I’m not a morning person.
I wish I was.
I am broken into parts.
It takes a while to put me back together.
But I cannot even begin to describe
The gentle healing power that extends through my skin
And into my bones
That fills my lungs
To become my very breath to start the day
When I see tiny toes standing on the floor beside my bed
And when those tiny toes crawl in beside me
Connected to tiny people
Tiny people who entwine their tiny arms around mine
And smile with their tiny faces
I become whole.

This will forever be remembered as the Summer you learned to ride your bike.
Sans training wheels.

Because one day
You won’t play dress ups
Have a little pot belly
Hair that sweeps gently across your brow
Or be as fascinated with your belly button
Like today.

A little reminder of Australian Cheezel finger childhood
On this Australia day.

Miss Mia.
My first.
I see so much of me in you.
(I am yet to decide if it’s for the better).
You are determined.
Wise beyond your years.
Your memory astounds me.
I wouldn’t call you cuddly
Or great at sports.
But you are kind.
Clever.
And love to dance.
You take your brother’s lead in games
But you know how to have fun.
And when I ask you for a photo
You erupt in a fit of laughter
And your crinkled nose as you smile
Makes it all complete.

Just when you think you know the way,
Your feet weightless as you skip ahead,
You hit a dead end.
So you turn around
And realise you forgot where you started.
So you try going right
And then left
And then right again.
But that’s when you realise
It isn’t about which way you’re going
But what you’re learning from the journey.

When the rain pours
And the wind howls
And you get only the smallest of weather breaks for outdoor photos
But the smiles are still like this
You know it’s going to be a glorious wedding day to photograph.

One does not realise
Until one stops for many years
How difficult this actually is.
… she makes it look easy.
