Squeeee this week has been all about me! Well as much about me as life with one husband working away and three boys, 6 and under can be. I have come from a family that love to celebrate and any excuse will do. We love Birthdays, Christmas, Births, you name it it is an excuse to get together eat, drink and have a great time. Since having kids I try very hard to make special traditions for each occasion. A celebration that is fun, loving and all about being a family. This week is the best of them all, as it is all about me.
I spent the afternoon in Wentworth’s classroom on Friday and boy was I pampered. His amazing teacher had set up a nail bar, hair styling salon, massage chairs and a cafe. Wentworth who is a huge schmooza at the best of times, was over the moon to take care of his mum. He painted my nails with gold glitter polish, decorated my hair with feathers, gave me the worlds shortest massage and sat with me while I had a snack. He could not have been more loving and cute if he tried. It was the best mothers day ever to watch Wentworth listen and follow his teachers instructions and most of all to see how proud he is of his mum.
I do how ever think my mothers day was short lived! I am up for an 8am start to footy in the morning. We then are home to clean out and pack Ava, the Kombi, as we are off next week for our first trip in months. Who ever would have thought all those months ago when this all began that I would be looking forward to a camping trip. I am however so excited to get on the road for the week and explore somewhere new together with Steve and the boys. To be all together in the Kombi, the boys free to play and explore. The boys are jumping out of their skin to hit the road again, even if only for a week.
I cant believe how much life can change in 1 year. Xavier will now talk to people. Wentworth is learning to read. Mak can ride a 2 wheel scooter. Steve loves spending time with all of us together this includes cleaning , washing etc. I am looking forward to camping. Boy have we come a long way!
Until next week xoxoxoxxoxoxoxo
