Father’s Day 2016…

Not so late this time around 

photobombed by the dog’s tail

K now understands the day a bit though she kept saying it is daddy’s birthday. And let me just add here that if you want to keep something a secret don’t tell a 2 year old. We addressed a card for daddy and put it in the bag with the gifts, immediately daddy came home K was quick to tell him this was his birthday gift πŸ˜†

 πŸ˜† but luckily daddy  has patience and he waited till Sunday to get his gift 

So what did we do…We picked sticks:

the stick was one of three that made it into daddy’s gift pack

the “i know you asked me not to taste the dough but couldn’t resist” look

ate dough (cough cough baked)

We addressed cards:

card making in progress

what a big difference a year makes.

Father and Child

No day off for daddy just because it is Father’s day πŸ™‚

our attempt at making a cake just for daddy… the anticipation to dig right in

hugs for daddy

“toto ” sauce is yum

K for Kanyinsola; K for Kangaroo

picking out random numbers and letters

Kisses for daddy because we give him grey hairs 😁😁 and most importantly because he is ours

And it’s a wrap 

Q&A with a 2 year old…

Cleo the Rottweiler getting a hug because K decided she was sad πŸ™‚

Saw this floating around and decided to have some fun last night : Without any prompting, ask your child these questions 

What is your name? I’m Kanyinsola; my name is 2. Proud mommy moment she did say her first and last name last week 

How old are you? 2 

When is your birthday? 2 on my birthday 

How old is Daddy? 2

How old is Mummy? 2

All the age questions were shown with hand gestures (in case mommy didn’t hear well). We can only count to 13 so it would have been anything between 1-13 πŸ˜†

kanyinsola is 2

mommy is 2

daddy is 2

What is your favorite colour? I’m painting with mommy (at least she knows we use colour for painting)

What is your favourite food?  Pizza, cupcake, oats,  Otees   (I’ve never eaten this before but she gets it in Sunday school). Cupcake hmmmmm, pizza (this one was a surprise because we hardly eat pizza) And oats!! Definitely not my child as I can’t stomach oats but she loves it and is happy to have it for breakfast everyday if you allow 

Who is your best friend? Friend (well)

What is your favourite song? Twinkle star I’m sure if I asked again she would say baa baa sheep, Cow (her way of describing old Macdonalds has a farm) ring around the roses, incy spider, Barney says (yes we like Barney) and Hickory dock

What is your favourite animal? I like avagator (😳)   then she decided all amimals. I do know she likes dogs, penguins, rabbits, butterfly, elephant, monkeys, cows, fishes frogs and horses

What are you scared of? Blank face no response. Long may the not knowing what scary is last 

What makes you happy? I’m happy (said with hands raised in the air to affirm the proclamation 

e for elephant πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Where is your favorite place to go? Swimming and Church (that’s my child) and I’m sure if I allowed her she would have added gym 

What do you want to be when you grow up? Grow up and drink milk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What is Mummy’s favorite thing to do? Blank face ….. No response 

What is daddy’s favorite thing to do? Daddy is not doing 

There you have it ….…………

Oh my word!! Kids are brutally honest!! Someone asked her kid what is mom’s favourite colour and she said -dry white…. Hmmm I didn’t know dry white was a colour on the spectrum πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Another friend asked her kid what mom’s favourite thing to do is- child responded drink wine πŸ˜†

Β Β Β Β Been a while…

It’s been a while since I posted here. So much has happened in that time. Some day I might blog about it. In the meantime  here are a few pictures of little miss. 
 

 

settings trends … when you cant decide which to wear, you wear as many as you can possibly get on your neck

  

stopping to smell the “fowers” on our walk

 

and so it begins… except she wants it cleaned off immediately after because you can’t have dirty hands

 
  

the doll: child loves; daddy hates and mommy indifferrent to it πŸ™‚

  

my little helper! if only thr shopping cart wasnt taller than her

   

bath toys need a bath too

  

in mommy’s running shoes

  
    
    
 

Wordless Wednesday, Kind of …

One lazy Sunday in March…

 

chomping down on sugarcane… perfect teething toy

A trip to the Irene Dairy farm…

penny for your thought missy… at the wishing fountain

not turning grey, that is sand in her hair and we haven’t started creche

 
 

running away from mommy because she wasnt ready to leave the sand pit. same child that refused to let her feet touch the sand when we got there lol

 

monkey see monkey do!! my water baby enjoyed this a bit too much and didn’t want to leave. I cringe at the thought of what could be in that water, she may or may not have tried to lick the water off her hand


 

Changing gears… the “mandatory” tractor ride

  

and a selfie…

all that fun resulted in a a very dirty and exhausted child, she napped for close to 3 hours

and dinner went down well too. All that fun made for a very hungry child

one way to remove sand from hair. worked for us. now i know

I   

May 1st Tradition …

Every May 1st is a public holiday around here and for the past 4 years one thing I do on May 1st is the Wally Marathon and this year was no different   (And no I’m yet to join the league of “crazy” runners so I stick to the 10km)  I love this race because I don’t have to drive far (it’s held less than 10km from my house), is well organized and parking is always a breeze . I did the 5km when I was pregnant πŸ™‚
   

this view made waking up so early all worth it

  

brrrrrr and it felt even colder

sun rise (literally, seeing the sun rising just before the 10km started)

waiting for the starting gun

 

he’s battle ready! he was doing the 42k i think. Though not sure when he will get to eat his meal

 
 

a beautiful autumn day, though it was still cold …

  

always a good vibe and lots going on after the race

  

  

quarter marathon done and dusted


I had plans to do other things today but ended up lazing around the house, napping (kind of – because K decided she wanted to play) and baking.  
Do you do anything on this day that is fast becoming a tradition? The one blog I read she and her family do a hike 

Wordless Wednesday …
