Each year, as part celebrating our children’s birthdays, I spend about a week decorating their birthday cakes. While I’m in our kitchen modelling and colouring gum paste, my mind reflects on how our children have grown and changed. Their personalities have become more defined. Each has their own interests and quirks. Here’s my favourite Instagram of the Week capturing one of the characters I made whilst thinking about such things.

With my thoughts on my boys and their budding personalities, here are some great posts from last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op.
