Red Hot Chilli Peppers


So it's a bank holiday here in Ireland, which means this fella is on his holidays from playschool. I don't think you'll hear a "horray" out of either of us. This means I have had to drag him round with me while I run errands. This used to be an adventure, but it's not any more. Now (apparently) it's just the worst thing I could possibly do to him. He yaps so much, I weirdly end up feeling really guilty and buying him a bag of skips or something (the desired effect two fold, to appease and to hush.) It used to work until he learned how to complain with his mouth full.

Anyway, we received a lovely package from one of our new affiliates Wolf and Rita, which spiced up the minus-craic bank holiday. Take a gander, won't you, at Jacks funky shirt. Wolf and Rita are a designer kids brand that specializes in quality shirts. I love their bold designs. He's wearing the Joao / Chilli print shirt with the American Apparel Tri Blend Cardigan. Quite the statement? Don't you think?




Truthfully, Jack was glad to get back home. He kicked back with a pancake and milk for lunch, and then 'helped' me do the dishes. Then we just bummed around for a while, wondering why we have some small holes in the skirting board. We decided that some very tiny slimy monsters lived there. 
If you and your wee 'uns are on your holidays, I hope you're enjoying speculating about your skirting boards and eating pancakes too. So, wait... you're saying that's just us then?

  1. Holidays can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand it is nice to have a break, but on the other you have to fill the time with something else. Love his pepper shirt!

  2. It is an awesome shirt… yes, as they grow, Mom stuff becomes less and less interesting… but slimy monsters, that's pretty fascinating!

  3. First of all, *I* would love to speculate about skirting boards (although I'm not totally sure what those are, to be honest) and eat pancakes on holiday with you . I would even enjoy hunting for tiny slimy monsters.

    And secondly, I love EVERYTHING about these pictures. I love your processing and even more I love that they are such wonderful images of your everyday.

    Thank you so much for linking to Photo Story Friday and Give Me Your Best Shot this week!

  4. Not having kids means I do like the holidays because the traffic is a lot better to get to work. Having said that, I can totally understand how difficult it can be for both parents and kids and a lot of my clients' parents do mention they can't wait for holidays to end! Beautiful photos! :) Popped over from Sundays in my City...

    1. Thanks for your visit, Lucy. No matter about the curls. I bet they'd look every bit as class.

  10. I remember the moment when taking my toddler around started to become more work rather than an adventure. He does look cute, though.
    Have a great week!

  12. That shirt is so cool. We are big spice fans in this house so it would totally work here! Although I think my husband would be a little too jealous of it!!!
