He is everything, all at once. (+ happy weekend!)

There are many aspects of the Monsters temperament and personality that I find challenging, even exasperating at times, never more so than lately. He is loud, persistent, inquisitive, demanding, sensitive, and seems to have boundless energy. Yet I know these same qualities are part of the reason I think he is just the most wonderful child and will, with a little guidance, grow in to a phenomenal adult.

The above photo, to me, just sums up Lachie. Having climbed on to our dining table and being told in no uncertain terms to ‘get down’, he ignores my best serious mumma voice (which I must admit, needs a little work) and instead breaks out his favourite dance moves. Frustrating, yes. Totally loveable, absolutely.

And that, is our life with the Monster. One step away from a breakdown, but laughing all the same.


Have a beautiful sunshine-y weekend!!

Some links from around the traps:

Margarita cupcakes? Yes please.

The Monster absolutely needs one of these capes and masks. The most stylish superhero outfit going.

These DIY plates turn dinnertime in to storytime.

Loving these bright cheery prints from Beneath the Sun
