this saturday i'm grateful for... backyard picnics

It is the weekend already? Oh my! If I pause for a moment, I can remember some wonderful moments in the blur...

  1. Backyard picnics. This week I had the joy of three extra little munchkins in our home. The weather was so divine, we decided to have a backyard picnic. The kids were excited, and I was able to capture some of the lovely moments.
  2. Toddler dates. My toddler enjoyed his very first babycino this week. I've been surprised that it has taken this long for us to have this sort of one-on-one time. Plus he loved the babycino and cupcake so much, we might just have to do it again.
  3. Reminders about small people. This week one of my favourite bloggers posted a gorgeous list of things to remember when parenting. It's been printed and reminds me of all the wonderful ways to love my children. One of the sentences filled with wisdom was remember how really small they are. It has given me so much to think about this week. It's a danger when we treat our children like big boys and girls, when really they are still so young, vulnerable and precious. I'm guilty of making my eldest grow up too quickly. These words also help me to remember that tomorrow they will never be as small as they are today.

Happy Grateful Day.

Why not celebrate your gratefuls with the lovely Maxabella...
