sunny days with fatty and ratty...


It has been a beautiful sunny day in Brisbane so JJ popped around with her two children for a cup of coffee on the back deck, away from the boxes that still need unpacking. While the big kids were in the pool making the most of school holidays, our 4 youngest were having a lovely time splashing about in a paddling pool. While watching them we were having a giggle to ourselves over how different our two little-est girls looked in their birthday suits. JJ's children are of the chicken legged variety, while I produce toddlers with a much more cushie appearance. A while ago we nicknamed them Fatty and Ratty and we were reminded of this as they stood next to each other - only mothers can get away with names like this and we promise they will be well and truly forgotten by their teenage years!
