The treasure box

Mum, is such a spoil sport and what an eagle eye she has! She always appears as soon as things get interesting. “No”, “Stop”, “Don’t”.. that’s all I hear. Tell me why would God make such fascinating things if he didn’t intend us to explore? The sand in the garden, the electric sockets at home, the water in the bathroom pot, mums makeup stuff - to touch, to taste, to feel - that’s what they’re for.


Today’s my chance. While mum gets that cake I’ll dive into this shiny treasure box and see what I find.

Hah! this is will be fun.
