Bizaare But Cute Nonetheless!

Check out the photo! Too cute!


5yo, 6yo try to Elope to Africa

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/01/06/2459668.htm

Two German children aged five and six have been stopped by police from travelling to Africa to elope.

The children packed bathing costumes, sunglasses and a lilo, and headed for the airport.

They even invited along a witness, the girl's seven-year-old sister.

The three got as far as Hanover railway station before police intervened, telling them they would not get far without tickets and money.

A police spokesman says the young couple are very much in love and had decided to get married in Africa because it was warm.

I almost gave a 12 year old relative directions on traveling to the regional shopping mall via public transit.  These young kids in the article had to know how to surf the Internet; When I was their age, I'd rather play with my little red truck.   ;D

Tonka No. 2 ready, beep beep, come in Tonka No. 1.

I had the best red, steel, Tonka truck; I used it to dig up the garden (during winter time, of course).   ;D

This was a cute article, but being a mom I'm wondering where the heck the parents were that their wee ones could slip away to the train station unnoticed. 

Then again, Cait will probably test my observation skills one day and I'll wonder no more.

There is a wonderful humorous story by Anton Chekhov, titled "Boys" (the Russian original here, http://az.lib.ru/c/chehow_a_p/text_0060.shtml#63). It's about something very similar except both "conspirators" were little boys and their destination was not Africa but California. :)

When my I was about 18 months old, my Mother put me in my cot one day for my nap. A little while later, she heard some banging and thought the noise was my Father hammering in the shed, and she went out to ask him to stop because I was sleeping. My parents then found me playing with a lizard in the backyard. On examination of the crime scene (the nursery) they worked out that I had stood up in my cot, held on to the cot-sides and jumped the cot over to the window and climbed out.

Before Power Rangers, there was Voltron, Defender of the Universe.

Genius!  I will check to make sure the windows are bolted!  LOL

Incidentally, the way we know Cait is doing something she probably shouldn't is when she disappears from sight and gets very quiet.  Last time she did that, she wandered into the laundry room and taste-tested the cats' kibbles.
