No Front Teeth
Guess who lost his 2nd front tooth this morning. Those gums are so swollen, ready for the new huge choppers to come down. It almost looks painful! And tonight, he is all smiles, ready for the tooth fairy to come.

The Day After

Yesterday was such a fun day, the kids were running around outside in t-shirts and shorts with their cousins all day. Silly me should have realised that my kids (always) get sick if there is even a hint of a chill in the air and they are underdressed. So today, Luca has woken with a barking seal Croup cough, and Remi has a runny nose (he is bound to get Croup later in the week for sure). I think it will be a day of stories and movies and grumpy boys.

A Little Celebration

Luca will be turning 7 in a couple of weeks, Oscar was 12 a couple of weeks ago, and Dad turned 72 on the 1st of August. It was a lovely day to get the family together to celebrate for the 3 of them. The kids all had tons of fun together, everyone got along, and the sun even came out. The BBQ lunch was delicious, and it was lovely seeing everyone and having a chat and a laugh! I love a bit of family time...

Luca wants to have some friends join him for a bowling party for his birthday in 1 month. We thought we would go and try it out with the kids to see if they actually like it. We all had fun, so the party is booked in for his birthday. I had to limit it to 8 friends, the kids parties are starting to get out of control!
