A thousand words…

Ride 'em Buzz

I walked into LD's room and saw the above. I took a photo of it because I wanted to talk to you about how cool I think imaginative play is. I get such a kick out of listening to the crazy shit my three-year-old comes out with when he is completely immersed in his own games.


But then, after I took the photo of Buzz (wanna-be Woody?), I captured what I think is one of the best photos of Zee of all time.

Sweet Zee

In one shot, a personality summed up. Really. That is my kid. Deeply mischievious and cute as all fuck. Beautiful child. He drives me nuts.


And another, just because I adore my little 'ranga.

Gratuitous Cuteness


 It's the weekend! Happy dancing over here.


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    I too adore the stuff that they come up with when making up their own games………….I envy my boys their imagination at times.

    And yes Zee is adorablely cheeky!!!

  2. Janeo

    Omg best photo ever so cheeky needs to be blown up on a canvas 🙂 ..

  3. Carol Townsend

    look out here’s trouble, written all over his face, just gorgeous.

  4. Rae

    How cute are all three of those pics….especially the ones of Zee!

    Have a fab weekend with those gorgeous little peeps of yours xx

  5. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Oh, I know – a child’s imagination is a beautiful thing. I love to encourage it as much as possible – the crazier the better!

    And yes, love my little Zee.

  6. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Zee is such a love. He really is. His personality amuses me no end. Frustrates the living shit out of me, too, I should add. But the whole family, LD included, just laugh at him. He’s a total clown!

    You, too, honey. Especially tomorrow night. JEALOUS!

  7. Galit Breen

    Happy dances right back atcha Mama!

    Ad yes- you rocked the cuteness in this one.

    Love them, adore you!


  8. Ladybird

    I licked the screen.

  9. Trish

    How cute and cheeky is Zee.
    Love the Buzz shot too.

  10. Madeleine

    I love those photos of Zee! Totally captures his spirit. And I adore his hair colour, too. Cheeky little lad.

  11. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Yep, that’s my kid, right there. Such a little love. I so need to ‘update’ you on all things Zee.

    Hair colour is hilarious – but actually not orange like the photos show. I warmed the pics up using Picnik and obviously it has grabbed the red and gone wild. Much more strawberry blond – but undeniably still a ‘ranga!

  12. Melissa

    He’s cute and very cheeky – so obviously.

    We all loved Buzz on the Little People horse. That is a real winner.

  13. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Over the years, walking in to find abandoned toys arranged in various positions has brought no end of amusement. Starting with the nail polish jars stacked like blocks when LD was around 12 months old. Seriously.

  14. Melissa

    Angie, I was just reading that comment of yours again on MJ’s blog, believe it or not. I knew you’d mentioned something about nail polish once before and then I remembered where I’d seen it. Of course then I got to enjoy the Faery’s princess on the leash all over again as well.

    When it comes to sleeping positions and interesting toy arrangements, you guys have it covered. I don’t need to look anywhere else.

  15. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Yup. It’s true. We have odd little creatives on our hands. I do like me some odd.

    And I know you do, too… xx

  16. Ladybird

    Ok, I have issues. Because everytime this comes up on my news feed and I see Buzz on top of the little ‘ol little people horsie – I think all brokeback mountain and I teehee.
