terribly two - Minty runs away in a cute hand knit

OK I'm having some serious disciplinary issues here at the moment. Minty is intent on running away from home. She tried to make a break for it 5 times today. And when I say 'run' I do mean it literally. She sprints off down the road and I can hardly keep up with her. I'm really at my wits end. I can't turn my back for a second or she is off. She slipped out the front door while I was taking out the rubbish, dashed away from me while I was loading our library books into the car and ran away twice on the way home from the park. She even made a dash for it while I was taking these photos. One minute I was snapping away taking pictures of her in the front yard when suddenly she picked up the pace and was off sprinting down the street with no shoes on. She made it the full length of our street before I finally caught hold of her.

At least she was looking seriously cute while she was running. This is a cardigan my mum made for her. Such a sweet shade of pistachio - she looks like a tiny grown up if that makes any sense at all. The pattern is the Sublime sugar plum cardi and is knitted in sublime baby cotton kapok dk.


  1. Tiny grown up indeed! Love the photos. Perhaps she's channelling Forrest Gump?

  2. P.S. I barely knew pistachio was a colour. Now you tell me there are SHADES of pistachio?!
