This week I’m grateful for:

  • Grabbing your attention with a cheeky (pardon the pun) headline. OK, it’s more than just that. This week, on the way home from childcare, Princess Ella came out with: “look Mum, the moon is following us. I think it might be coming home with us’’. We then turned a corner. “Oh dear, I think the moon has gone to someone else’s house now.’’ I shared this on Twitter and was inundated with tweets from people who admitted to thinking the same when they were a child. I’m grateful she’s pretty normal for thinking like this. Otherwise, there are a lot of crazy people out there.
  • The judges of the Mentally Sexy Dad competition selecting my hubby to be honoured in the top 5 last Sunday and interviewing him this week. I know I’ve already mentioned it, but it really is an honour. Mostly because everyone has had the chance to learn what we already knew about him. He’s a wonderful dad and fabulous husband. Don’t know how I scored that one. Must have been those sexy legs of mine. *looks down at legs* Hmm, where did they go?
  • Live puppet shows. I took the girls shopping today and stumbled upon the brilliant David Hamilton Puppet Show in the mall. Ella hasn’t yet learnt there’s a reason you don’t sit in the front row. The dog puppet stole her sunglasses (temporarily), after which she refused to take them off her face. Although, she hasn’t stopped talking about how much she loved it.

I’m joining with  Maxabella Loves’ Grateful For, which is being hosted by Kimmie at ‘a day in the life of us’ .

    It’s these wee moments every day that are important to see with our kids – note to self. Glad your hubby’s awesomeness is being shared and here’s hoping your wee girl always boldly heads for that front row.

  5. Hi Kel,
    Our youngest grandkids adore the moon. In fact for quite sometime they also thought our family room light was the moon. We did not tell them anything else… When I was a kids (now you KNOW that was a very, very long time ago) I remember coming home from my grandparents, along a quite dark stretch of road, towards our place, and looking at the wonder that the moon was following us Cool. Nothing wrong with me…&*%^
    I am starting to think the there needs to be a BLOGGERS ANON for those who are deciding their last (maybe or not) child is growing up waaaaay too fast…there are a few of you…I know…

    Love Denyse XX

      Hehe!! Love dragging them in with a good headline, Caz! It was begging to be used! 😉
      Love that your pinks like spotting the moon too. Kids seem to have a real fascination with it. x

  7. Oh, too cute. My boys are amazed when they see the moon during the day. Oh, there is so much to teach them in such a short time!

    So glad you’re still so chuffed about last week’s award for your husband. It is pretty cool!!

    I’m glad Ella still likes it after that experience, but I must confess I have a puppet aversion. And I think I’ve blocked the reason out because it was just too traumatic.

    Yeah, I’m not sure why either. But just *shiver* don’t like them!

    Thanks for linking up today!

      Oh dear, Kymmie. Not good on the puppet front. x
      I love how kids are so drawn to the moon. Everyone has similar stories about their children – I’m really enjoying reading them all.
      PS. Have to say, I so enjoyed visiting your blog on Saturday. I’m now a new follower! x

  8. On the way home from Childcare the other night my toddler was also noticing the moon. She’d look away at other things for a while before looking back at the moon and saying, “Look! Another moon!” I tried to explain it’s the same one but not sure it’s easy to understand how it was following us!
