nothing sweeter

Really, even at three and a half, he's still completely adorable when he takes a nap during the day. It doesn't happen that often anymore which is both good and bad I guess. Good because he can cope without it quite happily... and not so good because I really enjoy the peace and quiet!

I guess there's the added bonus that I can sneakily take his picture too ;o) One day soon the naps will be gone for good and he'll only sleep at night, in the dark, I won't be able to peek at him quite so easily then. I love how soft and warm he is, how he snuffles a little but is quite difficult to wake up when it's time to walk down to school. We took his scooter today and he had a great time whizzing along the footpaths.

He got a couple of big splinters in his foot this afternoon while playing with friends on our deck. Ouch! DaddyB and I had to employ team tactics to remove the nasty things. Note to self - much easier to get out a splinter after a bath.

I'm loving the change in the weather lately. Shorts and summer shoes for the boys. The garden is in much need of attention. Almost time to buy a couple of tomato plants to put in (they're the vege that we've had the most success with so far). We got some strawberry food yesterday and #1 cut the top off the packet tonight all keen to do a bit of gardening himself. Perhaps tomorrow will be another beautiful day.

    The innocence and peace of a sleeping child is magic. Great that spring is here and our gardens are calling. Trust you have all settled back to normality.

    There's nothing more idyllic than watching a sleeping baby or child and marvelling at the wonder of life. Nothing brings a smile to your face quicker. Something a mother never tyres of even as that child gets way bigger and would be horrified to know mum watches while they sleep!
    I feel a gardening day coming on myself.
    Love yoy. XOXOXOXO
