Grateful For A Wednesday

Since the start of Term One I've been doing Bootcamp on a Wednesday afternoon. I love this time, it's not something I ever thought I'd fit into my schedule, but somehow it works, around dancing lessons, day care pick ups and Muddy Bubby it all fits in.

It's all thanks to Muddy Hubby, each Wednesday afternoon he takes Muddy Bubby with him to work, on the tractor, in the ute, up the paddock, whatever he's doing he takes his little man with him. It's turned into a lovely part of our family routine. Some quality time for both of them. Muddy Bubby gets his little legs kicking when he sees Muddy Hubby coming and his face lights up with excitement. For us it's been a win win situation. I get some precious time to focus on me, and the men in my life get their time together, to get to know each other and for Muddy Hubby to start passing on all his farming love and knowledge.

Even last week when Muddy Hubby was flat out trying to get sowing and spraying done, he strapped the car seat into the tractor and away they went. I am so grateful for this time and for the great bond my husband is building with his son and am linking up with Maxabella at Village Voices for 52 Weeks of Grateful.

We're all exhausted by the end of Wednesday, asleep in his highchair.


  1. So important to have me time. Lovely pic of Muddy Bubby - I always wanted one that would fall asleep in its high chair! Cute. x

  2. That is adorable!
    And such a great time - for all of you.
    :-) x

  3. What a cute little bubby!

    You just commented on my blog about my Tupperware jug. If you want one they often come up on eBay. I got one for my Mum from their not that long ago.

    Take care.

  4. That's fantastic!! From a fellow mum of 3 girls then a boy at the end, that time spend with Papa is so important, for both of them. Don't know about your husband but mine is so involved (when he's not soldiering) plaiting hair & ironing party dresses . . . but the boy, it's all the cool cliches like fishing, camping, gaming & being together. So outnumbered by we girls!!
    As for the chickens we are babysitting, the farmer who gave me all of them, had the others marked for other families, so far the white one has already been delivered into a coop in the city (i felt like some kind of animal activist) popping her in the new garden. I've tossed in the shell grit too, with the feed, i might try the light idea other bloggers have suggested for egg laying help, thanks so much for the advice, love Posie

  5. Awwww, just love him! Such a gorgeous shot of the little man.
    That is awesome you're doing your boot camp still Nat. Muddy hubby is a good man, he's always been great at getting the kids involved with the farm work. It seriously takes patience too, which not all dad's (or Mum's for that matter) have xoxo

  6. Go you! I have always thought about doing boot camp but it scares me! I'm sure I'd be one of those who throws up in the corner from sheer exhaustion LOL I really need to use my gym membership though, it's getting very dusty.
    How lucky you are to have such a helpful husband, and how luck your Muddy Bubby is to have a wondeful Daddy to spend quality time with.

  7. Boot camp! Go you!!

    I bet they are loving the time together as much as you are loving the time to yourself. Sometimes it just takes changing the way we do things to realise there is a better way.

    Have fun! x
