If you haven’t, Kurt and I basically decided to declutter the granny flat on our property, which just became a storage space over the years, into our home office.
Inside one of the rooms, there’s was an old cupboard that didn’t look great at all. Kurt and I were about to break it down and get rid of it. However, thanks to Studio Taryn B who I’ve collaborated with on this project, convinced me to keep it.
Her idea was brilliant – the cupboard is not just my office storage space but also has a pegboard storage solution for my home gym equipment.
I am still in disbelief that I have a grade 2 daughter and grade R son! Where has the time gone?
What’s so lovely about them both being so close in age and in the foundation phase together, is that they are learning so much from each other. Alyssa is now reading beautifully and is able to help her brother learn the basics. Her teacher is encouraging her class to read one non-school book per week which I think is a brilliant idea! Alyssa has taken up the challenge and in fact reading even more and often reads to Aidan.
So naturally, the kids were excited when they were sent a copy of local author Kayla Diamond’s new children’s picture story book, titled The Jellyfish Jiggle.
