Currently my 15yo and 3yo are sitting outside on a swing seat and singing Home Among The Gumtrees at the top of their lungs

I'm couch ridden, unable to walk or move, so I'm pretty depressed today.
DF bought DD to me at 3am so I could feed her (I usually go and get her myself, and I was devastated that I couldn't). She was half asleep but smiled and cooed throughout her entire feed. Then went back to sleep straight afterwards, which is rare when DF does it.
DF is doing everything for DD and me today. He is being absolutely wonderful. He is truly an amazing man.
I've signed up for conversational Japanese lessons in town, and they are allowing me to bring DD. I thought I'd miss out, but they are happy to work with us.

This happened last night, but it still makes me smile.
My ds (2y4m) was 'helping' dh in the toilet. All I heard was 'No, I don't need directional help' and 'Thanks, but daddy isn't ready to shake yet.' I don't think my dh was appreciating ds's help.

Watching my dd sit very still while she got her face painted for the first time... Then looking in the mirror and very excitedly telling me "mummy I'm a tiger"

DD's very excitedly showing me their blue toenails "just like Mummy" that my sister did for them whilst looking after them last night.

My baby's first giggle! She thought mummy was hilarious!
Oh and her smiles - at the moment they are just for me and our bedroom curtains! lol Her whole face lights up when she sees the curtains....!

DD (almost 6) started doing Little Athletics in late September and this weekend was her first Medal Day weekend.
From all 5 events she entered she came home with 5 Medals. Seeing how excited she was getting her first medals, still has me smiling. DH and I are very proud of her and the way she handled it this weekend and having lots of fun in the meantime.
Almost forgot one that made my heart melt this morning. DS 7yrs gave his sister a big hug this morning, then proceeded to tell her that he loves her following up with a big kiss on her cheek. DS is not one to give kisses very often
