My children, the moon and me
I was with my daughter and her cousin on a mountain this day. We teach our children from an early age to walk in the mountains. On the way back to the valley we came to a hill that was covered with fresh snow. A children’s paradise he he he :-) Well, and as children tend to be, I suddenly only heard „Hooray, let’s run down there“! And like two small racing cars, they both ran down that slope! „Noooo, stop, stop!“ I cried. I threw away the snow shoes and ran after the kids to stop them!!!! And after 100 Meters everybody stopped. Well, we were in the deep snow. And then I noticed the mess. The children have only a weight of about 20-25 kg. Therefore they were only about 20-30 cm in the snow. But for me it was completely another story ha ha ha! My weight is higher and I also had a backpack on the back of more or less 10-15 kg. So I was up to my hips in the snow. Bravo Manu, well done! ;-))
I told the children to go back to a tree, and to wait there. They walked comfortable around me and knocked me on my head. From the tree they began to shout „Hop hop Daddy! Go daddy, goooo! It’s only a small walk ha ha ha :-)). "Oh boy, should I ever get out of this mess, they will have a surprise!“ I could not walk, because this was impossible in deep snow without snowshoes. So I had to crawl on my belly :-) I think I needed at least in minimum more than half an hour for the distance. For my dog Giorgio the situation was very funny. He thought this was a game and tried to snap my hands and licked my face all the time. I could not defend myself …. it was really a special situation :-) And in the middle of my agony suddenly the phone was ringing. „Oh no, not now, it was my wife, the mother!“ I thought. „Why are we so late? Ohhhh, the kids are still playing. Why do I breathe so hard? I’m also playing with the kids! No, no, noooo!!!! Everything is ok and the kids are fine. We enjoy a little bit more the evening sun and then we come straight home :-)))“ was my response on the phone.
After the conversation on the phone, I turned on my back and admired the sky. What a beautiful life I have he he he :-) And then I saw this panorama! It was heavenly! The evening sun, the mountains and the moon! A true beauty. What else could I ask for ha ha ha? After dinner the both had to make a walk with Giorgio and me. That was the punishment for disobedience! But since everyone got a flashlight, all the children wanted to come out with me. And so it was that I went for a walk with four children and a dog. And the punishment was not any more a punishment but a fun :-)
