When I was little my dad used to design Formula One racing cars and we have a video of me aged 2 saying that I wanted to be a racing car driver when I was grown-up.
Luckily I never decided to follow this ambition, not that I would have got very far given that I can’t even park but the lovely thing about it was that I wanted to be like my dad because I obviously thought he was amazing.
Lately Iyla has been saying exactly the same things to me about wanting to be a car driver like Daddy and yesterday she told Dad2BabyInsomniac that she wanted a welder (albeit a pink one) so she could be like him.
Watching the two of them together and seeing what a special relationship they have makes me feel so unbelievably happy and today I managed to get a little film of her talking about her pink welder and how Daddy was a ‘fixer’ – she thinks he can fix ANYTHING!
I could spend ages writing about how lovely it is, especially in my hormonal state, but I will stop now and just let you watch the video.
Oh one more thing before I do, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for me in the MAD blog awards. I have been chosen as one of the five finalists in the pregnancy category, out of over 150 other pregnancy blogs. I can’t tell you how much this means to me and I had to actually check the list a fair few times to make sure it was really me on it! I’m not just saying it but I don’t even mind whether I win or not, I am just happy to have made it to this stage and am looking forward to joining lots of other bloggers for the awards night in September!
