Saturdays. A day where activities are usually dictated by kids organised ‘things’ – so things like dancing, swimming, birthday parties, hair cuts, and library book returning. I know even in 10 years time even I will look back and miss this. Right now is probably one of the best times of my life – days bursting with activity, boring bits like washing, cleaning and groceries, and fun things like baking, cuddles (un-prompted), giggles and story telling. Right now – it is happening. Some days I need to remember this more!
Today has already been a flurry of activity. I am onto the third load of washing already (boring bits!) and the kids have finished dancing for the day. Getting the girls hair ready is always something that takes me a bit of time –
Miss Caitlyn has curly wurly hair. A mane of thick strawberry blonde hair that when brushed straight is half way down her back, but otherwise bounces up defiantly to her shoulders. Today we had to had to have two buns. Like Anna (from Frozen).
Then there is the polar opposite –
Miss Emma with her mix of colours (mostly brown, light brown and blonde) and dead straight hair almost to her bum! She has ‘a bigger bun than me Mummy’ (Caitlyn) and is not the greatest with sitting still when getting her hair brushed.
