This week we have been hosting two of our best friends, Scott and Anthony, here at Rancho Relaxo. Leading up to their stay I began fretting over how to entertain them and show the boys around our city without disrupting too much Kingsley’s (already loose) routine. I became increasingly nervous over how we could stay out all day and late into the night with the boys while pushing a toddler in his pram no matter how much I really wanted to party and eat past midnight. The limiting factor would always be a tired, irritable little boy and I did not wish to inflict that pain on him or our friends who traveled so far just to see us.
Well Kingsley has been very accommodating of their wishes to see this desert city, his favourite day being when we all commuted via metro to The Marina and The Beach at JBR. No tears, just endless energy. Being tired is par for the course of being a toddler, but this one just does not stop. So hours swimming in the Arabian Gulf was the perfect tonic to his wild spirit. After our ride back home, Kingsley ate baked salmon and a slice of buttery toast, before passing out for the next 12 hours.
And when he woke the next day, at the very civilized hour of 9:30am, we did it all again!
