Few days ago we went once again on a journey to our cottage. There was some talk about helping the old people out with their work at the house, anyways this doesn’t concern me as I am busy eating and sleeping all day long.
Now this journey is very boring, nothing but trees and lakes and the entire time. Okay, I don’t know about the entire time as I usually sleep in this uncomfortable seat in the back of the car. Wonder what mom would think about being stuffed in such a seat for several hours and just some annoying toys hanging down in her face. At least dad came up with the idea to visit great-aunt in Tampere so I could get some food and a new nappy. Seriously, how can my parents stay that long there, too hot! Finally they realized that it was too warm there and we continued our journey once again (not after some loud encouragement on my behalf).
Lets sum up the rest of the journey: tree, tree, tree, lake, mosquito, tree, lake, tree, elk, tree, lake, cottage. Finally there, took us long enough!
The next days were just so so, nothing too special here. Heard from dad something about a witch burning but I am not too sure what he meant, didn’t see my crazy grandma anywhere. My annoying parents didn’t even let me get close to that fire/ mom didn’t carry me close enough, well, her own fault as I had some special program for the night…
My second cousin once removed pissed me off really much the other day. Seriously, what does she think coming here with her parents and showing off her cool hairstyle? So what that you are just one month old and have more hairs than even my less crazy grandpa? Fine, wont talk to you for a while or so. At least I have my über-cool sailor hat to cover my bald head!
Yesterday old grandparents went to some summer theater and left me alone with my parents. Thanks a lot grandpa, you owe me another session of carrying your beloved grandson around the lake. Anyways, I ended up with my parents driving around town and showing some stuff. There was even this one man who stands every day at the same crossing for at least twenty years and waves to passing cars. I tried to wave back but my hand didn’t reach high enough for the window.
In the end dad had another little surprise and carried me on top of the highest hill in the area. He told some stories about downhill skiing in winter and snowboarding but I think this white stuff called snow is just a myth, never seen it in my entire life. Great view there, but where’s my food?
Tomorrow its going back home, another session of tree, tree, lake, tree, mosquito, tree, lake…

I loved reading this, put a smile on my face. Very refreshing to hear from Nathan 😉 Sounds like everyone is traveling far and wide, adventures left, right and centre. Enjoy the scenery while it lasts, it’s not something you will see everyday when you grow up, Nathan.
Very impressed with your writing skills, Timo. I felt like I was reading a book.
Thank you, it is nice to hear some good comment about my writing. It is always hard to write. In another language and English is my second foreign language I learned back in the day 🙂
I love to read it from Nathan’s view… and he’s so adorable!
Wait till he cries for food, not adorable at all!
Oh wow Nathan types really well for a boy his age 😀
I am impressed as well, he types indeed very good however is spoken capabilities are rather poor
Haha! Love it!
Thank you, it was interesting to try to write from the eyes of such a little kid 🙂
