Deep and Meaningful

How deep and meaningful can a deep and meaningful conversation be with a 3 year old? turns out our 3 year old can get very deep. After her shower last night we were talking about who i am and what she can call me. Sometimes she calls me Mum sometimes Sophie, and sometimes im Sophie Mum. Then she brushed my hair and i dried her hair and we had a beautiful happy night for once, with no screaming at me. It was nice!

Had our first Easter with our wee chicken! It wasn't quite what I expected, but nothing ever is. My parents and the pooch and my sister and her man came over and we all went out to the park/reserve thing for a picnic. We walked around one of the walkways, fed the ducks and played at the various playgrounds around the walkway. We had great weather and a lot of fun. And I was organised for once, I had wet wipes and water and tissues and hair ties and when people needed these things I had them! I’m learning, I have to carry everything in my bag, it’s full of things I never realised one could need on a daily basis, but oh boy are they life savers! From muesli bars to mini water bottles and a spare set of clothes for Miss M. Got some pretty cute pictures too, more to come...

Life Changing

Wow I haven't been here for a while! A lot has changed in my life since then. Moving cities twice and meeting new people, learning new things. Especially in the last 6 months- I have inherited a beautiful, amazing little girl. She has turned my life upside down, I’m doing things I didn’t see myself doing for a few years yet. It’s magical and terrifying and wonderful and I wouldn't change it for the world. As a couple she challenges us to our full extent. Making us work together like I never imagined. She is moving in with us full time in a few days and we have long discussions about where her home is and "are you my Mum?" and what about Nana (who she currently lives with the rest of the week when she is not with us.) Sometimes it’s Daddy and Mum and sometimes its Daddy and Sophie. I guess she is learning about my role in her life now that her Bio Mother is mostly out of the picture. I’m looking forward to the years we get to spend together as a family of 3... Maybe more in the years to come. But for now... Our first Easter together!
