Leila likes to stand on her head. But not just any old time. Leila likes to stand on her head when the ABC song comes on the telly. Here is Leila and Daddy in the living room, the latter of whom is trying to understand the workings of a very tiny brain. I wonder what he discovers? Some kind of subliminal message delivered by the ABC people to all the folk around the world who stand on their heads when that specific song comes on?
Or maybe Dad discovers the newest, trendiest craze around. Invented by his very own trend-setting daughter.
I rate it over twerking, that's for sure.
Festival Time is Sometimes Nap Time
The Taste of Tasmania. A lovely festival for the whole family. Except, when you exist at knee-height, there are all those people SHOVING and STEPPING on you... And ALL that walking around in the SAME places... then you get sleepy after eating battered somethings... and there is OH SO MUCH adult talk...
Dylan's parents obviously have a firm understanding of The Taste of Tasmania from their son's point of view. This is why they kindly obtained a cardboard carton from a stallholder, carried him around a bit, and stuck him (erm - I mean to say they gently placed him) under the table so he could sleep soundly while they continued adult talk.
This family really did make it a festival suitable for the WHOLE family!
The Story of Rye:
One day Rye goes to work with Dad. Dad works for Australian Post, dealing with equipment and mail in the sorting room. It is all very technical, what with the clunking and clonking and rustling of important letters. Of course, all the grownup types fuss over little Rye so that he feels he is a good little helper.
The next day Dad is taking Rye home to his mum. Rye looks at Dad, confused.
“Where are we going?” he asks.
“We’re going home.”
“Shouldn’t we be going to work? They might need me there.”
Rye went home to mum. Australian Post was never the same again.
The Story of Angus:
One day Angus goes into the toilet fully clothed. He comes out fully naked.
Dad looks at him. “Why have you taken your clothes off, son?”
Angus looks up at Dad with big eyes. “After what I’ve been through in there, I thought I’d need a good airing.”
The Story of Angus – part 2:
Angus comes down the stairs one night without his shorts on.
Dad asks why he is once again not properly covered in the clothes department. Angus replies that his shorts are ripped.
“How did you rip them?” asks Dad.
“I don’t know. I think it might have been my massive penis.”
Angus remains well aired to this day.
