5. Sitting the Toddler.

Being the late 60s and my father being the only driver in the house, I wouldn’t have left our home very often. And being the late 60s in Wellington, New Zealand, there wasn’t that much on offer to entertain a mother and baby in town. Play Centre didn’t happen until age three so until then I would’ve relied on my mother to entertain me throughout the day. A resourceful woman, Mum found me a myriad of things to look at and interact with. Drawers of shells, pretty pebbles, sea glass and baby driftwood were stroked and studied. When they were exhausted and my stomach started calling, homemade buns were employed.
