My baby is seven and I pray he makes it to 27!

My baby is seven and I pray he makes it to 27!

Last Monday Ru turned seven and we were able to celebrate much more than last year, but not to the full extend he wanted. Ru wanted a class party, but as we are still in a pandemic, he had to settle for a BBQ with close family on the Saturday. We decorated the house on the Monday and had a trip to McDonald’s as a birthday treat, later that day.  I take immense gratitude in the thought that Ru is healthy and has safely navigated another…

Quarantine Update!

So how is everyone coping with the lockdown? Part of me cannot believe that we are in week 6 (for those who did not have to isolate prior), time feels like it has just flown by!

It is unfortunate…
