a little walk, a little talk.
While the bigger boys were playing cricket at The Mount yesterday, M5 and Tiahnee and I took off for a little walk around the sunshiney village. We popped into the $2 Shop, and then bought bubbly lemonades. I walked a few steps behind, just admiring their body language and conversation.
M5: I love you, Tiahnee. Do you know, you're my Third Best Friend? When I'm 27, you'll be 28... (kisses her)
T: And when you turn 6, I'll be 7. And when you turn 7, I'll be 8. And when you turn 8, I'll be 9. And when you turn 9, I'll be 10. And when you turn 10, I'll be 11... (takes a breath)
M5: I love you.
T: I don't. I love you *and* Kate. You're my best homeschooling family.
M5: You're bee-yoo-tee-ful, Tiahnee... (glances behind at me) ...and also *you*, Mum.
