Holiday near home

There is nothing wrong with having a holiday near home. We stayed only 30 minutes from our house and experienced the contrast of autumn near the beach for a school holiday getaway.Seaside negotiations with a 4 year old:
( Fill in the blanks)
"My baby starfish,
I found it down there under the rocks.
I want to take it home.
It can live in sea water,
we can put it in the bucket and take it home,
but it's my friend,
it's a baby.
No I don't want to put it back in the sea,
it can live with me in water.
Ok I can look at the photo when I miss him"
Seaside negotiations with a 13 year old:
(fill in the blanks)
" Mum look at me,
up here.
Look I'm higher now.
Nah I wanna go higher.
Why?
No it's not.
yeah but we're not at Playcentre."
Finally a last word from Mum
"Ok if YOU get out of the tree, and YOU put the starfish back we'll go say hi to the goats and feed the eels"
