Colours. Confetti. Joy. Love. Happiness.
It was another Wiggles BIG show. It was also just another Wiggles show, and I have lost count of the many we have been to over the years, whether BIG or small.
It was a BIG day. And it was filled with BIG love. Because not only did we head into the city to watch the 4-coloured group perform all their best catchy songs, but we did it with family.
There’s nothing quite like making memories, laughing, singing and dancing about with those you love most.
But beyond that… sometimes you may not see someone in a while, and there is still love there.
And beyond the Australian kids entertainment group, our day kept going. We had some family friends come over this evening who we haven’t seen in a long while. Baby girl, though tired and spent and overexcited from her Wiggly day, took almost an hour, maybe more, to come out of hiding and say hello to them.
But once she did, THAT WAS IT.
Kisses. Hugs. Dancing. Love. Much like earlier in the day. But only this time it was with people that we don’t see so often.
And something very simple came up. In amongst talking about this, it was noted – “kids can tell.”
Kids don’t lie.
Whether it is with people they see on a regular basis, or people they haven’t seen in 2 years… they don’t lie. They can’t. They can ONLY tell the truth. You can read it in their behaviour towards them, and how they respond.
How they look at them.
It’s one of those Universal things that just, IS.
And so, on the first day of December, on the first day of Summer, on the first day of what begins the madness of the Christmas and end-of-year catch-up season…
Big things are all around us at this time of year… but hopefully we can respond to it all with happiness and laughter, as long as we are with the right people.
Whether we saw them yesterday or last year.
Blood, or water. As long as there is ♥
