4/52 (2013)

I heard a little strumming coming from out on the front deck so went to investigate… this is what I found. He was not impressed that he had been discovered (he likes to sing alone) and stomped off down the stairs to avoid my stare and praise.

Daddy has been away this week, so I have been single mumming it, it’s actually been quite peaceful- not because Adam wasn’t here;) but more because I have don’t been working and have had more time than usual to focus on the babes. I had a special little moment with Ammon as he was laying in the bath and I was washing his hair, pouring the water over his head and washing out his shampoo. He was being very brave (usually he freaks out and screams the house down when it is hair washing time- he is completely phobic of water getting in his eyes/ears). I was chatting away about how it’s actually quite relaxing having your hair washed, and quite enjoyable when you choose not to be afraid. I asked him if he was enjoying the water running through his hair. He was staring at me intently and then, instead of replying, simply said “I’m going to wash your hair one day mum”. I replied saying that would be lovely.
He then got even more serious, and said, “Mum, one day, I’m going to marry you”. I started to giggle. Oh Ammon, but I am already married to Daddy… “No but I’m going to marry you!” I smiled and reminded him that because I was married to Daddy in God’s temple, and he was our son, it was kinda already like he was married to me, because he was mine and we could always be together, now and after we die we would always be family. I loved the little smile that crept across his face after.

On Sunday, it started to rain… and I mean RAIN! The wind howled around the house, and the rain pelted against the windows. Abe was quite fascinated and wanted to eat his afternoon tea looking out of the window. He was quite mesmerised by all the water. Ammon just wanted to play in his umbrella “cubby” out the front. (Mind you that was before the wind picked up!). At one point I got a little worried that the neighboring tree might fall on our house- but we were lucky to escape unscathed. Nana and Poppa didn’t get off so easy and spend a frantic afternoon buying tarps and trying to keep the water from flowing into their house extension that is underway:/

Such a cheeky grin!
