A treasured week

IMG_4632

This past week we had the opportunity to have Jacki and the kids stay with us!

We started our preparations on the weekend, Deeja and Soos got out the drill and put up child proof latches on the two entertainment centers. I took all cleaning products and stored them in our laundry room. I purchased foods that the boys seem to like and made a toy center. We were ready!!

Jacki arrived with the kids in the morning, we unloaded and set up for her stay. The boys adjusted amazingly well and had fun playing with their aunts and uncles.

We tried to make it relaxing for Jacki, a little break, but of course she did work on her computer and insisted on pitching in!! She is a hard worker and said she needed to be productive.

The boys wanted to put Auntie’s socks and shoes on and woke Uncle Heme up each day!

Auntie Foof came some mornings and Auntie Saleeha came in the evenings.

 

To be totally honest, this is a dream that I could have never imagined. Don’t ever give up hope and keep those dreams alive.

  7. Lynn they are adorable, but they could get into trouble very easily. Good idea to child proof everything. Beware of any lengthy periods of quiet, but I’m sure you know this already.

  14. Lovely of you to plan and cater for such gatherings! You must be exhausted once it ends but definitely happy with family together. I love the closeness and warmth of your family instead of the cold, aloof and selfishness I face from almost non existent siblings. You are lucky. Keep the fire burning Lynz. You are doing great! Garfield hugs and a happy Sunday😊

  24. Great pics – child proofing is very important as those little boys would get into anything! Good thing your daughter has two feet – did either of the boys get a sock on her feet?

      • I spent 24 precious hours with my second daughter (the one that lives in KL and has had a horrible year) in Barcelona Friday/Saturday. The power of mumma’s who have kept their brood together is immense but your story really gives me so much hope for the future …. I look at those little boys and their baby sister and I think the future beckons and all shall be well. Thank you Lynn – you are more inspiring to me than you probably know xxxx
