The Morning Routine

3 Sep

Every morning of every day, we follow the same morning ritual. Luka and I usually come down first in the morning and get the coffee going. Olaf joins us a little later and we all spend the early morning waking up, having our coffee and often breakfast on the patio outside. We like to use the opportunity to spend some time outdoors before the heat forces us inside until the late afternoon. Luka’s favourite activity of all time is to kick a ball, he can spend hours doing it and his timing is remarkable for an almost-2-year-old. If after an hour of kicking, his parents actually have to do other stuff, he will usually show his disapproval by having a tantrum but will swiftly move on to his second favourite activity; riding his bike. Here is my first attempt at posting my own video on this here blog. If you are not a grandparent or family member vaguely interested in Luka, this 30 second home video will probably bore you to death. If you are a family member or really good friend, you may just be able to sit through it long enough to see how big this kid has gotten since you last saw him in the flesh. I love how he jumps of his bike at the end, looks at the camera and says his name, just incase those watching were unsure of who he was. He obviously realises that we have been away THAT LONG!

    He takes off so fast, I was half expecting him to hit the fence! (I’m so jealous of the bike – and his young age. I had a bike just like that but yellow, and I kind of miss the days when it was completely acceptable to get exhausted by playing.)

      We also all had bikes like his when we were little but ours were black and our parents bought them for us from the gas station(that was the only place that they were sold back then). In our family they were called vroom, vroom’s. I put it on Luka’s wishlist for his first birthday as I knew how a vroom, vroom would bring him many years of happy riding. We brought it back all the way from South Africa and all the kids in the park love it.

      Jana, it is still perfectly acceptable to get exhausted playing. I love The girl who writes it asks the following 2 questions this week:
      1. What sorts of things brought me life and happiness as a child?
      2. Am I still making time to do those things today?

      Just do it. It will completely refresh your soul.

      Hey Bianca

      The old cliche that they grow up too fast is very true. Sometimes I wish I could shrink him just to remember what he was like as a baby, you forget even though you never think that you will.

      Thanks for stopping by
