The boy-child seems to be in the full grip of adolescent angst at the moment, so I’m shielding myself from the worst of it by remembering what an utterly delightful little boy he used to be.

This seems an appropriate shot for a “random moment of delight” particularly as I can’t remember who was more delighted – the boy child with his haka, or his proud Kiwi father.

Random moments of delight

  1. Thank you so much for entering my challenge! And what a wonderful moment of delight. Yes, I can relate to teenage angst (I’m pretty sure it last through at least age 22 right? 😉 ) I didn’t know what haka was but now that I do, he is surely in the throes of that pure exuberant energy. Maybe teen boy-child needs to do a version of haka!

    • Thanks Meghan; seeing the challenge was a moment of pure serendipity! I hope the angst-y thing isn’t going to last another 6 years!!!! But you’re right; maybe he does need his own version of a haka right now! 🙂
