This is a collaborative post. When my daughter and son went to school I was a tad upset. It was something that I really wasn’t keen on happening; it meant that they were growing up, and faster than I wanted to. It was worst when Stuntboy went to school, he was the little baby in(…)
Last week, I shared a bit of my son’s singing talents with you as he performed some of the well known hits from his harvest festival. I think it is only fair if I give my daughter a bit of airtime this week as well. She had her festival a couple of days after my(…)
