"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2015"

Stella: Life as a four and a half year old is kinda tough these days, and I think maybe we all just need a nap.

Hugo: He started walking yesterday. He can manage about four steps now, and I'm sure he'll be off to the races soon.

This past week was a bit of a rollercoaster. It seems as though all the wonderful things about raising children, the joys of milestones reached and big birthdays celebrated, and cuddles after a long day away and wet baby kisses, well, they've all been crammed into a week of all the difficulties of being small. Boundary pushing, late nights and early mornings, drama and tears, and temper tantrums, well this past week they've all been crammed together at maximum capacity and turned up to eleven.

Here's to Mercury getting back into alignment, and life getting a little bit easier in this coming week.
