Memorable moments # 8

Seedless watermelon’s were not available at Coles so we purchased watermelon with seeds.  The kids were amazed as they hadn’t seen it before.  ‘What’s that…wwoaaaaah’ (with beady eyes) was the response. 

More memorable moments over the fold.

Memorable moments #7

Nathanael and Aaliyah have this habit of asking their parents if they can have something.  If we’re walking in the shop or see something they want they ask ‘dad, can I have this…later?’.  Knowing that they will get a ‘no’ response they emphasise the ‘later’ part – ‘I said llaaaatteer’.  ‘Of course’ is my reply.  On occasions a walk through the shop will end with several items that they have decided to get later (which means indefinitely). 

Nathanael accidently hit his head walking against a glass wall (thinking it was a door) at the video shop.  I knelt down to his level and tried to comfort him as a bruise emerged.  Aaliyah was watching on.  When we finally walked through the door she was first and said to us ‘see, I didn’t hit my head’ as if we should be impressed.

Aaliyah to dad, ‘look…I saw a star’.  Dad replies ‘yeah Aali, do you know where stars come from?’.  ‘Yes…aahh…stars…stars…planes can fly high and wind down their window and get the stars’.  ‘Trrueee’, dad says.  ‘Yeah’ (with a really excited voice).

Going for a swim at the town pool, chest-high in water, I lift the kids high in the air so they come down by themselves and splash.  I asked Aaliyah if she wants me to do that, she responds ‘NNNOOOO, I don’t want to be superhero to the rescue’.
