Glorious Spring day to wander about Sydney Park sans pram but avec puppies. The puppies are sweet and enjoy strolling side by side with the twins, Jennifer Henry & I talk non stop, up and down hills into bird sanctuaries and Lilly ponds the twins almost follow now muddy dogs.
On our return we have a mutiny: neither dog nor child will take a step further. Tears and thrown bodies to the ground! Babies can’t walk any further, not a metre more. So I run. I run back to the Cafe fetch the pram and run back only to find a picnic: Jen’s two dogs lounging, the babies drinking their milk, drop feeding the dogs drop of milk everyone calm and sopping wet in the nappies. And no one has napped yet.
So a bit more of a picnic, some nudie time, dressing protestations but nothing that fresh milk in bottles won’t fix. Into the prams then good night Elektra. She’s the easy sleeper. Keanu is next.
