About the creativity of my children? Chubba Bubba is quite the artist, don’t you think?
The Bear is unwell again. Nothing major, just a cough, but enough to have us hunkering down for the day. A movie marathon, some craft, a few books. Cuddles, songs and trains. A spot of fresh air once the crispness of a spring morning has given way to the dry heat of an early summer day. Chilling out and spending time together. Naps. Naps are
