His Father's Son

You know the nursery rhyme that says 'when he was good he was very, very good and when he was bad he was rotten'....I'm sure it was written about Kobe.  He can be the cutest, sweetest little boy; and then there are the days when you think you could kill him :)   Lately he has been a lot of fun.  He has been making us laugh so much lately.  A couple of weeks ago we were playing hide and seek and this is where I found him! In Milly's crate!  He knew it was hilarious so he pulled a funny face when I opened up the door :)

When Alison took pics for us he pulled out some hilarious poses!  We couldn't stop laughing.  I have no idea where he got them from, but he's definitely his father's son.  He loves an audience and loves to make people laugh and it doesn't take much to encourage him. 

Yesterday I got a call to see if I could do some relief teaching.  Luckily Alison didn't have to work and was keen to hang out with Kobe all day (thanks Alison!).  While on my lunch break I checked my phone and she had sent me a few photos of what they were up to. This photo made me laugh, and miss him so much! 

He is obsessed with both versions of the movie 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.  He found Harri's book on the shelf and asked me if I could read the book to him.   I told him there weren't many pictures, but he said he didn't care because he liked the story.  I'm surprised as to how much he is into it and is begging me to read another chapter every day.  After reading our first chapter he said 'can we have some chocolate now since we just read a book about it!'.  Cheeky thing!
He makes things so much easier  by just being here.  I have no doubt he was meant to come when he did, because it's been a huge blessing to have him home with me over the last two years.   It's nice to be able to laugh at his antics and tell him that he is just like his Daddy.  He is so proud of that. 


  1. A beautiful boy!! A true blessing.

  2. It's nice when you realise Heavenly Father has blessed your life, whether it's people you meet, (or in your case children you are blessed with), opportunities that come our way etc isn't it!

  3. I call that a "Godsend". Blessings to you and the boys.

    PS: More pics of Millie, please.

  4. This post brings tears to my eyes. I know it's a happy post but I feel the hurt in it too. I'm soooo glad he's there and I think you're right, he came at that time for a purpose--they always do. I love this post. It's a very happy funny post but my heart hurts for you too. I think of your family often. May you feel some comfort and peace today!

  5. Haha I SO love the faces he pulls. Definitely more than one cheeky monkey in your family. xoxo
