"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013." via Che and Fidel

Jack: I was woken up the other morning by a light shining into my eyes and the sound of running water accompanied by singing. You came into my bedroom, turned on the light and had a shower in my ensuite. I applaud you for being organised and making sure you were ready to go to school, but hey, it was only 6.00am. Your mind is a beautiful thing!
Harry: I've spent the last three days sitting on a chair beside your hospital bed. Thankfully you are now much better, but I am exhausted.
Charlie: You too have come down with the dreaded lurgy - however you generally recover quickly, especially after a bowl of homemade chicken soup and a long sleep.
Oscar: You are forever moving that chair around the house to get at whatever it is you want to reach. Please don't go out that window - we are a long way up.


  1. Oh poor, sweet Harry...I am glad that he is feeling better!
    Being with your sick child at hospital has to be one of the worst parenting experiences.
    I remember the IV dramas and the exhaustion all too well...I hope that made enough chicken soup for you too and that you can crawl into next to Charlie and nap.

  2. Oh no! I am so sorry that your Harry was sick, there is nothing worse than a little person without their spark. I am pleased to hear he is feeling better. I wish you a restful and healthy week!

  3. Oh honey. A child in hospital is an awful thing. I hope he's on the mend. Beautiful photos. xx

  4. Oh no, poor Harry. I'm please to hear he's much better now. Hope this week is more restful than the last for you. x

  5. Oh goodness! poor Harry! poor you! I hate emergency room and hospital visits with my sorry. hope he continues to get better.

    these are just beautiful captures. again. xo

  6. I'm so sorry for your sweet Harry. I hope all is well now. As always, lovely photos of your busy boys.

  7. Oh that poor chook Harry, and poor you too. Hope you have some extra hands this week to give you a break. Hope your contract is all sorted and you have a start date, will provide some much needed excitement through the dreaded winter lurgy months. mel x
