Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.
Kitty: This week I got to do my first ‘working from home so I could do the school run’ day and to be honest the school run was one of the highlights of my day. The fact that I brought your scooter (having seen how much fun you had with one in Kensington Gardens where this picture was taken) I think may have been the highlight of your day and you and your friend practically flew home leaving us mummies striding after you to keep up. Somehow I think work from home days might be the best day of the week.

Elma: You loved scooting in Kensington Gardens, and not just because you had the pink scooter. You were absolutely desperate to be the leader which made life a bit interesting for your big sister you being that much taller and faster kept rapidly overtaking you as she flew up and down. One day you’ll be able to keep up I promise but in the meantime you’ll have to keep being the tiny pink dynamo! NB I know her helmet isn’t quite right in this photo, it was the smallest the hotel had and we pulled it into the right place every time we were near her, it just didn’t always stay that way and it was better than nothing!

Pip: Well little man, what a week! You have survived your first days away from Mummy, and seem to be thriving, even if you are then very keen to limpet to me as soon as I walk through the door. Truth be told, I rather need to limpet to you too. You’ve had a snuffly nose which has turned into a virus that has given you a truly horrid set of spots, all over and a good dozen in your hair so you’re on your first ever medicine (not for the virus but we have stuff to stop the spots getting nasty). And if that wasn’t enough, you published your first blog post (at only 12 months old – definitely something the grandparents should be bragging about!!). It was entirely blank, but for anyone that missed seeing it on Thursday morning it was intriguingly titled “Guggtahjmh GCSEs chug scoffs and gjiY m a go. Ya.” Well quite!
