The story of lovetomtom
(and his lovesick aunt)
With the pending arrival of tomtom himself, I thought now would be a good time to introduce you.
Some of you may already know, so I will keep this brief and not to give away all his secrets (everyone deserves a bit of mystery) but tomtom is my wonderful nephew. TaDa! (insert jazz hands). Anyone who has a niece or nephew no doubt thinks he/she is the cutest, the smartest, the kindest and I am unapologetically no different! tomtom is very special to our family and as his Zia (aunt) I am completely crazy in love with him.
It’s no surprise then that his visit (along with my fabulous sister and brother in-law) is the event of the year! As part of their visit I will need to design a temporary bedroom, play area, activities and meals for the little man and I can’t wait.
My aim is to create a fun, calm space for him to feel relaxed and comfortable. He is coming a very long way and being on a plane for 24 hours is bad enough for most of us let alone a 2 year old. Don’t worry, I will have plenty of goodies for the grown ups too!
I’m not one for gender colours or gender themes for that matter so over the next few weeks my eyes will be peeled for all sorts of inspiration. I’m going to have to be creative in how I use materials and think outside the box, as after all, they will be going home again (the tissues are on standby).
My sewing machine and paint brushes, as well as my never ending supply of hugs and kisses are ready to go. I’ll keep you posted on what I will be working on and if you have any suggestions please send them my way.
Let the countdown begin! (even though I have been counting down for months but you get my drift).
9 weeks and counting!

Thanks Leah! Easy to write seeing as he is the most adorable kid! xo
Can image the countdaown for the arrival of Tomtom, mum and dad is truly on its way. Many things come to mind for his entertainment but on the top of the list
for sure is what Tomtom calls ‘a digger’ anything that involves heavy machinery eg
a toy digger, tractor etc even more so if it is the real thing in action. Mr B may have to convert a corner of you back yard into a sandpit, throw in a Tonka digger
and he will be happy. Need less to say having Zia’s full attention will be the order of the day.
I was going to do the garden before they arrive but I might just leave it for Tomtom to have a go at 🙂
Have I mentioned I’m excited!!
Awwww, I did wonder 🙂 That’s SO exiting! Best Aunt Ever 🙂
Thanks Belle! It is so exciting and I have the potential to get more annoying as their arrival gets closer. xo
Oh what fun when TomTom arrives….. he will be spoilt of course and I do hope you have a Easter Egg for him 🙂
* hide it so you won’t eat it before he touch’s down!
I can’t guarantee that I can keep chocolate in the house without eating it! It will be so much fun to have them all here xo
