nicholas: Your just-woke-up face is one of my favourites, and the bed hair from a lunchtime bath made it even more special. You are quite happy to zone out with the boys on the couch while you wake up properly, then it’s time to play and explore and eat and chat and yell and sing and crawl and bike ride and read some more. I love watching you play – listening to your imaginary phone calls to daddy, the way you build lego and fly it around, how you hide Froggie in a bucket and make him reappear. I love watching your imagination in action.

52-34-3sam: We were glad to see you much healthier and back at school this week, even though you had to have one day off for scheduled treatment. Between the steroids and the rainy weather, this weekend hasn’t been our finest and I’m sure we’ve each had a turn at melting down at some stage. I guess this is just what happens when we love each other and we’re affected by each other’s moods. Lucky we know that ‘this too shall pass’ and the sunshine will soon return.

52-34-2charlie: While you don’t dress up quite as much as you used to, a quiet morning at home this week was spent pulling every article of dress-ups out of our two boxes and spreading them all over the lounge room floor so we could pick out our outfits. Our usually very healthy boy took his turn at the man flu mid-week, and you made me giggle when you told me one morning that “the crouper still hadn’t gone”. Thankfully you seemed to bounce back very quickly and were all set to celebrate pyjama day (to raise money for Daffodil Day) at kindy on Friday. As if you need an excuse not to get out of your pyjamas for a whole day 😉
