Hi, this is Cade here. How come everyone else gets to write a blog entry? Uncle Brown, Aunty Helen, Mummy, Daddy... even Mum’s Mum was offered a blog spot. Does everyone just assume that because I’m only two and a half years old, I don’t want to write a blog too?
Huh, well us younger generation are more tech savvy than you think, and I’ve snuck on line to write this.
Mummy and Daddy brought a pile of stuff for Uncle Brown, some rope and pullies for a lifting tackle, NZ magazines, and some of Uncle Brown’s favourite foods from NZ. The normally blame me for having to carry loads of stuff on holidays.
All my mates at play group are really jealous that I get to have such cool holidays. Mummy and Daddy had already planned a long trip to Eurup at the end of this year, so this short holiday to the sunny paradise of the Maldives was a bit of a bonus.
The other kids in my swimming lessons are going to so jealous of my tan, and now I can do laps of the pool wearing my ‘zorg’ float thingie, and even climb up the side of the pool and jump back in. I was also very cute when I yelled “there she is!!” at the top of my voice when I saw my favourite bikini babe by the pool. Daddy says that I’ve got to learn to be more subtle. He also says that an interest in women older than me is something that I picked up from Uncle Brown..
Uncle Brown taught me a few tricks, like using the juice machine at breakfast. I didn’t break too many glasses, and I gave our grumpy sweaty waiter something to do between watching the lobby TV, and occasionally serving us, by mopping the juice off the floor.
There have been lots of cool animals here. Uncle Brown tried to tell me that the lizards are dinosaurs. Doh! I know better than that! I liked chasing them around- they can run really fast. When they climb trees, they scuttle around to the opposite side, to hide from you. I liked this game of peek-a-boo. Chasing crabs was fun though. Uncle Brown said I was lucky for not catching any.
Uncle Brown’s friends Rob and Kate have a cool boat. It’s really big, with lots of little rooms and nooks. I played with Rob and Kates three boys and put pringle crumbs in as many places on their boat as possible. I even got some in my mouth. Kate said a week later that she was still finding crumbs.
We always stop off in Singapore on the way home from our trips. Mummy and Daddy eat themselves silly on all the yummy food.
I may have to get a bigger passport if mummy and daddy keep taking me on so many holidays...
