Those dreaded words came out of Georgie’s mouth. And I felt gutted. Thoughts of what I was doing wrong as a parent whizzed through my mind. Have you ever felt this way? That night I went into a research frenzy, trying to find a reason to justify my child’s feelings. And I came across something really interesting.
A couple of months ago I saw a video featuring these awesome water balloons that fill up and tie themselves. It was one of those things that I wish I could get my hands on but knew I probably couldn’t. Then last week while I was walking through Jumbo I saw them and went berserk!
Honestly I can’t remember the last time I dyed eggs for Easter. I think at some point it just became an incredibly mundane tradition- dip them in some red dye and that’s it. There was some spicing up later on when the colour green was introduced. Ha!
I promised myself I would get involved with decorating eggs this year with Georgie. But we’re doing it our way! So I gathered some kid-friendly cute and modern egg decorating ideas to try out.
We were having dinner at a little restaurant in Vienna when I noticed Georgie and his tablet seemed to be getting a lot of attention from the people around us. It didn’t occur to me at the time but later on I realised that tablets/iPads/tech gadgets weren’t popular among kids at restaurants or coffee shops. Actually I don’t think I saw a single child carrying or playing on one the whole time we were there.
This made me laugh. It also amazed me and that’s why I’m sharing it on the blog.
On Saturday morning Georgie got creative with two leeks he found on the kitchen counter. Ninja-fighting or kung fu fighting or whatever you want to call it, he played with those leeks for most of the day. This is a great example of how inventive and imaginative kids can be.
