On the Monday afternoon Possum and I were talking after we finished his homework. The conversation went to Oma and Opa, who are soon coming to visit us from Belgium. He wanted to know how many more weeks until they are here, and how long they would stay.
Possum was pleased to hear it's only 3 more weeks till Oma and Opa arrive, and even happier to hear that they are staying for nearly 7 weeks. Then I told him that they would be going to Perth for a week and a half while they are here in Australia.
And Possum, tired from his first day back at school after being sick, promptly burst into tears.
And said, in a sobbing voice:
"They love Perth more than me!"
