It has been one of those beautiful weekends.
Bren works every second Sunday so the weekends when he is home the whole time? Are amazing.
We all feel it.
This morning, Luca lay beside me in bed, just stirring from sleep. Bren and Zig were already up.
"Where's Daddy?" he asked.
"He's in the kitchen with Ziggy."
"Is he going to work?"
"Not today, honey."
"Oh," he said. "Thanks."
We all feel it.
It was a mild, sunny day here in Melbourne. My favourite kind of weather.
There was a spot of floorboard painting to do.
And then, we headed out to a nearby cafe. Looking it up online before we went, I discovered they had a children's menu. This is always a good sign.
When we got there, the waitress immediately set the kids up with colouring books.
Then the boys checked out the two boxes full of toys.
We were there for an hour and at no time did things go to shit.
I repeat, nothing went wrong.
It was possibly the best lunch out we have ever had as a family.
The kids were awesome, the food was awesome.
I had bruschetta that BLEW.MY.MIND.
Then I came home and had a little nap. Bliss.
It was one of those days. The days you just think you could burst with the feeling of abundance.
And now, I sit here typing while my smallest child flip flops in my belly, a little goldfish reminder that our bounty is about to increase a thousand fold.
You have to stop and say -"This? Is some good shit."
You may have noticed that I'm entered into a competition called Circle Of Moms Top #25 Aussie Bloggers. There is no prize to be won. I don't anticipate becoming the coolest kid in Blogland. What I would like is further exposure for The Little Mumma blog. I am a writer and I want to be read. Is this a good way to attract new readers? Maybe. It can't hurt. So from now until Dec 8, I will be including a link at the bottom of each post and also on my Facebook page and if you want to vote for me once a day, that would be wonderful. You can do so every 24 hours…or not. Either way, you have my biggest Little Mumma love just for being here. Thank you.
