a quote from my family, once a week, every week.


(it was raining outside)
lady: hey ho, you know how to stop the rain? with magic!

(at dinner)
kiddo: dad, are tardis real?
mister: they're no more real than wookies.
me: so, real then.

mister: are you super?
lady: I'm super cool tricks!

mister: if you had one hundred dollars what would you buy?
kiddo: lego!
mister: lego?!
kiddo: I love lego more than anything dude!
mister: I thought you loved your sister more than anything.
kiddo: that's a different kind of love.

lady: I'm not a unicorn or a lady. I'm just a rosy.

this was a pretty fun week for us. we went to check out where we'll most likely have our wedding shindig, which is where I took these snaps. and the kiddo WON the young archie prize in his age group (!!!). if you're in sydney you can see his drawing of his sister hanging in the art gallery of nsw until the 28th of september along with the grownup archibald portraits and the other amazing artworks by the other kid finalists.

16/52 a quote a week projecta quote from my family, once a week, every week.

kiddo: exciting days in winter, like the book parade, go too fast. they should go for longer.

lady: where's papa?
me: at work.
lady: I want him to come home now!

kiddo: why is sunday called sun day when it's not always sunny?

kiddo: sometimes I'm good, and sometimes I'm bad.
me: yes, that's being human.


we were hanging about outside the art gallery when the mister picked the kids up and put them on his shoulders. the kiddo often says he wants to be a dad when he grows up, I think his papa's awesomeness has something to do with this. I just love these people.

15/52 a quote a week
a quote from my family, once a week, every week.

me: what did you play at lunch time?
kiddo: we played 'be whoever you want.'
me: who were you?
kiddo: myrtle.
me: why myrtle?
kiddo: 'cause I was a turtle. do you know why I was a turtle? because I have a new trick where I pull my jumper like this (mimes lifting his jumper over his head).

lady: you my mama and my best friend.

kiddo: rose doesn't mind when I touch her face. in the morning when I wake up, I touch her face and she holds my hand.

(while reading charlie and lola)
lady: like me! (meaning lola) and we would play together, and fall down together, and eat lollipops!

14/52 a quote a week
a quote from my family, once a week, every week.

the kiddo standing by his papa looking at this large oil painting at the art gallery of nsw. I showed him the link to the painting just now. this is what he said.

me: remember this?
kiddo: yes. (pauses. thinking.) it's the same battle where humpty dumpty fell off the wall.

***

we were all excited to be at the gallery this week. as a finalist in the young archie competition, the kiddo has his drawing hanging on the wall, which we got to see for the first time.

he also joined the other finalists in receiving a certificate presented by richard morecroft. (who, as an aside, I watched on the abc news every single night of my life growing up.)

*** 

it's super important to me that the kids feel I love them and am proud of them for who they are, not for what they do. but it was definitely a proud moment to see him acknowledged for his art. also, I was really pleased for him. he loves doing his drawings so much.

I asked him what his favourite part of the evening was. catching the train with the family? eating at the gallery with the grandparents? seeing the paintings? he said being presented with the award. (and here's his reaction when he found out he was a finalist.)

a quote from my family, once a week, every week.

me: what kind of mud would you like?
kiddo: mud that was ... are you writing this down?
me: a bit.
kiddo: mud that's not too thick and not not too deep and not too rocky.

lady (resting her head on my belly and looking at me): you my lovely mum in the whole world. like dad and max.

me: how does it feel to be 17?
teen: it feels pretty good to wear a crown in the morning.
