33 – 52

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Mahlia: Getting ready to dive, she takes her swimming very seriously and doesn't like not being able to do new things. Her current hurdle is the turn underwater. We keep encouraging her to practise, practise, practise and she will get there, but she wants to be able to do it now. Apparently she is the same at school, reluctant to try new things for fear of not being able to do them. My little perfectionist.

Leila: She had her first full day at preschool this week, and loved it. Today she cleaned the kitchen cupboards and dining room chairs, and loved it! She also loves her swimming but doesn't take it seriously at all!

Archer: He's just about over his cold but is still teething. He comes into bed with me earlier and earlier in the night, everyone gets more sleep then. And he starts swimming lessons with daddy today! He loves he water and kicks away in the bath, so I'm sure he will enjoy the pool!

  1. I can empathise with your eldest, I also have that trait of wanting to have things NOW RIGHT NOW! Hope she's finding it easier already.
