watch this seven times
laugh till your sides ache and tears run down your cheeks
go somewhere empty, like a park, or lakeside, or the lounge room
make up your own
repeat step two
have quick discussion about where and when its ok to do step four, and brainstorm where its NOT ok eg
when renting an apartment,
when trying not to get kicked out of said apartment
when going thru immigration
when in even slightly posh restaurant,
on really crowded footpaths, ergo all Thai footpaths
repeat step four ’til bedtime.
By the way, if you think it’s insensitive of us to do all this, when we have a child who can’t walk, let me say this. Firstly, thanks for even having the thought, when anyone stops to think of Sparky’s needs and interests, we are really appreciative. Secondly, don’t worry. She has a wicked sense of humour, if there’s one thing that cracks her up more than Grandma dropping things or Dad losing things or Mum saying yet another bad word, its her own efforts to walk. She laughs so hard, if she wasn’t already being held up, she would keel right over.
We had a fun day. What did you get up to?
