the quiet times


the cute bits

and the sweet bits

I know it’s one of those kids posts, but these last couple of weeks, these two have made me smile, made me laugh, made me cry but most importantly they have made me LOVE being their mum…thanks you two ♥

You know what I mean don’t you?

Hope you have had a good week filled with lots of grateful moments.

  • So sweet! Those pictures are the dearest memories. It's so clear these are two happy, happy kids. My kids are adolescents now but some pictures of them when they were about the age of your children are still hanging in the hall and these pictures still put a smile on my face when I look at them.
    Enjoy this time with your children Cathie!

  • Oh yes, children are certainly worth being grateful for! I love the way your two look so happy together – the little hand holding pic and the lollypop smiles are my faves. I also spied one of our favourite places to visit when we're in Melb. Have a fantastic Sunday Cathie. xx

  • What beautiful photos. (I love their coats too. WitcheryKids? I bought the same jacket for my eldest boy, and he hated it. Such a shame, because it looks divine on your son.) You have beautiful kids, and so glad that you adore all the big (and little) things about them.
