We sat outside late one Friday afternoon when Little Captain suddenly said “parrot”. It came flying in on the porch and out again when our dog, let’s call him King James (he surely acts as if he is king and we are his followers) barked loud and chased him away.

10 Interessante feite oor papegaaie. www.mommakingmemories.com

Ons het buite gesit een Vrydag middag to Klein Kaptein skielik sê “papegaai”. Okay, dit het dalk eerder geklink soos “pappa-taai” so ons het nie dadelik geweet waarvan hy praat nie… totdat die groen ringnek onder die stoep se dak invlieg. Die hond het die groen voël natuurlik dadelik met sy geblaf weggejaag, maar nadat ons die hond kon kalmeer het die papegaai teruggekom, op Spock (my man) kom sit en kos uit sy hand uit begin eet.

A friend told us they have the same problem with their son who is a few months older than Little Captain. What they do is to let him bath a toy animal (you can try your pet, but it might get a bit messy) so we tried it. It worked… for a while. I remembered about my stash Acornkids products that we used with my nephews and took out the Bathpops. Continue reading Bath time is fun-time with Acornkids Bathpops

What I love about winter


I realize not everyone likes winter. As a child I read a book about a poor little girl. One scene is set where she and her cat sat on the windowsill in the sun on one winter’s day. I have this image in my head when I think about winter: tranquil and peaceful. Another image I have is the family together in front of the fireplace with flames dancing in the cold.
