I don't think I even have to explain how hard it is to get a decent picture of these two where they're BOTH looking at the camera! Either Eduardo is smiling & Emilia stays glued to Sofia the First on the TV or Eduardo is crying and she's looking like the queen of sass. But such is the reality & beauty of life with two small children! Things are never perfect, often messy, sometimes difficult and always rewarding. Being a mother is probably the toughest job I've ever had but at the end of a very long day, when I'm looking frazzled and feeling exhausted, my makeup's smudged, shirt is milk-stained and my jeans are streaked with snot from two runny noses, I think of my little rugrats asleep in their beds and am reminded of how lucky I am to have them in my life <3
I feel like this Christmas is our most exciting yet...Emilia is old enough to understand that Santa Claus is coming and Eduardo has made our family complete! I whizzed around town like a mad woman today in a last-minute attempt to buy stockings (along with posting the our final few Christmas cards and doing a full-blown "weekly" shop that could probably feed our entire neighbourhood for the next month. Panic shopping anyone?!). I ended up buying the two pictured above from a home decor/gift shop called Nantucket and while I do love them, had I had more time I would have liked to get them personalised with the children's names. Oh well...there's always next year! At least I now have stockings for Santa to fill! How are you all organised for Christmas? Hopefully a bit better than me!
