A day to celebrate

a day to celebrate This week we have really taken advantage of the beautiful weather and spent everyday outdoors. It has been so refreshing to have the sun full of heat and filling us up with that very much-needed vitamin D! My skin has actually got some colour to it now, so I am really feeling summery. I feel good!

I just love capturing pictures of my children especially ones of our day-to-day life. Ones that are real, natural and not posed those are the photos I love looking back on, where my children are running free, and enjoying life, like today enjoying the bright beautiful rays from the sun!

I also wrote a heartfelt guest post on my son over at Mental Parentals, which was featured today. Thank you so much for having me Steph. Writing about My First… Boy was something I really enjoyed.

Have you had a son? I wonder if you could relate to the list I made. I am sure there is so much to add. But I listed my top ten, in no particular order. #6 is something I really didn’t expect when having a son:

6. He will start touching his willy before he even starts walking

I can rest assured, if Archie is naked, his hands will be touching, pulling, or squeezing at that interesting thing that dangles between his legs.”

But actually it makes me laugh so much, especially when he is running around the house in his birthday suit with his hands down there. He can get away with it now while he is little… so I will let him, and yes, I will be there giggling behind him because I am his ever doting mum, and I think anything he does is so very cute, even if it is grabbing his dangly bits!

A part from the guests post and our day with a lovely friend of mine and her two children, I also found out Sophia was accepted into her first choice of school. Which without any doubt I am over the moon about. In fact I remember thinking when she was born, (as these things run through your head when you have your first child) that I wanted her to go to this particular school when she was older.

The reality of it has smacked me right in the face today, struck me like a fiery bolt of lightening. I am in shock, but it is good shock, I am over the moon for her, and so excited for the future for her and for us all. I’m smiling right now as I write this, with a big toothy grin (albeit with massive black bags under my eyes.. I need sleep!) I really am so happy for my girl. I want the absolute best for her, as all us parents want for our children, and I am pleased as punch we got our first choice.

I hope you have all had the news you wanted, and even if it wasn’t the news you wanted I hope at least that the school your little one was accepted to is actually the better choice for your child for what you dream and wish for them. Good wishes to you all

    Ah congrats – waiting on school admissions can be a pain and a worry. I’m waiting on both a primary school and a post-primary school decision to be made. Fingers crossed. #binkylinky

    Great news about the school. We’re still waiting to hear, but it’s for nursery school so I think we find out next week. Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky I hope you’ll link up again next week 🙂
