Tadpole came home from school today with two awards – a medal for sporting achievement and a plaque for academic achievement. He is one of only eight children in his class to get the plaque for exceeding expectations. As you can see from the photograph, he’s very proud of himself – and we’re incredibly proud of him too!
- Sweet, Blessed Sleep
It seems like Choochie may be turning the corner on the subject of sleep. Till now, he’s barely slept, day or night, which has resulted me being a total Mombie for nine months. The last week or so, however, he has improved greatly, meaning that I am looking and feeling a little less like an extra in a George A Romero film. Long may it continue to improve, because I’ve actually forgotten what it feels like to sleep for more than a couple of hours straight.
- A Good, Home-Cooked Meal
Meatballs in my own, home-made awesome sauce with some pasta and a little cheese sprinkled on top. It’s delicious, if I say so myself, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The truth is, I love cooking, and I love sitting down to enjoy a home-cooked meal with my family – it is one of my joys in life.
