It's never too late...

to say how much I love + appreciate you mate.

To the one who suggests a bushwalk + then packs the bags with safe food and drinks...

to the one who adores his kids + loves making them laugh...

who will have a crack at almost anything (normal or crazy!) I suggest like EC even (!)...


who has learnt how to comfort crying babies + children (even though it is still a difficult task)...

to the one one who takes us to the movies as a family treat...

who holds his kids close + tells them many times a day how much they are loved...

to the one who is like a son to my dad + loves my family...

who, as hard as it has been at times, has gotten on board with understanding what Autism means, how to help our Liji boy + discern in the Lord what is right for our son (and our family)...


to the one who has embraced adhering to the safe diets (despite how overwhelming and tricky and time consuming they can be) who enjoys finding safe things to cook for our kids. To the one who knew the kids had been interested in learning how pasta was made, saw a pasta maker in the Aldi catalogue and went and bought one + then cooked it with the kids....


who runs himself ragged playing with our kids at the park + even the mother's group kids when we all go out together...

who enjoys taking us out to our fave cafe for a treat...
to the one who supports the learning that goes on around here + who leads us in activities around the Feasts of God...


who plays sport in the backyard + plants healthy veggies to eat...

to the one who thinks that my suggestion to go to Dee Why beach more than 2 hours away, to have chips + fish on the beach for dinner when it is 4.30 in the arvo, is NOT crazy...

to you who goes and buys a tent for the kids + then endures enjoys the night out there with his sons for a sleepout...


to the one who supports me + loves me through so much...

all we say is we love you...
to the best daddy in the world who is flawed like me, trying to just do his best in raising his children, to you mate who falls short often just as I do + yet is willing to apologise to our kids when he gets it wrong...
love you. love you. and then some.

love you sweetheart even through all the ups and downs :)
5 things I am thankful for today:
1. All the support I've had regarding breastfeeding
2. The comfort of the Holy Spirit. A dear friend of mine is going through a really rough patch and just knowing that the Lord is there for her comforting her, rejoicing over her with singing and quietening her with His love. Still tough but the Lord is getting her through. Thank you Lord :)
3. My family. Having a beautiful day with my mum + dad, my loving in-laws too on Sunday for Father's Day. Just so blessed that our kids have both sets of their grandparents around loving them, playing with them, reading to them, laughing with them, listening to them, helping them and so much more.
4. The dietician - good things to learn from her
5. Brett cooking tea as I work on Liji's homeschool program for our obos visit :)
Love + blessings,

Hi everyone :)
I am blessed! But we do have our ups and downs just like anyone else. Still, I am so thankful to the Lord for my Brett.

Tara - EC is going well still. We went through a phase at about 11 weeks when i kept mis-reading her cues but it has evened out again now. I'm not like some people with it but it has been a great thing to learn and do for her. Have you ever done it with any of yours? Love to you mate!
