“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012.”
Che: With practice, comes confidence. “I want to ride my bike every day, always.”
Poet: Why am I not surprised that her favourite room in the house is the one room where she isn’t supposed to be. I gasped in horror during the week as I heard, for the first time: “Mum, Poet’s in my room! Get out of my room Poe!” Oh dear, it’s begun.

    I have recently found your blog thru Hugo & Elsa. Love the words you wrote about your visit to Michele's place…the feeling you created with your words was so strong, that i just wished i too was there to smell, taste & take notes on how to produce such beautiful heart-warming food.
    Also wanted to say you are doing such a special photo journal of your children…..our 2 children are young adults now, and oh how i wish that i had taken more photos of their journey thru childhood, as one seems to blink and they are all grown-up. Jenny (Melbourne)

    Ha Che sounds like Oli. "Elke keeps losing all my trains", "Elke broke my Lego ship", "Elke ripped my…" you get the idea! But never fear. They do also play very sweetly together. The joys of siblings ; )

    The spotty helmet is incredibly cool.

      And I also meant to add, we have put a gate on Ronan's door so he can setup his trains and special toys in his room and play without the door shut, and without little hands of destruction…it has been a life saver!

    I hear the same at home. I have 2kids : daughter 4years old and son 19months and the baby is always in his sister's room … And she calls him "destructor" ha ๐Ÿ˜‰ but anyway they love each other and also play together most of the time, don't worry

    Oh your children are the sweetest! Sofia is always somewhere she shouldn't be. We have her toys all laid out nicely for her to play with, yet she'll still go to the cupboard and pull out the pots and pans. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Beautiful portraits! x ๐Ÿ™‚
