A Very Shiny Sunday

I have had stuff on my mind.
I haven't been sleeping well.
I didn't sleep well last night.
I slept in.
But I woke up to this





I haven't been feeling very nice about myself but I figure If I can produce a sweet SWEET little girl who will do this for her tired grumpy mummy I am probably not a complete bitch.
So that is it!
I am forgiving myself.
And I am returning to worrying about what is important.
These chaps.

Thank you to my dear dear friends who have been so kind. I don't deserve you but I am so glad I have you.

  1. What a darling girl you have.
    I must say I don't comment much, but yours is one blog I always read and hang out for the next "issue." I admire you and your family values so much (and also your adoration of Oliver+S!)

  3. Love your post, Nicole!
    Raising a family like yours is quite a big acomplishment! Your children are adorable (Lidia is such a precious little girl).
    I know I feel like that every once in a while (sometimes a bit too often), and it's so good to have a supporting family. It really means the world :)
    Take care and enjoy your sunday! (We'll enjoying ours in the beach. Creating memories).

      Thank you,tiredness does not bring out the best in me I am afraid. Moments like this are wonderfully affirming that I am at least on the right track.

  4. You have such sweet, kind, and caring kids! They learned this from their mommy. I think that you have always been a wonderful friend! Everyone has a few off days, even mommies.

  14. I can only echo everyone else, your kids are just awesome sauce and they get that from their special mummy! You have a great bunch, and you are correct, focus on what is important. (As hard as that can be sometimes, I know!)
