I Blinked..

1st February 2015

Today I realised how fast time does fly.  I had minimal warning, thanks to a change in legislation very late last year, which meant that the trio were actually eligible this year for school instead of next year.  I was not all together prepared for them to start school this year – don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely ok with it, as I think it will be a massive benefit to them, but I had worked on Kindy (again) this year,  and Prep for 2016.  So this week, they started school.  Three little Preppies and a Grade Three’er.  Feels as though I blinked and it has all happened so fast.

Actually…

18th June 2014

Life around here lately seems to be focused on words.  Which is fine, as I am a bit of a word nerd.  We still have “seriously” featuring heavily in the rotation of daily ranting.  But now, we have a new contender –  “Actually Mummy…..”.  I must hear that at least 50 times a day.  Usually when I am being corrected by one of the four who believe quite firmly that they are indeed correct.  The topic can range from anything to do with cake being good for you because is like fruit, right through to the ‘real’ meaning of words (like doppelganger!).

Remember those ‘bad’ days?

7th May 2014

Friday I had one of *those* days.  One that felt like it was never going to end, and one where I was fighting an uphill battle against four little humans, gravity, and well just about anything that I tried to accomplish.

Normally I do our families memory keeping predominantly through Project Life and this blog.  I also have email addresses set up for all the kids (all just moloney._____@gmail.com) where I send them an email about something (even mundane) they have done with a picture and sometimes just a story.  In any case, I will hand over the reigns of the addresses to them when they are older.  Not sure if it is an 18th Birthday moment or not.  I have been doing it for about a year now, and love it.  I hope the kids do as well.  Anyway, I digress!  Mainly our week is documented through photos and words.  I like to add in small tiny humanism’s.  For example, yesterday, Brendan said he couldn’t go to kindy because….wait for it….he could not feel his legs.  I lost it laughing at him!  That right there is what I love recording and keeping a moment captured for all of us to appreciate and laugh, cry or cherish in times to come.
