12/52 2014


Just one, simple photo, from one simple moment. Sometimes it is the simplest things that make a Mumma/Mummum happy. (Tamika calls me Mumma, Jarvis calls me Mummum). Looking over and seeing your two children so comfortable and cuddling up on the couch.

This week Jarvis has learnt to say Tamika's name. Okay, not really, but for the first time he is actually addressing her by something. The unfortunate thing is, he is shortening Tamika, who sometimes gets Teak, to Dick. This week all he talks about is Dick, he will say "Dick home", his way of asking if Tamika is coming over. Lucky for him, Tamika has had dinner with us every night this week, bar for Thursday night. During the day he will ask "Dick home" and if I am not quick enough he gets my mobile and calls her. Yes, he knows how to unlock it and phone his sister.

Last year Jodi inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. This year I have opted to continue with the series as I feel there are still so many family stories to be told through photos. So I will continue to Link up with Jodi  (the artist formerly known as Che & Fidel now Practising Simplicity) for the 52 Project.

  4. Sometimes it is the simple things your children do that make you so proud you are a parent

    AWWE That is so cute that he pulls out your phone to call her. This photo is precious! & Dom calls me "mama" seldom does he call me "mommy" or "mom"

  6. Is it bad that at two Jarvis knows how to unlock and dial his sister?

  7. That is the cutest thing ever. I can't believe he already knows how to use your phone! And Julie, congratulations on the wonderful news xoxox

  8. It freaks me just a little how quickly Jarvis learns new technologies. Tamika showed him the code on her I Phone and know he remembers it and can unlock her phone as well

    Beautiful photo.
    It is crazy how quickly they catch on to tech things…I suppose it is simply a part of their life.
    I love that he calls her Dick! I wonder if that name will stick?

  10. Think it may for awhile, as we are now calling her Dick as well
