Magical wildflowers...

... a deer patiently posing...

... & a bit of babywearing :-)

I had to get out of the house this weekend. Needed to clear my head, breathe some fresh air & reclaim myself a little bit. & I really needed to hold on to my baby boy. But he's a toddler: busy-busy-busy exploring the world and all the cars in it. He wasn't much up for hugging his mamma as much as she wanted him to ;-)
Stroke of genius though, even if I do say so myself: a walk out in nature with Squirt in his own personal 'backpack' as soon as he got a little tired! He loved it, and so did I :-D
I won't go as far as to say "all's right with the world again", but I definitely feel better and ready for another week.

and I’m a little bit lost without you
and I’m a bloody big mess inside
and I’m a little bit lost without you
this ain’t a love song this is goodbye*

*This Ain't a Love Song by Scouting for Girls. Not entirely appropriate but I can't get this bit out of my head. & I can't stop crying. Yet...
Serving a spoonful of very personal here. It's all I have right now.

I'm a bit scared to draw in the face... But apart from that, pretty pleased about how this came out! And it actually happened, wet bum & all ;)

Yesterday, I made a parenting mistake so basic, I don't think it's even covered in Parenting 101...
I took Squirt into a. Toy. Store. Because I wanted to look at a DVD. For him of course. See, my intentions were good. They usually are ;)
But then I expected we could just walk out - without the DVD because it was rediculously over-priced - and be on our merry way. Without investigating all the cars in the shop. Or buying one or more. Without mini-tantrums & dramatics.
Silly beginner, me.
