BITS + PIECES: Stills- a weekly collection


This week-
The rain has been heavy, with high winds, creaking stairs, visiting cockatoos out our front window for entertainment, and the fire on as we have bunkered down on the couch. Our little tribe are truly over being sick, I came down with what is best described as the flu Friday night. High fevers, shivering and a voice like a lounge singer without the stage, dim lights and booze. Winter has not been our friend and we have all been sick this week. After seven weeks of one or more of our family being sick I feel like there is a neon sign over our front door yelling "HELP". I've been holding my youngest for a week and a half day and night as he struggles with congestion, poor feeding and exhaustion. Both my little ones want their parents to hold them it's probably the reason we now are fighting colds. I'm grateful that I'm able to be there for them, but it also takes it's toll. I feel like I've got nothing left and I'm praying God gives us a better week and a return to good health. Please Jesus I need a miracle!!!! 

1. Resting on the couch watching old Disney classics and Peppa pig reruns.
2. Playing picnics, a big part of our days.
3. Honestly I gave up climbing the stairs to put him to bed, for him to wake up moments later coughing, so the couch nestled with cushions was the next best thing. 
4. The chaos of floor play. Miss Three's shells and ribbons & Little Fox's baby things. 
5. First foods, the carrots and brussel sprouts are my kids favourites. It must be our Polish roots.
6. Our Montessori lessons this week have focused on homelife- making beds, washing dishes, doing the washing and hanging it out and practising cleaning things up. Miss Three did a great job.
7. There's been lots of reading, thank you God for libraries. 
8. Pj days have become the norm this week and building huge structures. This one was a zoo castle.
9. Miss Three taking photos of home life and her brother.
