Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.
Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.

It is nearly May and this will be my first post for the year. Apparently there are lots of friends and family out there who miss this blog and to be honest, I miss it too. So much has changed in the world of blogging over the last few years but before all that, and […]

Dance concert happiness.
Dance concert happiness.

They are happy because they both got trophies, I am happy because its over for another year! It was a wonderful day, both girls did so well, Stella was a star considering it was her first actual concert and Amy danced beautifully, so much improvement. We are very proud! (Also, I FINALLY mastered the dance […]

The Stage.
The Stage.

We are a few days away from the annual dance concert. This will be Stella’s first time dancing up on stage and she is pretty excited! Last year she was heartbroken not to be allowed to get up and have a go and I know she is going to love it. It helps she will […]

The girls.
The girls.

I really need to write a long post about our beautiful girls but right now my little old laptop is running red hot from the three photoshoots I am editing and I literally cannot do anything on it without it slowing down to practically backwards speed. So, it’s another iPhone post, thank goodness for iPhone […]

Little Athletics
Little Athletics

Amy has been doing Little Athletics for nearly two months now. Its once a week, on a Friday night, from 6pm until about 8.30pm and so far she loves it. She is one of the youngest in her age group of Under 7 Girls because the cut off is October. Strange that its different to […]

Living and growing
Living and growing

Amy came home from school last week with an ominous plastic bag. The dreaded “Life journal – living and growing” where each child gets a double page spread to fill with photos of their life and snippets of their personality. I have seen some of the other class’s journals and have been intimidated! Beautiful layouts, […]

Snaggle tooth
Snaggle tooth

Look who finally lost her top tooth! Its been wobbling like mad for weeks now and the last few days have been intense, I have taken lots of photos of her face with this little skew tooth sticking out because I knew how different she would look once it fell out. Sure enough we were […]

Amy’s sixth birthday party.
Amy's sixth birthday party.

I love to entertain, I love having friends round and cooking for them or baking for the kids morning tea. There is truth in the saying “you don’t know what you have till its gone” because it wasn’t until January this year that I realised just how much I need to have that social interaction […]

Amy, now you are SIX!
Amy, now you are SIX!

Happy sixth birthday my precious first born. It hardly seems possible that six years have passed since we met Amy for the first time. Last year I talked about how special five is, that last year before school begins. The year before last I talked about how being four was all about being full of […]

Her stage debut.
Her stage debut.

On Friday Amy made her stage debut presenting assembly at school. It has been long anticipated because the Year Ones in her composite class got to present quite early in Term 1 and Amy and her friends have been waiting their turn ever since! Not only was Amy first up but she had to present […]

Children and change.
Children and change.

How are the girls you ask? How did they feel about leaving our old house, do they love the new house? Has the transition been fraught with emotional distress or has it all been a big adventure? Well, firstly thanks for asking and secondly, the girls are doing really well. Remarkably well. In fact I […]

Another milestone!
Another milestone!

Amy has had her first wobbly tooth since her last day of preschool back in December. She has been very unsure of it and almost scared for it to fall out, convinced that it was going to hurt or sting so as a result she has hardly wobbled it at all. Amazing really that it […]

Time slips away.
Time slips away.

I know its been ages since I last posted, my reasons will become clear in time, for now, I need to record this moment. Today was Amy’s first day at primary school. As only Amy could do, she surpassed all my expectations and despite being too nervous to eat any breakfast, she was full of […]

Homebodies.
Homebodies.

Poor Ron had to go back to work today, its a bit of a reality check for all of us and Amy has been asking a lot of questions about how school is going to work. I know she is starting to think about all the changes coming up. I managed to talk her down […]

Dance concert – the one where my eyes were watery.
Dance concert - the one where my eyes were watery.

I know its a cliche to get all choked up when you see your kid up there on the stage, but it really does make me feel emotional. Last year I was anxious about how Amy would cope with all the new stuff that comes with the annual dance concert. Being dropped off in a […]

Then and Now.
Then and Now.
Milestones, beginnings, endings.

Tomorrow will be a special day in the White Household. Its Amy’s last day at preschool. It feels like yesterday that she was off for her first day. This is such a bittersweet milestone for us as parents and for me in particular. Our relationship with Amy’s little preschool has been such a wonderful one. […]

Angel.
Angel.

This time of year is fraught with emotion as it is. Now throw in a rare astrological event and an end of year preschool Christmas concert and its all too much to cope with. Amy is not herself, she sobbed desperately when we left her at preschool after her concert and this afternoon when I […]

Baby girl.
Baby girl.

Ok, I know, enough with the photographs! But its Friday night, its late, I am tired and I need to go to bed so that great blog post I have been writing about why swimming lessons make me feel like a successful Mother, will have to wait until I find some time to write. In […]

My beautiful girls.
My beautiful girls.

My beautiful girls, their relationship is growing and developing and they really do love each other. I have said it before, I can only hope that my girls will grow up to have the same kind of connection that I have with my sister. Love you Liv! Xx

School readiness.
School readiness.

Wow, way to go wordpress, I just typed out an awesome blog post and you ate it. Dammit. Now I have to try and remember all the brilliant things I said. November in Australia means school orientation for children starting their first year of primary school the following year. For those who don’t know, schools […]

My muse.
My muse.
Its that time of year again. Chop-chop!
Its that time of year again. Chop-chop!

Yes, haircut time! Both the girls were looking a bit unkept last week and as we head into the warmer months I really wanted to get their mops chopped for ease of washing and drying. Stella and I went into the hairdresser earlier in the week to make the appointments and Stella was not happy! […]

Amy’s 5th birthday party, again…
Amy's 5th birthday party, again...

On Sunday we celebrated Amy’s 5th birthday, again, this time with four of her friends from preschool. This is the first time Amy has had her own, special party and I had such fun planning it and putting it all together! It was lovely sharing the burden of organising the party with my Mum. We […]
