2 the Moon

Instead of the theme “2 the moon” it felt like we might as well be on the moon. Another wee one’s birthday celebrated in the great outdoors. The public health orders not lifted as some of us had anticipated and so add one more thing to the  Covid19 casualty list.

But again, to focus on the positives, we have such outside grandchildren. Always willing to get dressed up and visit. We are also blessed with living near enough that a short outside visit doesn’t seem out of the realm.

This period in Little Man C’s life is such a time of growth and change. In his 2 year life span darn close to 1 entire year has been in a pandemic. His world is so much smaller than his sister’s was at that age. He doesn’t know what he is missing of course but we do. Video chats are hard with a never sit still always climbing chattering little boy. He’s come a long way from the cake smash little guy last year. Even if we haven’t seen him near as much as we wish he knows our love.



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

    1. Thanks Frank. Our province has just yesterday, allowed a 3 household bubble. This as the variant has just arrived. But I will take all those little hugs while I can before the 3rd wave hits. Hope you are doing all right and in line somehow to get a vaccine.


  1. I don’t have kids but it seems that they are pretty resilient. I have a feeling, especially if they are very young, this past year won’t negatively impact them very much. I do realize that is a very broad statement and all kids are different, but it appears that your grandkidlets are doing very well. We are starting to feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I hope you are too.


    1. Canada’s procurement and implementation of the vaccine roll out had been pretty slow (that’s the polite version) so it’s gonna be quite some time before we see a change it. Yes kids are resilient and they adapt better than adults. I think the younger they are the better but it’s also putting a lot of strain on parents. Once spring arrives it will help somewhat as playing outside for longer periods of time will be easier as will outside visits. February and the polar vortex felt long to many of us. Even me who loves winter but when every visit must be outside it becomes hard. Today is decent so we are off to share a cold beer with our son in his backyard. Thanks for stopping by Janis.

  2. How are the Littles holding up through the pandemic? I hope they are all doing well. Tough times to be a parent and Grand parent for sure. Allan


    1. A is 4 and she has said to me she wishes the bad germs would go away and that people would just stay home. Wee man C is now 2 and as I said no concept but he did wake up a couple of weeks ago and say to his momma “go Nan’s house now” and she had to break his heart and mine to say no. Momma, truthfully, is not holding up well right now. She did ok the first lock down last spring but this winter one, especially with the temps we had in February, has been really tough. Thanks for asking.
