Every day for the past two weeks, I've opened this book to this page, and smiled as I've run my fingers over these three printed words. "Dedicated to Bianca." That's me! I'm not sure that I believe that someone would dedicate a book to me - what an incredible honour it is! I feel beyond lucky, so grateful and so many other feelings that I don't really have words for. The book is a children's book called 'Jump The Line' by John O'Callaghan, a close family member but more than that, he's a dear friend. He was so much fun when I was a kid and it was so easy to transition into a friendship with him as an adult. There aren't many adults that have the ability to be that person with everyone, not just me! Anyway, now, not surprisingly, he's written a beautiful children's book with a message that is more important today, than it ever has been in our lives (you'll have to read it to find out!). I'm so lucky to have John, I hope each of you has a ''John' in your life. xxxx
18 months old today and his favourite things to do are be outside, be outside, be outside and, did I mention be outside? He also loves to say outside, stand at the window and look outside and cry when he can't go outside. Oh, and he does enjoy reading the same book over and over 1200 million times 😂💓 #love #toddler #toddlerlife #outside #happy #instakids
"Outside! Soccer! Outside! Soccer!" Is pretty much all I've heard him say this week. Finally today was nice enough to venture out after being trapped inside for daaaaaays 💛
"Hold my hand, Mama. You know I don't like to (pretend I can't) walk on my own." 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😂#toddler #walking #notwalking #holdmyhand #always #comeonmum #park #parkdays #playdate #sunday #fun #love #happy
It's been a wearing few weeks under our roof. Kahari was sick for what seemed like FOREVER, followed by the sad and unexpected passing of a young relative. So a impromptu family trip to the beach was in order to recharge, smell the fresh air and draw in the healing energy of the sea. Now for some rest and better, brighter days ahead 💓💓💓#sleep #rest #relax #weekend #winter #windy #safetybeach #blowingagale #betterdaysahead #goodvibesonly
Kahari has been so sick recently 😷😩So today, I thought we should try cooking together. His job was to roll the apricot balls in the coconut. He must think roll means something other than roll, because instead, he flicked coconut all over the kitchen and rubbed coconut in his hair while taking a bite out of every one I gave him to roll. Well, at least he ate something...right? 🤷🏻‍♀️ #foodstrike

Sometimes we dream about our future house in a small village by the sea with the jungle as our backyard 🌴🌺☀️ #burehbeach #sierraleone #africa #oneday #soonihope #dream #jungle #drawing #notthebest #love
The best way to end the day? Watching the washing machine with papa, of course! 👶🏽💓👱🏿#hisfavorite #GoodFriday #sleepnow #fatherandson #happyboy #love
Can someone please explain to me why a bag of about 8 #organic apples, that haven't been sprayed, haven't been waxed, haven't been tampered with in any way, just left to grow #naturally, cost me $10?! 🍎😐#doesntmakesense #confused #apples #goodmorning
Cooped up indoors and dreaming of life in a tropical place where the rooms in our house are painted bright, there's plants all around and patterns exploding everywhere 🌴💕💙☀️ @b.dakin #letsgetouttahere #colour #dreaming #tropical #pattern #dreambig
Reading books is the only time I can get him to sit still these days. Surprisingly he doesn't try to climb me or crawl off when we read (he does try to chew the books though 😳). This book, 'Leo Loves Babytime' is one of our favourites. Kahari and Leo share a lot in common and they look similar, which as he gets older, will become more important to him...we are yet to find a book where mum and bub don't look the same though. And if we could find a book where mum and bub look different and it's not the focus of the story, what a winner that would be! 👩🏻👶🏽💓#12months #toddler #reading #littleboy #lovesbooks #diversity #love #happy
When you turn one (!!!) and the washing machine is your favourite show on tv 📺 #onetoday #notababyanymore #bigboy #happyboy #happybirthday #washingmachine #love
