"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Poppy:: we have reached the mama stage. as in mamamamamamama. you love everyone you meet but prefer to stay in my arms for the time being. reaching for me from whoever chooses to cuddle you. your eyes sparkle when i speak to you, or dance with your sister next to you. i am butter for you, melting me with every giggle and every smile. you are divine.

Piper::  you are our animal whisperer. you cannot turn away from them. patting every stray cat, or dog waiting outside of the shops. chasing the birds at the beach. and ponies, your heart skips a beat at the sight of them. you tell me they talk to you and tell you their needs. this morning there was a little poodle, looking worse for wear, outside the grocery store. while i was busy at the checkout you sat patting and whispering to it. on the drive home you told me all about him. that he was okay because his mummy left him there for some fresh air and would be back soon. your heart is so pure. this is your monthly pony ride. you are amazing.
