So I haven't bored folks with stuff about my children for a while, I'be just bored people with blatherings about the day job.
My girl is 6 and my boy is 8 years old now, they are growing up in front of my eyes.
I can honestly say I loved them as babies and also as chaotic toddlers, but now they're little people with questions and opinions which are things I certainly want to encourage.
This is the best time for me so far, because we have shared interests. I'm in charge of their swimming lessons (used to race as a teenager), their favourite thing is riding their bikes and the eldest already likes tapping out a rhythm on a steep climb.
We go see films we all enjoy, we have in depth discussions on Star Wars, it's good.
Sometimes I worry that, despite the fact we've never pushed them into anything, only encouraged them to try as many things as they can and stick with the the things they love, my influence is there like it or not.
But that's daft, because Evie also does gymnastics, karate (green belt) while William is learning Scuba diving and is obsessed with animals and marine life.
And we all discovered Ninja Turtles together.
So I'm getting interested in what they discover too. I might have time soon to take up karate and will probably end up scuba diving too.
And then there's school topics. Egypt, The Tudors and Space are just a small bit of what they're learning now. It's great to rediscover some of this with them, I' m looking forward to doing ancient Greece with Will next year.
There's nothing more exciting than seeing the world through young eyes, or more rewarding.
