Just like Oprah, here’s what I know for sure

October 13, 2011

Dear Max

So after a little trip to Cape Town, here’s what I really really know for sure, though I really really did know this things before:

– I miss you when I’m not with you
– Sometimes there’s no guessing from whence a toddler tantrum sprouts, nor how to treat it
– Newport Deli is my best
– You love cars
– You can say the word “car” 21 times in two minutes (we counted last night while driving)
– Cape Town has the best Instagram opportunities
– There is such a thing as a well-brought up, mature and non-spoilt teenager with his head screwed on the right way. In fact, I know two – your uncle Josh (now 15) and his friend Nhlanhla (16). This gives me much hope
– Whales are spectacular
– I love running
– It’s futile looking back
– For every awesome person, there are about five bitter and jealous and scared people
– Capetonians look like they’re on holiday ALL the time
– My friends IRL and on Twitter have big hearts – thanks to all those who have bought bears for Reach for a Dream. See www.reachforadream.org.za for details
– The Slow Lounge rocks
– There is no fricking place like home
– I want a dog, preferably a standard poodle. Despite the fact that they look like toy dogs, they’re in fact the second most intelligent pooch out there. I had two growing up – best. dogs. ever
– That I love you more than my heart has place for

    I cannot fathom how my heart just gets fuller and fuller of love for Kade. (terrible grammar, no cookie for me)

    Oh sweet! And they are great dogs, but I’ll stick to the most intelligent ones – which I am 100% sure are Labradors.
