It is nearly time...

So, I have been summoned by my brother and sister-in-law to head down to Melbourne and look after my darling nieces, while they head overseas for a much needed holiday! Tara is 6 and Sienna is nearly 3 - both gorgeous, delightful, loveable girls. But unlike other visits, which involved their parents - I am the one (and only well with the help of my mum and dad as well,when they are not at work-thank god!)to look after them. Yep, little old me - a 33 year old (non-mother)! But never fear...I think I have great potential as a mother...and I hope Tara and Sienna think I am a cool Auntie...should really ask them I guess. Now, my challenge: for 10 days I have to feed, clothe, bath, entertain, take Tara to school, play with Sienna all day, take them to ballet,, the list is VERY long. But I have my head held high and will give it my best shot. I mean it can't be that hard...can it? Well stay tunned because I will be writing all about our escapades over the coming week. Wish me luck!


  1. Fantastic for you doing this, Michele.
    What would be an even more wonderful experience for you and your nieces is for you to stay at home and have a few coffees and let your terrific boyfriend look after and fed Tara and Sienna.

    And I'm sure he's one of those sensitive guys who'd think that a very cool opportunity to get even closer to you through his thoughtful helping.

    What do you think?

  2. You will be fantastic Michele - although I'm sure you will find it all pretty tiring!!! Two little girls are a handful. Voice of experience speaking. Enjoy every moment, as I'm sure the girls will, and look forward to updates! xx
