Happy Days

What a beautiful day it has been. Although the weather is cooler there has been gentle sunshine and blue skies. The children and I decided to make the most of the break in the rain to play outside.

Just like the weather, it’s been a gentle but very satisfying day filled with simple pleasures. We played ball, played cards, played with the dog, danced to music together and spent time just sitting and chatting. The chores got done in between and then (because India played mud pies) an early bath and dinner.

My babies smell delicious fresh from the tub and seem extra cuddly in their flannelette pyjamas. We are all happy and relaxed and content and India is already asleep in my arms. These are the days that happy memories are made of.

About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
