daily pleasures

I came round the corner this morning and under our list of things to buy and meal ideas for the week was this drawing, my middle child - the very nearly four year old had just finished, she explained it was a caterpillar holding balloons (and yes those are doors all over it's body). very time I look at it, I can't help but chuckle. kids are funny.

Nice quiet moments - busy on the day's masterpieces... or is it rock painting day again?

New life- the seeds have woken and every day the children rush out in their stocking feet to see how the little sweet peas have grown (we planted them a week or so ago). Small moments of joy, for them and for A. and I watching.


  1. I like the caterpillar with doors and windows. And I'm so proud of myself: I looked at those seedlings and even before I saw 'sweet peas', I knew what they were! Now if I could only figure out what the other two zillion plants growing in my garden were...

  2. Planting seeds and seeing them sprout is such a pleasant experience. Love the caterpillar....well done girl!! It's amazing how much kids like to mess up with paints ooops sorry not mess up but colour ;) (in my house this includes a metre radius around the child too)

  3. she is going to be the next Salvador Dali, I just know it!

    But hopefully she won't have the mustache.
    Or the mental issues.

    The talent is definitely there though!

  4. A caterpillar holding balloons! Of course it is. Brilliant.

  5. Yes- pure genius this one, quite a lot of abstract work goes on... which demands a good deal of explanation. This child collects rocks and dreams of chocolate. Her drawings usually include one or the other element so this caterpillar was out of the clear blue.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
