Live Wild and Free



S'up? Another week has flown in. The weather is starting to look better, and the days are getting longer. Horrah! 
Today I wanted to feature this snazzy jumper, kindly sent to us by one of my long time affiliates Oh Baby London. They sent this for Jack ages ago, but he's only just grown into it. I love the grungy decal. I also love the motto. I wish I could live more like this, but I feel I ought to be sensible now and 'Live carefully and Conservatively'. We'd probably all be a bit happier if we lived with this motto in mind though!




Mister Jack also wears a pair of green skinny jeans from Zara kids and black All Star Street Converse supplied to him by the nice people at Milly Mog.
Thanks so much to the gals at Oh Baby London. Check them and their funky kidswear out if you get the chance- you can get 15% off if you use the code 15JACK.


Jack often asks me to make him things. Often it's a postbox (easy enough - a box with a slot) or a rocket ship (not so easy). This week he asked me to make him a Robot costume. He's actually asked me to make him a Robot suit numerous times. But you know yourself, sometimes you don't have the time, supplies or drive to drop everything and start an art project. Well, he asked me at a great time. We were waiting for a friend to pick us up for a coffee and had a spare hour before she arrived. He was so delighted when I agreed (It reminded me of when my sister and I used to pester my Mum to make us princess crowns, and we were always so psyched when she said yes). Wee pet. He jerked about doing his robotic voice, whilst I cut, painted and stuck. Several empty boxes later we had a robot costume. He was irritated that he had to wait for the paint to dry. Finally, when it was all done I asked him "What d'ya think?"   -  *Gasp* "Look at the mess you've made, Mummy!"  "Never you worry, I'll clean that up." I replied. *Pause* "Want robot knees and feet too, Mummy!"  Sigh.  You're welcome, Son.

  9. What a cutie! Love his hair. And you're right. We might all be a little bit happier if we could live that way. But, the responsibility in us all usually wins out, doesn't it? I think the robot costume is great!
