Originally for Master 3, but now they are for everyone.
“The world needs to change. Everybody needs to pick up rubbish. Wait… NOBODY SHOULD DUMP RUBBISH!”
That’s my boy.
I don’t usually post photos here. But Jai drew his concept of a forest this morning – and I was immediately hit with an idea for a conservationist advertisement:
“When the current generation thinks this is a forest, we must be doing something wrong.
Help stop excessive delogging. Help replant trees around the world.
Ensure your kids have fresh air and somewhere to live.”
Our kids will never know the pain we had as kids.
When I was a kid our first TV was a Phillips 16″ B&W little orange unit. The knob fell out so we had a torque spanner attached. Us three boys were Dad’s remote channel changer. We enjoyed all 4 channels, yet watched a lot of ABC.
Jai (almost 5yo) and Aidan (now 2yo) know how to turn on Mummy’s Samsung tablet, select the iView icon and watch anything they like on ABC4Kids.
At 8am Jai knows to turn down the volume so we don’t know.
I’d normally take it away, but for a change he’s responsibly making sure his little brother can watch with him. Cute. Naughty yet cute.
Today Jai found this half filled lolly bag. I made the mistake of leaving it in plain view at my office desk.
I found him with the contents in lines on top of his little dining table. I decided if he was daring, he could have them.
“Dude, they are pure sugar. Don’t eat them too fast.”
“Daddy …. adults shouldn’t eat these.” Oh, he’s had one already.
“Why not dude?”
“… because they are pure sugar.”
Yet he didn’t jump off the walls nor get hyperactive. Because we took him to a park to run around for thirty minutes! Whew.
