7 things I did today

Day 2 of this long weekend so far was spent…

#1. Agonising over two new scratches on my little boy’s nose… “Hooooooney, trim those nails!”

#2. Letting Nathan have a run on the high-chair for the first time... Although he’s not quite mastered the sitting-up-on-his-own skill yet, he was able to sit up with plenty of support from the Ikea high-chair-cushion-thingy accessory – I think the padding provides a kind of bumbo-seat effect

#3. Exploring my newly discovered playground – pinterest (you need an invitation to join – I have five to give out if you’re interested)

#4. Trying out a tomato soup recipe I found in a magazine – just for fun as our household is not generally a fan of tomato soup

#5. Enjoying a slice of sticky date pudding drizzled over with butterscotch caramel, which I made using this recipe

#6. Getting affirmation that I’m now back to my pre-pregnancy weight – discovered I’m able to fit my ao dai again which I bought while on holiday in Vietnam seven years ago and wore as one of my outfits in my wedding studio photo shoot

#7. Composing this blog post for your reading pleasure.

Hope you people are enjoying your weekend or long weekend for those in Australia.

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
