What Tamsin said


Seeing that the sun was out, I thought that it would be a good day to air our duvet.   It was still early morning and I was still in my pyjamas under my bathrobe (or dressing gown as they would say here in England).  As soon as I stepped out, I felt the cold breeze and quickly retreated back inside the house.  I knew I needed more than just my bathrobe to shield me from the cold air and decided to wear my duffel coat on top of my robe and wear gloves too.  I must’ve looked liked a crazy woman, but when you’re in your own garden, who cares?  That’s when I heard a little voice say –

 You look lovely Mom! 

Here’s another one:  I was making her bed and my two-year old said – Good girl Mommy!   I thanked her and said that since she’s a “big girl” now she should actually be helping me.  She said okay and patted her bed twice.


Lying on the kitchen floor, she blurts out – I’m broken Mommy!  Fix me!


Here’s the Tam showing off her baby-book – That’s me Mommy!  That’s small Tamsin!
