I'm a bigger boy now dad!


From Journal 2 – 22/08/1988

I had to go up on the roof of the extension today while Luke was at kinder and Glen asked if he could come up too. I said “When you’re a bigger boy you can come up.”

Ten minutes later I was on the roof and heard a voice calling out to me. I looked around and there was Glen on the top rung of the ladder saying “I’m a bigger boy now Dad.”

I'm so impressed that you have a journal that goes back that far! What an incredible resource/memento of family life. Well done!

Cuteness!

I love that this was written a while ago so I can pop into the future and meet the real 'bigger boy'. x

Loz said...

Hi Liapf and Maxabella - thanks for dropping by. I am lucky to have this stuff because if it's not written down it's very easy to forget.

Good to see that boys haven't changed in the last 20 years. Still not listening to their Dads and doing stuff that is so cute it makes it hard to be cross!

You're so right, these things are easily forgotton. There are so many things I think at the time will be with me forever - but unless you record them, so often they are lost from our minds...Great cheeky grin too!! xxx
