Here we are on Bruny Island (the ‘bobsy’ twins with our matching tees) showing Greg and Jackie the sights on Friday – an absolutely glorious day. We had a lovely day, albeit a few meltdowns from James and Poppy!
Poor ‘ol Jackie had to cram into the backseat in between the two car seats and as we were driving off the ferry, James was absolutely screaming due to over-tiredness. This was complemented by Poppy repeatedly asking ‘Are we there yet‘ and having a tantrum about being able to swim and kicking the back of my seat. I could feel my blood boiling as I was driving and all I could think was poor Jackie and Greg – this was their Bruny Island experience!
James finally fell asleep as we drove to Dennes Point and I bribed Poppy with an apple.
On the way back to the ferry in the afternoon we were cutting it fine with the time when Poppy said:
Mummy, I need to do a wee!
I piled her out of the car and as she was squatting she said:
Mummy, I need to do a poo!
I yelled out to Jackie and Greg:
We have a ‘Code Brown’!
This could just be the impetus to missing the ferry. After rushing Poppy to ‘just push harder’ we drove like mad dreading the thought of the hour and a half wait for the next ferry and a repeat of the morning scenario. Thankfully we were the last car on the ferry! Phew, we made it! High fives all round, until Poppy said:
Mummy, I need to do another poo!
I just looked at her and said ‘hold tight’ until we get off the ferry! A relaxing G&T once we were home and then I bundled my poor babies up again and whisked them out to Rektango where we enjoyed a brief set from Mr Coconut before the wheels (almost) fell off again. Xx
