a portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013 via Che and Fidel

He : is a stick collector from way back. I think he has been finding and dragging home sticks since he was around two. This is the current favourite and it has been lovingly sanded and oiled while Legoman does the same to our new outdoor table.

She : loves creatures and wants to make them all pets. This caterpillar came home in  a special carrier with a little stick for climbing and leaves for munching.


  1. Your kids are just so sweet.
    I always love reading the captions that go along with your photos.

  2. Lovely lovely, tell you daughter I have lots of slugs that I'm taking good care off. They live happily in my veg patch!
    Reno coming on great guns! :) x

  3. boys and sticks?!...we have shelves full of them....the collection of choice at the moment is gravel....thrills a minute here! x

  4. Hi Mel, love your portraits this week - when you look at what the kids are wearing it's hard to believe it's actually Winter (gotta love Brisbane!) Thankfully it's just a caterpillar - imagine if she started keeping snakes and possums under her bed. xx
