Day In My Life

From the moment you (Nixie) wake up you are still in full force all about dinosaurs and talking about carnivores and herbivores, talking about how birds don't have teeth and how the triceratops take care of it's babies and a million other things, you are absolutely fascinated by dinosaurs, it's all you're interested in talking about! …

You (Forrest) and I got up first and headed downstairs only to find Kayleigh, Rex and Zach already in the lounge, turned out they didn't have the best first night and sweet little Rex couldn't sleep so they all ended up sleeping downstairs! …

And it is that time again for another entry for Artefact motherhood, a collaboration of artists & mothers from around the world..It was such an amazing day, I had been looking forward to this experience for such a long time! It was day 2 of our first camping trip as a family of four. Even though I barely got any sleep I woke up feeling so good, being out in the woods has a way of always making me feel better.

It was a crazy long day! We headed to London so I could collect my passport & then followed by a trip to the Natural History Museum so that you could get your Dino fix and where I had one of the scariest moments of my life where I thought I had lost you! And on the way home we had car problems and spent a lot of time at service stations which made it so that we didn't get home until close to 1am! …

It wasn’t a very nice day out, very dark, wet and gloomy so we ended up having a relaxing day at home being creative and playing.

I've been so conscious of the passing of time again, I want to just savour, slow down and cherish this time in our lives. You are growing up so quickly and it feels so bittersweet. I've been getting these lumps in my throat and knots in my stomach when I look at you and your sister sometimes... …

You ended up having so many great experiences!....but i think your favourite thing was building your bug hotel, you really seem to enjoy working with wood and loved using the different kinds of drills including the powered drill and getting your face painted. If you could have your face painted everyday you’d be the happiest little girl! You just get so relaxed and love the feeling of it all, it is so sweet, you always almost fall asleep. …

After your morning Rugby class we headed to one of our favourite spots in the woods. It was so beautiful and so peaceful where we were, it was the perfect place to be during a heatwave. We had fun playing in the streams and playing with bubbles and then enjoyed the company of our sweet friends who came to join us. Zoryan had Borsch and you had the sweetest expression on your face and looked so left out like you were thinking but what about me?!?! Nixie had your back though and asked Elina if you could have some too, I love how she’s always looking out for you and thinking about you and your needs, your relationship and connection is really blossoming!! …
