Firstly, I’m ridiculously boring. I’m not good at having or making fun with kids. When I picked the boys up we were stuck in traffic for a good two hours. The entire time. I tried to think of ways to make the trip less dreadful. All I came up with was getting them to sing the songs they learn at kohanga. This took up about 8 minutes. Pathetic.
Luckily I checked the weather and there was going to be sunshine for about 3 hours. So we packed up the boys and headed out the Mission Bay around lunch time. And the kites were out! We had soup and fried bread and looked around at the kites. The boys enjoyed it.
Then we went to Parakai Springs and the boys loved that too!! They had so much fun swimming around and I’m so glad those pools are hot because the weather was freezing!
Our sleeps for the last two nights have been uncomfortable and short lived. This morning we all woke up late. It can take me an hour and a half (on average) to get myself ready for church. Long story short, we were 15 minutes late to church and already restless by the time we arrived. I’m not cut out for this.
One last thing, I’m really into the whole Leviisms and Vinnisms but I don’t get that much time with them to record much. But when we were stuck in traffic when I picked them up, it was the funniest thing. They’ve never really been stuck in traffic like that before because they live in Hamilton. And Hamilton’s traffic is NOTHING compared to Auckland’s. They don’t really grasp the concept of traffic, so when they noticed that we weren’t moving Levi said “go faster … are we nearly there?” When I said I couldn’t move because there were too many cars Vinnie simply said “just move the car.” Haha. They are so tiny and so naive – I just love them to pieces!!
