Father’s Day in suburbia

On the way out to the Glen this morning Amelia asked us from the back seat “what can I get for 1 dollar, 20 cents and a googley eye?”. Well, she got a packet of honey coated popcorn and loads of yuks with her olds. Happy Father’s Day phil. You’re the best. We love you and your weird eye.

    I almost had a heart attack for not remembering it was Father’s Day, but then I realized it’s different over there than in the U.S. I already covered that phone call this year. 🙂

    Is your Glen the same Glen as my Glen, Claire? Seems like a bit of a trip out for you? I wish they had a JB Hi Fi so i didn’t have to traverse my way to Knox…

    Love the googly eye, didn’t know you could use them as currency in the larger shopping centres!My kid came home from childcare on Friday, as did my nephew, with a painting For Dad. My nephew’s mother and I should probably have explained ahead of time that our respective partners were away and it would be helpful if they didn’t talk about taking stuff home to give to Dad. There were tears in both houses. My partner came home by lunchtime on Father’s Day to receive his painting (after toddler enquiries all Saturday about when Dad would be home so he could hand over the painting). The nephew will be showing his painting to Dad in Beijing via webcam for another three weeks.

    Phil looks like he should be wearing a big beard, jumping up and down and shouting ‘woo hoo’ after finding a huge gold nugget somewhere in the Yukon.

    Hi Loobylu! I love googley eyes, but I have never thought of them as legitimate currency! I love how kids use their imagination. If we all used googley eyes instead of money, I think we might be heaps happier! Or amused, at least!Keep up the great writing!Love Carlawww.carladarling.blogspot.com
