I read this article earlier today and it brought a tear to my eye.
This is something that always plays at the back of my mind – is my daughter safe? Am I doing everything possible as parent to make sure she is well protected? Which is why when I read about the PANTS campaign I just had to blog about it! I know it is something a lot of parents do already (and I’m possibly late to the PANTS campaign rule!) but for people like me that think oh my daughter is too young, well she isn’t! The difference between 2 and 3 is 365 days! So there’s no such thing as being too early to start practicing these rules.
I’ve been meaning to put up this video, even before my birthday, but finally getting around to it now!
This is what I go through everyday! Anjie is such a daddy’s girl so don’t be surprised shocked at what happens in this video! They really do mess around like this all day, it’s so funny to watch! Bless them both…
Hope you all are having a lovely week and catch up with you later!
Well technically it was yesterday but it’s never to late right?
It didn’t go quite as planned but it was lovely never the less! Got to spend time with my two favourite people in the world. And then Anjie sang happy birthday to me… Best. Gift. Ever!!! Continue reading →
First of all, happy anniversary to us! Abby and I got married this time 3 years ago, or as a friend of mine would say – 3 years don waka pass … It’s been awesome, fun, amazing, crazy, annoying, hilarious, blessed, fruitful, grateful, grace-filled, enlightening, eye-opening… (I could go on really) but in all, I’m so blessed to be married to this wonderful man I call my husband who never cease to amaze me in so many different ways and it’s even more exciting to know our best days are ahead of us… Amen!
Our traditional wedding in 2011
Alright! Moving on before I get too mushy mushy and burst into a song!
I thought I’d just talk generally about life with our 25 month old missy, with loads of pictures of course – Something I haven’t done in a bit! Continue reading →
Last week I blogged about Anjie starting her swimming lessons which was a disaster – partly my fault really! So to make sure I knew where I was going and didn’t get late this time I went on a re-con mission a couple of days before the swimming lesson and it took me only about 15 mins to get there! That works perfectly for me as I close 4pm, make a dash to pick Anjie and arrive at the swimming pool with about 10mins to change and get ready for the class!
I decided this would be the year Anjie got into swimming regularly!
We’ve gone swimming a couple of times since she was born and it was interesting… The first time I’d say she liked it-ish. She was about 5 months so what did she know, we just went there, we played in the water for a bit and got out. The 2nd time, she was just over a year and she wasn’t quite keen. I’m sure she spent more time walking around the pool than actually being IN the pool! But at least we sha got into the pool.
So 2014, I said let’s do it right! Because my daughter must know how to swim!!
What is starting to become a little trend for me it seems is to do something ‘different’ with my hair at the end of the year. Last year I had massive hair cut and got a new job, now that was pretty exciting! This year, I haven’t gotten a new job but I do have a new look, again! To be fair it’s not really a new look because I just coloured my hair, but it is quite a ‘radical’ colour (or so I’ve been told) and I LOVE it!
In the next few hours 2013 will be ‘all done’ and we’ll be making a fresh start in 2014!
2013 has been an amazing year and I’m thankful to God because He has been faithful! I know I’m blessed and that is that! I’m quite excited about 2014 and looking forward to the challenges and joys to come with it.
Before we end 2013 I thought I’ll add our december pictures, including a few from Anjie’s birthday and visits from family and friends. Thanks to everyone that came around and made Anjie’s birthday/Christmas awesome!! Love you guys!
