My happiness - my kids

I don't know how often I rob my kids with my mood. Yesterday I chose to be different. Monkey number one had his end of season hockey break up at Chipmunks and as a family we had fun. I loved see their eyes light up as Mummy laughed and played. They were excited to pose for photo's to capture this bright, happy, moment in our lives, which hasn't been a regular happening for quite some time now.

Look at the pride on monkey 1's face as he receives his certificate and medal:

My hubby and I decided after a long discussion last night that we need to make these family fun outings more of a regular thing. We have agreed on at least twice a month to do something together and make the aim to enjoy each other's company, all 5 of us.

These faces really make it worth it.

The kids had a heap of fun and the best part is I did too!

Some one once said that joy isn't in things, it is in US!


  1. WOW! Monkey #1 looks just like his dad in that first photo! Unreal! I'm so glad you had such a good time. x

  2. Gorgeous kids - family days are the best - I wish we could have more of them

  3. glad you had such a good time, my children are all very similar ages to yours and it is a mission to get out, but so worth it when the planets collide to make it happen :)

  4. I know how you feel I only make the effort when there is a good enough excuse to go. Three children is sometimes easier to manage at home where you can yell and no one judge your "horrible" parenting! Too often I talk myself out of going and then when I finally make the - hard - effort, it usually turns out better than planned or worse than imagined. So it feels like I am playing with fire and sometimes it is so much safe to just be home.
