Jumped in front of the camera for this one, which does not happen often enough. But she made me a mama, and it's these moments together that I will treasure the most.

Decades from now when she is all grown up, I want her to see this photo not just as a photo of us but to realise that everything about this photo IS us. She is my little pixie girl, I am her Mama. We love so deeply and are bonded forever as mother and daughter. This is us in our element; in nature, the outdoors. This is her Mama, always with camera bag strapped to her and with hands free; outstretched and ready to comfort and love at any moment.
That no matter where she is and no matter how little she remembers; no matter how much has changed between us, she looks at this and sees the essence of who we once were and feels the depth of it all.
I pray that THAT is what she sees when she looks at this, all grown up and wherever life takes her. That no matter where she is and no matter how little she remembers; no matter how much has changed between us, she looks at this and sees the essence of who we once were and feels the depth of it all.

I wish I was one of these super artsy Pinterest girls, who can knit, stitch, draw, and do cute stuff with toilet paper rolls...
I wish I was one of these super artsy Pinterest girls, who can knit, stitch, draw, and do cute stuff with toilet paper rolls...but clearly I'm not. I'm too impatient and will stop trying the second it gets difficult (one of my best qualities, I know), BUT I made this reading lamp myself and I'm super proud of it (let's just ignore the fact, that every 7 year old could've made it, okayplease?).

Worth The Mess

On Tuesdays we paint — which, to my surprise, has become one of my favourite activities. Because even though I've been an early years teacher for six years, paint has not been my favourite art medium to pair with toddlers - and entirely because of the mess, which I think we as parents often let get in the way of letting our children fully experience things.

It took having my own child to let the joy of painting outweigh the inevitable mess to follow (an outlook that I could stand to apply to so much more in life). Now I look forward to Tuesdays (and the occasional day in-between), seeing her focus as she moves the brush across the paper purposefully, or fully immersed in simply dipping her brush from paint to water. So worth the mess.
