Week 41 Year 2

I looked up into the tree and saw a lone crow staring back at me. I have always loved crows and got really happy and took a few steps closer and looked into her eyes and invited her to come down to us, I even said to you Nixie how I wished she would just come down and say hi to us! And I kid you not about 10 seconds later that is exactly what she did (you insisted this crow was a she)! You had some crumbs in your hands from Forrest's biscotti which the crow loved, she was even eating directly out of your hands! …

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!

Week 25 Year 2

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! …

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. …

Week 20 Year 2

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!! …

Yesterday you turned four. I cannot quite believe it. Four years I have been a mumma, I still remember the first time we met as if it were yesterday.

You are the greatest spiritual guide I’ve ever had, you inspire me to become the best version of myself and I feel so blessed that you chose us as your parents. Thank you for being you. …
