Today I told Abby we were going on an adventure. Most kids would jump up with excitement but no. My child slumps her shoulders and mournfully addresses the fact she will miss school. Whatever. weirdo. Anyhow I continued on to tell her that we will be looking at dinosaurs, and huge beasts of the past along with lots of other cool stuff. Adding that we will be transporting it by train got her going. The real reason we were heading into the city and skipping school was I needed to be in there first thing to settle some paperwork for a meeting but since i hard to haul both kids with me I decided to make a day of it and organise a nice surprise for abby. Ive been feeling some Mummy guilt that I don't get to spend as much time with her. Having a new baby brother and starting school has left our Mummy Daughter time to Zilch.
the trip was really good, we spent about 20 minutes ruling up and down a corridor trying to figure out where a dinosaur roar was coming from. Abby declared it must be the real dinosaurs hiding. We were pleasantly surprised at how big Tasmanian Tigers were and equally grossed out by the spider displays. All the while a tired and fussy baby Dante slept against my chest. It was a great day and I highly recommend it as a must do with your kids.

Every week we have ballet so thought I'd take the time to capture this weekly ritual. Abby will wake up and have breakfast of her choosing. This morning she decided Peanut butter by the spoonful was appropriate (she gets that from my husband not me I swear). I also decided to hand over my camera and let her take a few shots from her perspective, not bad either! Which was nice to be included in documenting this day as I normally am behind the camera in all our family photos.
After ballet we normally get lunch a coffee and a baby chino. In the middle of summer its Boost Juices, regardless. we treat ourselves. I am so glad to have taken the time to do this, while Ive been taking time to notice the little things about this day, Ive come to realise its so short lived. Abby will be going to school and our little lunch dates will be few and far between. Something Ive been taking for granted.
