Where did the years go?

How time has flown. Came across this photo today and couldn't believe how much my little girl has grown up. Miss Middle is 10 now (going on 17) and loves to dance , sing and basically perform. She is a beautiful little girl and I hope she stays that way into her teenage years. LOL

Many years ago in Scotland on a warm day. Whilst walking around the back garden of my sisters home. I had a daisy picked for me by my beautiful wee niece and nephew. Do you know what made me think of this.... Well I was going through some old stuff as you do trying to clear out papers etc when I came across a wee purse on a chain for your keys and inside that purse was the DAISY..... I could hardly believe it but it was as flat as a pancake as I had pressed it and put it in there to store only to find it 14 or so years and one continent later. I have put it in my to keep pile for I love the memory that it has with it. And guys as you get older I can still remember you calling it a pity fower. Even as you turn into adults and even although your many many miles away and even if you don't remember me I will always hold onto these precious memories of you both. And these are the reasons I love you so... Nearly crying now.. Grow up well and walk tall guys for you are surely something to be proud of. Love you kids

My Supermen ....Move over Vin Diesel

These are the two most special men in my life (with the exception of my daddy and my lovely wee nephews. Well one is wee and one is not so wee. And not forgetting my bro and G).
I love them all. This picture was taken in our Lounge at Christmas 2005 .....2/12/05 to be exact. Our little boys 1st birthday. He is wearing a matching Superman Tee-shirt to his daddy. J is a wonderful father to all three of our kids, he never fails to get down and dirty to play sport or anything with them. Hand ball ,play station anything active and he likes to win lol. You should hear them lol all very competative but good with the compliments for each others efforts. I love them dearly.

Proud to be a "Banana Bender"

This is where I live ... Brisbane Queensland Australia....

This first picture is of Southbank.. which is a kids heaven especially on a hot summers day.

This second picture is off the city by night, I seem to forget the simple beauty of Brissy the longer I live here. The bridge here is the Story bridge. Brisbane is known as the river city.

"Happy Mothers Day"

What makes good mothers? It is a pertinent question whose answer cannot be contained within a few words. Mothers comprise of a bundle of emotions that sometimes defy reason. So this goes out to all the mothers who have kept awake all night with their sick toddlers in their arms, constantly uttering those compassionate words, "It's OK honey, Mommy's here."For all the mothers who run carpools and make cookies and sew Halloween costumes. And all the mothers who don't.For those who show up at work with milk stains on their dress and diapers in their handbags.For those mothers who cannot restrain tears from trickling down their cheeks when they hold their babies for the first time in their arms; and for the mothers who give birth to babies they'll never see.For the mothers who gave homes to babies and gifted them a family.For the mothers who yell at their kids who clamour for ice cream before dinner.For the mothers who defy all odds just to watch her kid perform and repeat to themselves"That's my child!!"For all the mothers who read "Goodnight, Moon" twice a night for a year, and then read it again. "Just one more time."For the mothers who taught their children to tie the shoelaces even before they started going to school. For the mothers who incontinently turn their heads when they hear the word "Mom",even though they know that their kids are nowhere around.For the mothers who silently shed tears for their children who have gone astray.For all those mothers whose heart aches to watch her son or daughter disappear down the street, walking to school alone for the very first time.For all the mothers of the victims of all these school shootings, and the mothers of those who were involved in the shooting.For the mothers of the Survivors, and the mothers who sat in front of their TVs in horror, clinging to their child who just arrived from school safely.So, this is meant for all the young and aged mothers, working mothers and housewives, married mothers and the single mothers, those with money and without and for those without whom life would have been insufferable. .....
Wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!!

Straight from the kids mouth.

7 reasons not to mess with children.
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah". The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl replied, "Then you ask him".
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute."
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honor" thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?" Without pausing one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, "Thou shall not kill."
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white." The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"
The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture."Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a doctor.' A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher, she's dead."
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face." "Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little fellow shouted,"Cause your feet ain't empty."
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."
