HAPPY BIRTHDAY My Atlas – just quietly I think you’re hot!!
This is ‘week one’ and I have consciously tried to say ‘yes’ instead of ‘wait’, ‘not at the moment’, or ‘another day’.
Flip and I did a code cracker together (until I got stuck). Good practice for writing his letters in small squares.
I said ‘yes’ and sat without doing anything else (washing, baking, dinner, folding…) and watched a wonderful dance performance
to Hi 5 (out from the library)
I played football outside instead of leaving it to Daddy and suggesting a story instead (yes I am an inside-y kind of mama)
And we did our first art project – the magic of water-colour pencils. Our theme was what we are looking forward to in 2012.
Bounce drew ‘the school near kindy’
and Flip ‘ the camp ground in Dunedin’
and I did the butterflies at the museum in Dunedin. (we are looking forward to our holiday!)
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.
