Journalling reads: When it comes to birthday presents, I have a very bad habit of giving them to the boys early. Iam awful at keeping secrets from people and surprising them, mostly because I am so impatient. I want to see their reaction as soon as I have the gift to give them. This year that ended up working in my favour for once. I gave the boys one of Logan’s birthday presents to play with one day when they were being noisy and annoying each other. I thought it would be a good distraction and an activity they could do together. They had a lot of fun playing with it and fighting over who got what to play with. Their birthdays ended up being really rubbish, so I am glad that they at least had this chance to play with and enjoy one of the birthday presents, before all of the chaos. Even if all of the little bits are now missing. Although the best part for me is having photographic evidence that they can play nicely together!

Journalling reads: When the summer heat was enough to make us both feel like we were melting, we did the only thing we could think of to keep cool, we got out the paddling pool. We set it up on the deck and filled it with bucket after bucket of water. Then we dug out our swimming costumes and filled the pool with toys before we climbed in. It was just big enough for both of us to sit in, Daddy was being a spolisport and didn’t want to join in, but we had a great time splashing around in the pool.

Journalling reads: Everytime Nannie Donna went on holiday, she used to take great pleasure in bringing you back some, well I will be nice and say unusual gifts. She seemed to look for the most noisy or destructive thing she could possibly find. This time that happened to be a Power Ranger Baseball bat and ball set. Not only was it a potentially lethal weapon but it made the sound of shattering glass everytime anything touched it. I can’t even guess at how many times, me and daddy came racing down to the garden thinking you had smashed the shed window or the kitchen door. You couldn’t quite get the hang of swinging it at the ball, but we had a lot of fun trying at the park. We soon moved on to mummy and daddy hitting the ball and you chasing after it, like a dog. You are such a funny little boy Lukas.
