Puddle & a Stick !

This morning I took the kidlets to the park to wear them out for a play and like always, they found the one and only puddle there and had a field day! I really believe that all kids need for a rock'n time is a puddle and a stick. It was funny because in eye shot, 50 meters or so away there was a brand spanking new playground  with all the latest and greatest gadgets and also I might add, the worlds most ridiculously stupidly dangerous slippery dip I've ever seen!

As you can see below, my two preferred the puddle and a stick (or a small tree branch, if you prefer!)






















So you may be wondering where my child's pants are? The answer is that it appears Jack is going through a phase at the moment where he no longer holds the desire to wear pants! I promise that I dress my children but everytime I look, Jack's pantless. This doesn't really phase me, however I was a little embarrassed when at the park I turned to find Jack running as fast as his little chubby legs would carry him across the field and you guessed it, commando style! I had to apolgise to a couple of bemused joggers: "sorry, I just can't keep his pants on!"

It's almost been three years since Jack graced us with this relentless screaming lovely little face. So as you do, I'm throwing him a little party to celebrate (not one of those super-styled affairs as I just don't have it in me. Cake and a few balloons is all I can muster).

Here's the invite I've been working on... Almost finished:




























On another note, I've got a room I'd like to decorate so I can take decent staged photos for my online stores launching soon... Here's are some images I find inspiring. Hope you're all having a super week and don't forget, if you find a puddle and stick, go wild!! Erin x

  1. Hummmmm..... Wonder if you were at Lota park....world's most dangerous slide gave it away! If it makes you feel any better...my boy NEVER wears shoes, he's three too. I think it's a statement of freedom.
