spontaneous surprise

Every time one of the children turns eight years old, Grandpa and Gran buy them a Very Special Present. By the time L7 turns into L8, we’ll be in Malaysia, and so on their way through Auckland last weekend, they gave a totally surprised L7 his equally unexpected present (more Lego that he hadn’t dared with for!) What’s more, late Saturday afternoon, I decided we’d do him the cake he had been hoping for, but understanding he’d not be getting. He had been a wee bit down in the mouth at the prospect  of no cake this year, and so it was an extra bonus. Add to that, a treasure hunt made by bigger siblings, and this boy’s joy was complete.
