My birthday messenger

Today is my dad’s 60th birthday. Unfortunately we are all the way here and he’s way over in Malaysia and we won’t get to see him for another four weeks.

Fortunately I had a brainwave and had the sudden inspiration to use my son as the key messenger using the wonderful world of digital technology.

My idea was to get him to hold up a happy birthday sign, look straight at the camera and flash one of his brilliant smiles. So simple and clever right? I was sure my dad would love it. However as with most things, the practical application of an idea is where the challenge lies.

Anyway I thought I’d share a little photo montage of our attempts to get Nathan to perform…

It also doesn’t help that I don’t have a great camera. However the idea didn’t turn out to be an actual failure. We I picked the last picture in the montage to post up on Facebook as a birthday greeting. With practice, I’m sure Nathan' will soon be an expert birthday messenger.

Anyway, Happy Birthday dad! Lots of love, hugs and kisses from the three of us in Perth.

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.
