Things I'm Loving

This is the first time linking up to


From Paisley Jade


 Things I'm loving this week.....

Many people warned me when Lil Miss was a baby
" With three older brothers, she is bound to be a tom boy"
Well so far, she's a princess! 
Sure she has learnt to stand her ground...
but she loves all things 'girly'.
( no influence here! I swear )



Playing with my late Nanas bead necklace
so special!

Also loving the new corner in our kitchen area, dedicated to Lil Misses toys, and the boys video games



Picnik.com!
If you haven't tried this site........ DO!
I'm hooked




Really would love to do this under the stairs in our new house
( when we build )




or this




And lastly loving that I think I have finally cracked Middle B's
dislike for reading. 
We have been reading



found here ( thankyou Grandma )

Its starts of easy and then gradually gets more challenging with each story.... I am really proud of him persevering with this.... and sorry school, but your books just don't grab his attention..... and he's still reading everynight, so this is what matters... am I right?

So lovely that she is a girly girl (even if she is a tough one at that!). I adore Picnik - love it so much!!

Nice images. It's good she's holding her ground as a girly girl. She'll have plenty of protection as she gets bigger from her brothers.

I always found Mads had better concentration reading small chapter books and books from the library rather than the school ones. It was a great way to get her to enjoy reading, as she was on the path to hating it with the school ones. And that reading nook under the stairs would be to die for!

Well done finding a way to engage you boy in reading. Love that your wee girl is holding her own among the boys... what a cutie!
