20 things to do now you are 8


Dear son,

Here we are again, another birthday. It must be me but they seem to be coming around faster each year. I wish I could capture this magical time and hold it perfectly in my mind to take out and look back on but memory has a habit of fading like those old Polaroid photos in the box in the attic.

This has been a year filled with wonder and growth. You have learned so much and you seem so much more comfortable in your own skin. You have this amazing gift of making people laugh and that out of control giggle is totally infectious. It is your caring nature and kindness towards others that has really hit me this year, you are the first one there when one of your team mates falls, the one to pass the tissue for someone's tears and the first to say sorry.

Birthdays always make me slightly melancholy; you're too big for Papa's shoulders and don't do kisses in public anymore but this year I want to look ahead and think about the fun we are still to have together.

Friday Focus: DJ party


Dear friend,

Welcome to my new Photo series Friday Focus. I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer focus.

This week's Friday Focus is... DJ party. My big lad has been having DJ lessons since September. The music school arranged for them to play in a cafe in Leiden. You can read about it here in my Glimpse into our autism post.

Now I'll let my photos and video do the talking...
