Eye Spy ... Beauty

I am super lucky, but sometimes I get wrapped up in life and forget to look around. Today - Poppy especially - I would lovingly call a tad feral. We tried lots of short term amusements and lots of short fuses. This is her face as soon as Dad got home after work where he had been on his feet all day and I am sure just wanted to sit down. She insisted that he take her out on the trampoline and her whole demeanour changed. I am so lucky to have children with a man that is so proud to be a Dad. He isn't perfect at it, and has been known to drive me nuts (I don't know who loves a fart joke more - Glen or Caleb), but the love that he has for them is nothing short of beautiful. It is even more special since after the city incident Poppy was a little anti-Dad for a while, best she remember who is the soft touch.
Thanks to Stacey for this weeks great theme, she is even having a sale in her shop too if you are in need of knitted beauty. I am hoping that Hoppo Bumpo can help us out next week. You can join in anytime, just add your link after you have posted below so we can all find you.
Also don't forget there is still a few days left for the giveaway.

The funny thing about kids is that they make you so busy that you get wrapped uyp in life... but they can make you stop and see what life is all about.
