This day we went to Luna Park, and while the big kids went off to the fast and scary rides, we looked for my favourites. The merry-go-round, the ferris wheel, and the bumper cars. We started with the ferris wheel, and with excitement we waited in the line and looked up.
You are the youngest of 5, and sometimes I forget that you have yet to experience some things. So while I thought you would love it, you were a little scared. You held on to the bars so tight.
Then I paused, and realised this was your first time on the ferris wheel. It was your older siblings that I remember taking on this ride. So, I tried to distract you with the view of the setting sun, the sparkling lights and the icons of Sydney.
Your sister had no such concerns, but your grip got tighter and tighter. I thought tears were inevitable.
And then from nowhere, you through back your head and all the fear left you. By the end of the ride, you said it was the “best fun ever”. Yes! I will cherish this day.
Now take a peek at the cherish this day blog.
