I took the kids to the Redcliffe Show today. Well, I took Chance and Quinn. Good grief what an exercise in negotiation and teaching gratitude. Except that apparently gratitude can’t be taught. You just have to lead by example.
Three years ago, Frith’s Dad and I took Chance and Quinn and baby Darby to the Rocky show.
This is how that day ended. And it was pretty much the same today.
That’s why we did Family Lego Day the following year on show day. It was cheaper and heaps better.
Anyway, we are focusing on the positives!! I took Chance on the dodgems as requested! And this time I didn’t put my back out!
And Quinny and I hit up the Tea Cup ride! And this time I didn’t get sick!
The kids won crappy prizes in sideshow alley that disappointed them!
They drank red cordial slushies!!!
Just like three years ago!!
And Grumpy took them to look at the gemstones which was totally cute
Look. It was great. There were meltdowns and disappointments but the kids overall had a marvelous time and they are already talking about next year’s show. And so am I! I want to enter a few things into the show next year. If I remember… 🙂
