Visiting me here Maxabellaland today are some of the lovely bloggers from Mama’s Little Nestwork.
There are places in bloggerspace that just make me feel welcome and safe and nurtured. Mama’s Little Nestwork is one such place. I stumbled onto Mama Hen’s blog early in my blogging days and I really enjoyed the simplicity of the joy she had for her daughter, Little Chick. She’s a warm, caring mother and that extends to a warm, caring blog and now a warm, caring network of mum bloggers. Mums without an agenda. Just writing about their families and, really, far nicer than me (sshhhhh, don’t tell them!). Aspirational if you like!
I hope my fellow Nesties will enjoy having a play in Maxabellaland. Don’t read the posts where I use the f-word or Mama Hen might kick me out!
At my place this weekend we baptised The Badoo. We thought we might try and ‘get the divil out of her’ (as my great-grandmother would say). Anything to help.
It seemed to work straightaway as she was good as gold throughout the mass and didn’t even mind having the ‘guy throw the water on my head’. Yes, I’m sure ‘the guy’ was very gentle, Badoo.
Here she is, the proud, newly holy little sister in the middle. I’m not sure how that lizard managed to become part of the festivities…
Afterwards we had a little luncheon to celebrate (complete with decadent cake). The Badoo insisted on blowing out the ‘birthday candle’ so out went the Christening candle and we sang that well known religious song “Happy Christening to you”.
She was already a little cheeky and now she’s my little cheeky angel. Here she is with her darling Dadda.
