(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Shannyn had dress up day at Kinder for Book week last Friday.

This was her book of choice (image credit)


Even though she looks more like the Dingo from Wombat Stew, she in fact wanted to be the puppy from the end of Dear Zoo. What the costume lacks in substance, Shannyn made up for in enthusiasm, a big step up for a child who is quite shy when it comes to being involved in these sorts of activities.

Among the plethora of Tinkerbells and Buzz Lightyears (more about that in a different post!) My 'puppy' joined in with the best of them! I'd keep her, wouldn't you? Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys - it must be Wednesday!

Happy Blog Day everyone! Nuffnang are helping us share some bloggy love by encouraging a big fat sharing day! It's easy - choose 6 Blogs you love (not necessarily the really famous ones) tell everyone why, and share 'em with all and sundry!
Here are mine ........

1 - Kate Says Stuff
I have known Kate for a helluva long time, she constantly amazes me with her outlook on life, she can find the silver lining on every cloud, the rainbow after the rainstorm. If you want strength and inspiration, look no further.

2 - The Organised Housewife
Now the winner of the AusMumpreneur Best Blog 2011 award, Katrina is the guru when it comes to all things neat and tidy. She inspired this to happen in my house, and things have slowly become more organised here!

3 -Little Brown Pen
Having done very little travel in my lifetime, I love to lose myself in Nichole's "colours of Paris' project. A series of photos that bring another world into my home. She sells her prints on Etsy, and I am seriously considering some for my bedroom makeover.

4 - A Little Space Like Home
Ah, Mandy, Mandy, Mandy - if it were not for you I would be blissfully ignorant of the torture that has been the C25K running challenge! You are my inspiration that it can be done. A fellow Melbournite, she shares her craft, recipe and activity ideas for all to enjoy!

5 - Daisy Roo and Two
A Mum, three kids, and the epic story of THE PRAM! Dasiy writes so authentically and invites you to share her adventures with Roo, and Two!

6 -First Tuesday Book Club
For fans of the show, you can follow along with Jennifer Byrne, learn what they are reviewing next, and past reviews. Great if you are looking for new material for your reading lists!

Loud Shirt Day

When we took Ashlee for her 12 month old visit to the health nurse, we were advised to seek further assesment with her hearing. At the time she would tkae ages to respond to voices, and seemed to have trouble forming her first words.
 I am so greatful that now, at nearly three she ignores us by choice! Her hearing is fine and speech is developing well. For many kids however, they will need help, this is where the amazing folk at First Voice come in.
If you read Woogsworld (and if you don't WHY NOT?) You will know she has a son named Jack. What you may not know is how First Voice has helped him.
Loud Shirt Day , on October 21st is an intiative to raise funds so that First Voice can continue to help children all across Australia and New Zealand.
So, which will it be?......

Hmm, the one in the middle takes my fancy!
