Postponed 1st birthday pop in due to Covid but we got there! #frankie
Happy Mother’s Day to my Mum, Christine. When my Dad passed suddenly she was 44 with 4 kids aged 21 to 14. I know how crucial in ally is in parenting toddlers and young kids, and can only imagine being on your own raising teenagers, dealing with your own grief and a complete of change of career. I’ll turn 40 next year (😬 ) and 44 suddenly seems scarily real. Mum and Dad were always supportive of us (even if she was against me going to Otago as I had a perfectly good bed at home and could go to Victoria ), she didn’t bat an eyelid when I wanted to move to New York for a summer the year Dad died. Mum is always there for us - when I needed icing sugar for Frankie’s cake and the supermarket line was out the door I rang her and she left it in her letterbox. Lucy remarked “Grandma always has what we need and she always has everything prepared before she even knows what we want!” Happy Mother’s Day Mum - thank you for all you do.
Frankie Do turns ONE. Bit of a different birthday but what does it matter when you’re one! Frankie made us slow down long before Covid-19 and take time to look around and see everything through fresh eyes again. Lucky we ticked off 5 countries early as this is really holding back her tally! We love you so much Frankie Margaret ❤️
And here is the proof! Thanks @butler4712 😂
Afternoon spent baking @magnoliakitchen s’mores brownies and chocolate chip cookies - Lucy wanted to sell them to raise money for the Koala’s in Australia. If you want to buy some or make a donation to her cause (Josh is matching $4 to every $1 ) then let me know! ❤️
