It’s Shae-Shae’s birthday month! My little girl is turning 2 in less than 3 weeks, so we are in full party planning mode. She is going to have a Rainbow party and I am having so much fun with the theme. Shae is really growing up fast now, she is getting so tall and she is repeating words left, right and center. She is a little charmer and has everyone firmly wrapped around her little pinky, especially her Oupa. She developed an amazing bond with him in particular and whenever we drive somewhere she will ask if we’re going to her beloved Oupa. She is very clever with the way she figures things out… it’s true what the paed said – she’s got beauty and brains :p
Talking about birthdays, we’re not too far off from a certain blue-eyed boy’s 6th birthday either. Jamie’s order is in for a Ninja Turtles birthday. He got such a fabulous report after the first term, with mostly scores of sixes. He is also very eager to loose another tooth, possibly because of the pending tooth fairy visit haha! So he has been wriggling his tooth, which also has another shark tooth growing out behind. Jamie is talking my ears off my head these days, oh the stories he tells! He makes me laugh so hard sometimes with his stories and how fast he’s telling them. He is going through a period where he gets scared of sleeping in his own room and he keeps us up at night… really hope this period passes quickly. Have tried a night light, monster spray, a reward chart and a mattress in our room already and nothing works. Never a dull moment, hey!
Otherwise our household is busy as ever… hubby is having an extremely busy period at work and as a bonus he still has to move offices too. Work is keeping me busy too, plus I took up running since December (I write mostly on my fitness blog about this), but I have to mention that I earned my first medal this weekend 🙂 even if it was just for the Spar Women’s race.
Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day. Shae made me the most precious hand print flower pot and poem with her finger prints in coloured paint. Jamie gave me a painted sun with “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine” printed on the back, “love bubbles” which I still don’t know what to do with and the most awesome key ring which has his fingerprints in a shape of a heart on. Hubby surprised me with a lovely voucher at Jewels & Lace and croissants with Nutella for breakfast 🙂
I am a very lucky and blessed mommy to have such gorgeous, kind-hearted children. Yes, I am a tired, overworked mom, but my job as their mom is a rewarding one. They are responsible for so many smiles on my face and makes my life whole and perfect. I would not trade them for all the peace, money or sleep in the world.
