This post has nothing to do with the picture or the title.
This post is really about my hubby’s niece. Her mum (my SIL) is busy teaching her double-digit numbers (or rather trying to figure out how to teach her). She is at that age where she thinks she is smarter than everyone around her – you know that age 3 going on 30. Her school has taught them up to 10. So her mama decides let’s get ahead of the curve and learn 11 to 20.
Well, let’s just say it is not going as planned. She argues with her poor mama all the way and can’t understand why “one and one” is suddenly 11 (eleven) or “one and two” is 12 (twelve). The response is always the same – ” No mommy, not eleven, it is one and one” ” No momm, not twelve, it is one and two” You get the gist. She is not totally wrong, because 11 is really one and one. And she is one head strong girl…. I have told the mom to check for apps that might help or look for a DVD or just keep on teaching and hope she gets it eventually. No part of parenting is easy…..
It did make for a good laugh though I know my SIL doesn’t think it’s funny.
Any tips ? Please share if you have any secret formula that worked for you
Hope you are having a good week so far?
Leaving the hospital. Dont you just love the big flower on her head
Yep, another one. My sister’s best friend’s baby. I’ve known the mom since she was 6 or 7! And now she’s a grown woman, wife and mama of 2.
April seems to be a very popular month for babies in my world!!!
Hope you’ve had a good week thus far? Have a wonderful and restful week ahead xxx
Joining Marcia again this month on the photo challenge. The theme this time around is BROWN!
I battled with this challenge all week because I just didn’t want to take the obvious brown nature pictures, but then had a light bulb moment today, I have loads of brown around my house…
So here we go (I need a lot of luck as I’m posting this from my phone)
Trust you are having a great weekend xxx
A view of one part of my lounge. A lot of brown

One of my cousins has a habit of calling her daughters princess, so following the trend here is her princess no. 3. She graced the world with her presence a week ago on the 2nd of April.
As is customary she has numerous names – every uncle, aunt and relatives wants the honour of naming the new baby, lucky her, she only has 5

A Wonder of God in a basket
Yep, that song is playing in my head. You know the one I’m talking about.
My cousin’s 1st baby born 2nd April. She’s just too cute and her name translates literally into ‘A wonder of God’
Her birth was a wonder in itself – nurse told Dr to do a CS ASAP because baby is not descending/high up (not sure of the right term). Thank heavens and the Lord it was not a Dr who took the nurses word for it, because Dr checks 5 minutes later and baby was just in the right position to be born naturally! Phew – that was close
Another baby picture coming your way soon! Another cousin also had a baby girl (her 3rd on the same day).
Hope you all had a good Easter? Have a wonderful and restful weekend xxx

Well, Easter is finally upon us, felt like yesterday I was running around for Christmas and ushering in the New Year. Time really does fly (though I am not sure I like the idea of Easter in March, can’t Easter always be in April)
I went into the mall earlier to get a gift bag and I was amazed when I saw this…
Doesn’t this look like a scene from a cartoon
…. I didn’t know there was usually such a big fanfare (or in this case chocolate fare) for Easter. Now I wish I was a dentist or a chocolatier.
I have never associated Easter with chocolates or hot cross buns until very recently, though I still don’t buy either. I tasted some chocolate hot cross buns and it was yummy!!! Easter growing up was always about going to church and watching the resurrection play and spending time with the family
And my office also gave us this today…
This long 4 day weekend, I intend to relax a lot and go to boot camp at least twice 5.15am (not really looking forward to that though)
So what are you up to, this Easter and long weekend?
Have a wonderful and restful Easter (if you celebrate) and please be safe xxx
