I’m so glad I was able to capture this today because normally miss 4.5 is a scribbler, she likes the pictures but she was never able to purposely colour in a particular object.

Today was different, she actually made an effort of colouring in the Christmas tree in one of the colouring books that she got as a gift this year and I am really proud that she has made that progress rather than just the long scribbling lines that would normally spread across the page.

Milestones can be so wondrous!

I saw the below quote and I think it suits my little miss to a tee. She LOVES fairies and all things princess like…especially when it comes to books and fairytales. Her current favourite is Tangled (or in other words Rapunzel) as well as Tinkebell and the Pixie Hollow faires.

“I fancy that at the beginning some fairy may have offered me the choice between great power and station and the privilege of living always among books, and that I, like the good child in the fairy tale, chose the latter.” ~James L. Whitney, “Reminiscences of an Old Librarian,” November 1909 [Whitney credits the idea for his statement to Andrew Lang’s “Ballade of the Bookworm.” —tεᖇᖇ¡·g

My middle son, I call him my little scholar…my deeper thinker, always wondering how the world works and dreaming big. He asks the deep questions that sometimes I don’t even have the answer for, so when I don’t have the answers, we search them and learn together, sometimes he is my teacher.

It’s so funny watching these two together, I think Tramp has taken our 8 month old Ragdoll kitten (Belle) under his wing (or should that say paw).

They get on so well together and Belle will flop at Tramps paws and wash his paw whilst Tramp has a good old snuffle of her. Belle also has a habit of using Tramps wagging tail as her very own play thing.

They certainly couldn’t be any better friends…throws out that whole cats & dogs being enemies doesn’t it!

Gone are the days of Cowboys and Indians, instead we now have assassins and robot heroes wielding guns. As much I’ve tried to fight it and being that this lad of mine is 12 at the end of this month. I have to applaud his creativeness as he wanted to be captured with his “assassins” robe on so we decided to put our imagination together and this is our creation.
