I took this this morning.

Ella dressed in her sister’s hand me downs. The much coveted dungarees are finally hers.

The desire to have bunches has arrived and the need to disagree with everything, shout NO a lot and slam doors come hand in hand with lovely cuddles, profuse love and affection.

To say that raising two year olds is hard work is like saying that if you put a tea bag & milk in boiling water you might get a nice drink.

We all know it’s hard work but Jeeeeesus. Must they!

The look on her face says it all. She wants the picture – she asked for the picture to be taken but she can’t possibly look like she’s enjoying it – cos that would be too easy.


I went to my mate’s house on Friday night, to help out for the night with Baby Oliver Joe. A four week old baby with a preference for boobs and late nights.

God, boys never change huh?

Anyway – I helped out for a few hours. Did some feeds, changed pooey bottoms, rocked, soothed, cuddled, paced, cooed and cajoled, cleaned, made tea, watched my dinner go cold and waited for 45 minutes before I could go for a wee.

The boy was cute – but hard work? Yes.

Broody? Not so much.

Doesn’t take much to separate the desire to have another baby with the desire to cuddle someone else’s! And then give it back.

Ha.. don’t hold your breath for number three!
