01-10-20 Kingsley: Lachie Playdate

Thursday 1st October 2020

This kid has Playdates back to back. Yesterday Isaac at Maroubra. Today Lachie at Snape Park: climbing trees, playground action, monkey bars and having a picnic (cold milk in a Thermos and cheesy sour dough melts in aluminium foil).

Surf school day 4 is cancelled due to dangerous rips at Maroubra thus rendering our day mainly spent at home Kingsley forced to read chapters of his current favourite book ‘Frog and Toad’ and the entire ‘Herds of Words’ (all of 20 sentences all up!) in order to be allowed access to play games on my phone. Kingsley plays, I scrub the bathroom. Kingsley reads, he’s allowed more playtime.

The house is spotless and Kingsley’s brain fried from staring at the screen by the time we all head out to collect Lachie from Snape Park for their Playdate. Highlight of the afternoon: Kingsley literally getting stuck up a tree (nimble climber he ain’t).
