Flawless Friday – April 22nd

Another Friday, another week that’s flown by. Here are this weeks flawless moments, to capture the lovely from a normal week and make a point of remembering these lovely moments:

  • Our little girly dot is speaking sentences. She’s been chattering away for months and will repeat every word you say, or at least try to. But now she’s stringing these words together and sounds so sweet when she does.
  • We had a trip to IKEA to get our son a new bed, the visit itself became a roller-coaster of emotions and we were left drenched in pee, sick and salty tears. But he got his sweet little bed with sheep in the headboard and absolutely loves it. He still doesn’t realise he can get himself out of bed, which is a shame, I was really looking forward to sharing the time when I wake up to his big face staring back at me. But that day will come.
  • We visited the zoo and it was an all day event. The girl napped in the stroller and I survived the endless hills. I ache like a mother. But we survived the hills and the day in general. It was a really lovely day, I had the best company with my little baby beasts.
  • Granny Firstooth has signed me up for Pretty Muddy. It’s like a mud run. Almost like a watered down Tough Mudder, which will still be too tough for me I bet. All I know is that I can’t back out. Can I? No, I can’t. I will be there with bells on, just in case I get lost.
  • My gorgeous angels keep telling us that they love us. To hear the words “my luffs you mummy” melts my heart every time. Being a parent, as tough as it can be, is amazing.
  • A few early finishes from Mr Firstooth. So he could enjoy when sh*t gets real after 4pm. Because it gets real, every day, after 4pm. And sometimes before 10am.

I hope you had a flawless week and have a lovely weekend. Lets keep everything crossed for sunshine! We have a very special event to go to on Sunday so I’m hoping God lets it shine.

    I bet Pretty Muddy is hard going. I bet it will be great fun at the same time though

    Haha, you write the same way I do!

    Does your little one shout for you in the mornings? Because if I’m honest, I’d really be making the most of those lie-ins if he allows them! Also, having a face appear in front of me as I wake up might freak me out a little bit. (That may only be because my dad told me I used to stand watching him like an apparition in the middle of the night…)

    Good luck in your race. Is that your mum, or your MIL? Just wondering if there was love or animosity behind it?! x

    My friend did pretty muddy and she was sooooo muddy but she had such a great time. A great thing to get involved in. Thank you so much for sharing in #HappyDaysLinky x

    Good luck with your mud run! I would be useless at that. I’ve signed myself up to a running club starting next week though, eek! Thanks for linking up to #HappyDaysLinky x
