So here I was thinking that today was World Middle Child Day and wouldn't that be the perfect time to write a little something about my very own middle child, my Ziggy. Then I discovered it was actually yesterday. Oh. No matter. It's high time we had a chat about Zig. And the reason […]
I don't normally share videos of the kids. Sometimes what we think is cute in our own kids is, well, less so when the kid belongs to someone else. Or maybe I'm just a jerk. But I'm sharing this because in 32 short seconds, it captures childhood; living in and fully experiencing the moment. We […]
I love this kid. My mum calls him "Ziggy the Quiet" – please note the sarcasm. Because really, this might be the loudest child in the history of the world. Loud and demanding and rabidly affectionate. Whether you like it or not, he will kiss your face off. Don't bother trying to resist, for what […]
These are little Ziggy tootsies captured on a sunny, summer day at the park. I miss sunny, summer days (but not the park – park+children=annoyingly swing push-y). And I miss baby Ziggy.

This? Is Ziggy aka Yo-bot. He has his hands stuffed in yoghurt pots and the spoon, well, it's obviously some […]
This is my little one. My Zig. He is all set to become the middle child in April but I hope he never feels like it. How does the stereotype go? Neither the oldest or the baby. Just….in the middle. Nothing special. Ha! Not likely. From the moment he arrived, we have […]
…to my sons. This may come as a surprise but I did not name my children after letters of the alphabet. LD and Zee are so named here on the blog as a way to preserve their privacy. It's quite a common practice. Some people stick with initials and others (have the presence of mind […]
So it's come to my attention that Zee is this child – I have been quoting this scene from Parenthood for years. And now, I have my very own little Justin. Of course, it is impossible to get Zee to wear any kind of beanie or hat to ward off cold or sun but […]
