A Busy Beautiful Life

Although the “My Pigeon Pair” blog has been quiet, life for “My Pigeon Pair” has been anything but!

So for a little catch up…..

Master O turned 5!  This birthday was huge for him.  He has now entered the age of counting down the sleeps to major events!  As family rules dictate he was allowed to invite 5 friends (the number of your age!)  Five children does not sound like alot but it felt like twenty!  It rained, they had to stay inside and we quickly ran out of things to do!


Little Miss A is about to turn 2.  She is all girl.  Usually found with a handbag, hat, jewellery and baby doll.  It takes us forever to get in the car for the school run as she HAS to take three “babies” with her.  She has just discovered hi-5 and will copy the dance moves!  In fact she copies everything!  Including imitating Master O saying his sight words! She is busy and QUIET! So different from Master O who is the definition of LOUD and ejects noise 24/7, yes even in his sleep!  Problem is she is quiet and into everything. You will take your eyes off her for a minute and you will find her stripped off and running in the mud!

Life is busy.  I am loving helping in the mornings in Master o’s classroom.  It is what I imagined life as a school mum would be like.  The morning routine is crazy and after school not much better, and we are yet to start afterschool activities!  There have been days I have struggled with the work life balance.  More than any other year as now there will be things I miss out on at Master O’s school.  Not always being there certainly takes some getting used to.

The house is still a decor work in progress but slowly we are getting there.  Will update you on some little projects we have undertaken!

So that’s it.  We are here.  Just.  Crazy, busy, caotic, hectic.  But living this beautiful life and loving it!


  1. So good to hear an update – little Miss A is just at my absolute favourite age – i loved the 1-2 years stage! she looks adorable!

  2. They are so cute and looking grown up! Thanks for the update!

  3. Sounds like you’ve been busy. Hectic actually! I love Miss A’s outfit – such a gorgeous age when they just want to be like mum!

  4. Its scary when you hear them saying things you say!

  5. You’re almost miss 2 sounds just like my 19month old. She also loves bags, hats and babies! But he is not quiet. None of my kids are!

    • I never imagined two loud and talkative parents could have such a quiet child! Maybe she is lulling us into a false sense of her personality and saving her talking for the back chatty 5 year old stage!

  6. You have been busy, haven’t you? I hope things settle down and you can find some time for yourself…

    Getting used to the new routine takes time, but it will soon be second nature.

  7. How lovely to read your updates, and to see the photos too. Denyse X

    The older our bubs get, the busier we seem. I’m glad everything is going so well for you! The birthday party might have been a bit if a washout, but that happy face suggests a great day was had by the birthday boy! Happy FIVE, big boy! x
