Climbing {The Ordinary Moments}

Cheeky Chap is utterly fearless. He may lack confidence in many areas but climbing and exploring is not one of them. The thing is, he is small for his age so whenever he is climbing, there is inevitably an adult nearby looking for me. Try as I might, I never seem to be able to convince complete strangers that I know my child well enough to know he is more than capable. For example, he has been walking on the… Continue Reading “Climbing {The Ordinary Moments}”

Dog Sitting {The Ordinary Moments}

I will confess that I am not much of an animal lover. I mean, I have nothing particularly against animals but I’ve never been keen to have them in my life.

And I am naturally quite lazy. But Cheeky Chap really is the sort of child that needs to… Continue Reading “Park Life {The Ordinary Moments 17}”

Mucking Around {The Ordinary Moments ~ 17}

There are times when you can see something happening, something you think would be nice to have a record of, and you just start taking pictures and hope for the best. On Friday afternoon I was working in the bedroom and I heard laughter. Lots of giggles and laughter. I wandered into the lounge and saw the husband and Cheeky Chap mucking around together. They were having so much fun and it really made me smile. So, I quickly grabbed… Continue Reading “Mucking Around {The Ordinary Moments ~ 17}”
