Our 3 bedroom townhouse in the inner city burbs of Brisbane was certainly a hustling and bustling home this weekend gone.
4 sets of little feet littered our space over the course of 2 days along with 7 sets of big feet, all helping build, eat, clean and entertain!
Come Monday, after a weekend full of entertaining children, adults and non stop cooking, a work day is the last thing you want. But now, late Monday night and absolutely exhausted from our busy weekend, I am incredibly grateful!
Grateful to have had my 3 year old nephew and 5 year old niece stay the night while my sister and her husband enjoy time to themselves!
Grateful to hear my husband take our little nephew to bed way past his bedtime on Saturday night, read him a story and have him fall asleep straight away – after I had previously tried!
Grateful that my beautiful niece was so filled with excitement while making Valentine’s gifts of heart shaped cookies and painted hearts for a gift when her mum and dad got home!
And absolutely loving the fact that my 3 year old nephew thought Kookaburra’s laughing sounded like “monkey birds”…..which is just so EXACTLY what they sound like. The world through the fresh wide eyed view of a little kid!
Completely grateful that now, exhausted, its a weekend that was full, with an untidy house, multiple bouts of vacuuming, sweatiness, a day where I had no time to even think about how I looked – but time that I got to spend (in our house!) with nearly all our families!!!
Now time for sleep 😉
