The Theme Game #3

It’s Theme Game time!  The time to be creative and possibly win a little prize too, courtesy of The Reading Residence and Red Peffer’s linky.  This week the theme is ‘Play’.

The main feeling I get from the word play, is of it’s universal nature.  Play is classless, cultureless, sexless, ageless and is not bound by species. 

Children play….

I think this quote sums up how important it is for all of us

We could always say we are doing research…

The Theme Game #2

It’s Theme Game time!  The time to be creative and possibly win a little prize too, courtesy of The Reading Residence and Red Peffer’s linky.  This week the theme is ‘New’.

I love being a mum for so many reasons.  I love being the one who looks after my little girl.  I love how she needs me.  I love looking at her face, watching her smile and playing with her.  One of my favourite things is watching Baby experience new things.  Seeing the world through her eyes.  Through eyes where many of her experiences are ‘new’.

Baby is almost ten months old and so she has experienced quite a few new things so far in her life.  I have had the pleasure of being there, with her, for all of them.

New 1stsAs you can see from our pictures, they are everyday moments, but to her they have all been new, exciting and special.  As her mum I get to experience all these things again, as if they are new to me also.  I can not wait to be by her side, as she continues to have these wonderful new experiences.

The Theme Game #1

The Reading Residence and Red Peffer have joined together to start a new series to challenge us all and help us get creative – The Theme Game.  Each week we are set a new theme and have to post something related to and inspired by that weeks theme.  This week the theme is Water.  I recently posted our trip to the beach, when Baby and I modelled for Mr Hubby to get some camera practice, an obvious fit for this theme.

However, I came across this quote and thought it was quite beautiful, teamed with a shot of Baby and I playing in the waves.  Every small seemingly inconsequential thing we do and say to our children, affects the person they will become.  Every ‘drop’  counts.
