Ziggy - MC Sept


Two years old, but on the precipice of three, life with Ziggy is…real.

It's so real.

But aside from his propensity for loud protest should a thing not be to his liking, this kid is a gem. Whip-smart and cheeky as they come. And always, always looking for another chance to snuggle on the couch. My god, this kid can snuggle.

And he grows. As they do. I noticed with a lingering sadness that he has dropped some of his mispronunciations.

His big brother is no longer "Bubba!" but Luca. 

Granma is just Granma – not WaWa.

Coachroach is gone – plain old cockroach in its place.

But thank goodness, for now, lounge room is still lounge-droom.

I love lounge-droom

Linking up with lovely Galit and Alison


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.

    Oh I know this cusp of 3 you write of.
    My little Monkey is not so little anymore.
    He’s gorgeous, your boy.

    Oh sweet friend, he is such a love.

    And growing big is such a heart tug.

    I love the way you wrote about the changing way he says his important words. Holy wow does it make them sound big!

    I adore you, your love, and your mothering heart.
