At my house.....

At my house this week, Abbey discovered my button jars (for the very first time) She had lots of fun going through them, and I am sure there will be more button exploration going on around here now.

What do you say when a 4 year old wants to wash the dishes for you? You say go for it! (I washed all the fragiles, bulky items and knives, and left her all the plastic to do) Yes, the floor was rather wet afterwards, but she had so much fun. My favourite part was when she asked me "is this splash-you-la clean?", meaning spatula. Too cute.

Chris and Abbey had a guitar jamming session. There was some lovely music played and some silly songs made up. Oh, and Barbie joined in too, not sure what her contribution was (Abbey's guitar is really a pink ukulele)

This is the way Zoe started out playing (tasting the) guitar:

But in the end, she got the hang of it.

There is some secret Father's day arts and crafts going on this week. Don't tell Chris/daddy!

This week, I better finish planning for Zoe's birthday - my baby turns ONE next week. How did that happen so quickly? A very casual afternoon tea we are having, with a (vague) lady bug theme.

Tonight I am off out for a coffee and chat (and cake/pudding - maybe?) with my bestie, after all our kids are in bed. No children to interrupt our conversations - we may finish a few, for a change!

Visit Lou for more.

Have a great week :)



  1. What a lovely week! I know what you mean about never finishing conversations.....

  2. Awwww...adorable! Absolutely adorable!

  3. Your house sounds like fun! Can I come round for coffee & playdates? LOL! But we live interstate :(

  4. love the look of concentration on your elder sprout :)

  5. Awww, that is TOO cute! Especially the splash-la comment :)

  6. Lots happening at your house. I must admit that it is only sometimes I agree to let my little ones wash the dishes. Depends on my energy levels as like you said there is always a bit of extra water that gets out and about ;) They do love it though.

    Hope Daddy loves his pressies this weekend :)

    Thanks for joining in again this week. Lou.
