Once upon a Wednesday | Party Time for Charlie Bear
It was such a delight to celebrate with this little guy at his 6th birthday party earlier this month. I ADORE this photo of Mum and Son and I love the connection between these two kindred spirits.
Charlie had lots of fun with his friends and big bro’ Jack on the BIG bouncy castle and it was soon time for some serious birthday present opening. I’m not sure who was more excited … Charlie or Jodie … when he opened our little tinned gift of “make your own insect house” but I know they’ll both enjoy it!
This guy… just adorable!
Big bro Jack always finds time to sit alongside Oupa and I LOVE that he’s now happy when I want to capture a moment. For a long time he really wasn’t happy with that so for a while, I backed off and now I always ask. And he obliges. Thank you Jack… I so need captures like these!
Alfie has always been the most vocal of the cats and he always joins us as we sit and catch up around the table. (So many wonderful conversations and fun have been had around this table!) He was the runt of the litter although you wouldn’t think so now and he always seems to have a cross face. (That’s my polite way of saying it!)
We loved hearing about Charlie’s place on the School Council and he asked Oupa to put his badge on for him.
Ta da! This is our School Councillor! Way to go Charlie! Now if you’re like me, you wonder what a School Councillor at the age of 6 does… they apparently have meetings to decide when they’re going to have a slipper day or a pyjama day and other such activities! So sweet!
Charlie, Charlie Bear, Champagne Charlie, Chocolate Charlie (ahhhh… you are your Nana’s boy!), we are super proud of you and the beautiful, sweet natured and gentle boy that you are, and we love you all the world!
