Meditation and children being silent are not a symbiotic relationship! The energy transmitted off one far outweighs that of the other so...
I took the kids to the beach where there was a display of sandcastles.
And not your ordinary sandcastles... we're talkin about a full on Jurassic experience... but it cost $30 for the three of us and I only had $20 in my wallet.
Yes attempts were made to pass the kids off as being under four years old, but alas, no joy.
So we went for a walk along the beach and out on the pier.
After peering over the side of the jetty and seeing no fish about my son turned to me and said:
"hey dad, you know that saying 'there are plenty of other fish in the sea'?... curse that saying!"
I can see video ideas coming from my boy in the future! He can finally pay his way :P
