat wave and all that… those of you in the northern hemisphere, it’s bloody stinking hot down here in Australia this week and is set to get hotter soon. But she’s noisy cute and we have air con in one room of the house, so it’s all good… except when it’s all screamy and squealy… then I kinda wish I had ear plugs.


Much love going out right now from us to you. Thank you so much for all of your responses and love and love LOVE LOVE to my recent post. Keep them coming. Just fill in that little comment box, you know you want to… Let’s start building an awesome non-judgemental space where we can ALL voice our opinions on things that are important to us. It’s the only way we can all learn, right? It’s great to know more about what you want to read! And all the love, did I mention the love? It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy. Big ups to that!

It’s funny, looking back over this weeks photos. In 90% of them Bo is smiling. I took 500 photographs this week and almost all of them have my gorgeous daughters smile. It must’ve been a great week for her, I’m so lucky to have such a little beautiful little noise magic maker in my life.

Have a bright and sparkly weekend everyone, hope it’s inked in colour, filled with happiness and generally fun and light and beautiful.

    Bettina - Bo’s week looks quite similar to Eamon’s. Mostly wearing only a nappy or nothing at all. Insisting on sitting on me ALL DAY despite this ridiculous heat, oh and not sleeping, because there is too much crawling / exploring / eating dirt to be done.ReplyCancel

    Nina - That is so funny that Bo drives you crazy because I seriously thought that only I could be driven stark raving insane by my 27 month old dumpling. I’m glad to know that I am not alone (or a bad mother) to think that my daughter is only an angel while she naps/sleeps.ReplyCancel
