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

He : dressed up for book week this week. A milestone moment as every other year he has gone in his school uniform. We hail Zac Powers books for inspiring not only countless hours of reading but enthusiasm for dressing up ( we are even talking hair gel). He did have to wake me up at 530 am to confirm whether I was SURE Zac really had a headset. He was also super chuffed when the year seven kids knew who he was. 

She : decided to go to her brother's book week parade at school as a polar bear. Gratitude for only having to staple some felt ears together the morning of and for friends who buy their children white fur coats and then hand them down to us. 


  1. Oh bless - good on you Roboboy for stepping out of your comfort zone. My Jack refused to go to school on the day of the bookweek parade. I finally managed to convince him to go, but he would only wear his uniform and nothing else. xx

  2. Gosh, they are growing up fast! And the renovation is speeding up too! Exciting! :) x

  3. Oh dear...I have no idea who he is? I am sure I will find out though in a few years!
    And she makes a perfectly angelic polar bear.
