“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Noah: Doing his homework. Writing isn’t something that has come super easy for my boy, but I’m extremely proud of the hard work and effort he’s put in lately – and it’s starting to pay dividends.

Isabelle: Those eyes, those lips, that perpetually messy hair. Despite almost nightly hair washing, using detangling spray and me constantly re-doing her hair style; it has a mind of it’s own. I think it’s time for a hair cut! 

Pipi:  A rare smile from the beginning of the week. My littlest has been a bit under the weather this week. She’s had a nasty cold since Mon/Tues and then came down with a massive rash on Friday. That morning I learned that even if your child seems to have all the symptoms of measles and there happens to be a bit of an outbreak in Auckland, it doesn’t automatically translate that the actually have the measles. A trip to the doctor later and he’s diagnosed: a viral rash, ear infection, nasty cold and teething. We really are fortunate with the great medical care we have in New Zealand

O gosh they are adorable! If it helps, I too have a 3 year old girl who had a rats nest every morning in her hair. I started braiding (a teeny tiny braid) her hair in the evening two weeks ago for the first time and it helps immensely! Washing dries out hair, I wash it once a week with a very gently shampoo and use conditioner on the ends and a bit of coconut oil on the tips. I don't know if you know but there are lots of tips for gentle hair care over there!
