The theme this week over at Tara's Gallery is 'Simple Pleasures'.
The simple pleasures that make my day....let me think...I could say cuddling up with my husband to watch a great film, I could say taking a great photograph, I could say grabbing a coffee with my friends, I could say having a chat on Twitter, I could say reading blogs, I could say watching some comedy or I could say writing this blog. The list is endless for my simple pleasures really. But the simple pleasure I love the most is spending time with my daughter. After all she's the reason I started this blog and the reason I'm a SAHM. We play games together (hide and seek is her favourite at the moment), we read books together, we get all her toys out and we even clean and cook together - she really is Mummy's little helper when she's not stealing baguettes that is!
There are times when, being the techno-toddler she is, we enjoy the laptop together. I love her face when we play all the Eric Herman Music videos. Her favourite is The Elephant Song, she finds it so funny and knows exactly which animal is coming up next, proudly announcing it's imminent arrival. I love seeing her little face light up when we watch it and sing together.
She turns 2 years old next Friday (March 11th) and I struggle now to remember a time when she wasn't in my life.
