I love shoes, but the last four years, staying home with my boys, my shoes are grey and worn out!
For 2012 I am proud of the fact that my boys and I smile EVERY day, no matter how the day is!
(Yes, we do have other emotions as well!)
I Love You
My three boys ❤
I don’t know what went wrong, but one day me and my youngest son came to Open kindergarten. He was so angry, crying and did not want to get undressed. Nothing was good enough to calm down! At the end, I just had to let him go and «cry off». Usually, when he’s in that mood, I come to get him after a few minutes, I lift him up, hug him and everything is OK. This time, I was a bit worried when i didn’t hear him crying. I went looking for him:
He had found my phone, and sat playing and sulking on the most «natural» place to hide away when you need peace and quiet:
The world’s most beautiful place, with lots of good memories.
This place reminds me of my fantastic grand mother, loved and deeply missed!
BirthdayGreat turning five!When my son turned four, the very next day he started counting days for his next birthday …The day after his fifth birthday he proclaimed he did NOT want to turn six … because he don’t want to go to school … 😉
