Lounge reversed again, facing big window onto the front yard. Mummy and Jai sitting in it, watching as stormy weather hits the house. It hailed for a moment, then the rain started, then the trees wobbled in the strong winds.
Jai: “This is like TV!”
Sarah and I laugh!
Jai gabbled incessantly for about 10 minutes about what he saw out the window. Finally he stopped.
Mummy: “If you stopped talking, you’d fall asleep wouldn’t you?” (Old joke that normally says ‘die’, not ‘fall asleep’.)
Jai: “Oh yes, I like sleeping!”
Daddy: “Not half as much as you like talking.”
Sarah and I laugh again! We had a little chat about honey deliveries this afternoon and our new house on Kangaroo Island until finally….
Jai: “Mummy, please be quiet, you are making too much noise, let’s just watch the storm!”
We laughed again. He shooshed us again. But didn’t stop talking himself.
