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


ethan: you were so inspired by ben smith’s amazing tackle in the 2nd all blacks test against england that one of your favourite new pastimes is watching youtube videos of try-saving tackles.  i guess there is worse things you could be watching right?  nix just wants to watch big red car……


nixon: trucks, tractors and diggers.  all day.  every day. broommmm. i love it.  luckily – for you – there are many diggers working across the street from us so you can get your digger fix on a daily basis.  it’s pretty cute that one of your first words is “digg-ah”.  you are a loud chatty wee thing my darling x

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.

  1. Love your photos Melissa, they capture such sweet moments of your boys so lovingly xx
