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


nixon: cheeky chops.  you were playing for ages with your trucks, quite independently.  i just sat and watched and took a thousand pics of you. just our standard morning really!  you are walking everywhere you can now, only crawling when you haven’t anything to pull up on, you are steady and getting faster by the day.  i think we have a toddler on our hands x player-of-theday-best-nest-mummy-blog

ethan: player of the day for the third time this season, a rare game when the sun was shining, it was warm and nix and i joined your dad on the sidelines to watch.  you have had a wonderful season {thank goodness}, your coach called you tony woodcock the 2nd and your proud mama’s heart went boom!

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.
