week sixteen


thatcher: hey i heard you was a wild one… i don’t know who is wilder, the boy or the monster on his t-shirt

marlow: it is never too early to get a girl into fur (faux, of course)

week 16/the 52 project


week fifteen

(so let’s just pretend that i’m not actually writing these entries about a year too late and that i have the power of super organisation, together with an unhealthy addiction to caffeinated beverages, and have actually been able to do it all – ha ha ha. the reality is it is now the 15th of march 2016 and i am relying on my failing memory to put together the remaining 38 weeks of the 52 week project – how sad are those odds right?!? anyhow, here i am now, so please forgive this frazzled mumma  if i accidentally get my dates slightly wrong or miss my littles’ milestones altogether, i am doing the best i can. as i think all us mummas have to remember, our best actually is good enough because our littles want us, they don’t want perfect)


marlow: bless her little heart – oh, to be so intensely satisfied by such simple things as a stick.

thatcher: the park life is the good life. this boy would live at the park if he could and braithewaite park in mount hawthorn is an absolutely favourite.

week 15/the 52 project

week thirteen

ah, easter in jurien bay. is there anything nicer? (well, it would have been nicer if i didn’t have to spend two of my four days away writing a 15 minute presentation on sexual violence and international law – massive debbie downer right there…) despite that slight blip in the weekend, we did still manage to spend a bunch of time with the family, head to the gloriously clear and inviting beach everyday (i may even have been convinced to jump off the jurien bay jetty at one point) and have a super fun easter egg hunt (so fun, in fact, that i forgot to take any photos).

marlow: seaweed. if it’s good enough for the japanese, it’s good enough for me.

thatcher: he would have spent all day running up and down the sand dunes if he could.
