“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”


ethan:  i realised this week that sometimes two 9 year old boys are better than one, especially when daddy is away.  i love seeing you play with your mates like this; dirty, independent, loud, rough, but also fun, kind, sharing and relishing the camaraderie a like-minded friend brings.  don’t grow up too quickly number one x


nixon:  you have chosen a rough path this week, refusing your afternoon nap 5 days out of 7 and waking me all through the night!  your big denim blue eyes kinda make up for it though.  how about some hair before your birthday?  we don’t actually have a hose in the house, that’s a nixon-special edition, more fun than any toy that cost money, guaranteed!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
