Well here I am in Lyttelton, attending a piano recital by all of the children who go to our piano teacher. Four of my boys are playing piano, so I’m supposed to be inside. However, I’m actually outside, enjoying a drench in the late afternoon sun. Why? Three little children – Susanna (5), Jon (3) and Lily (almost 2) who can’t bear to be cooped up inside when there’s green grassy hills to frolic on.
By the looks of the other 3 fathers standing outside with their little ones, I’d conclude this is not a unique challenge!
