I first met Shez in January 2001. She was so
shy at first she wouldn't come to me like Ben would. She just hid
behind her Daddy. After a few months she learnt to trust me and both of them new
that I got their dinner, they got me to take them outside and I would give them
In April she met my son Ben for the first time
and he used to stir her from the moment he met her chasing her around the yard
jumping out and scaring her, he used to tease her so much and 2 years later she
still runs away even though he doesn't do it any more.
I remember when she came to Adelaide and we took
here to the Adult playground and we took her down the slippery dip which she didn't
like much but she does now running down them if we go to a playground. Also when
we get near water she just cries so excited and runs straight to it.
My Mum came and stayed with us and she soon
learnt that Nana gave her and Ben biscuits and she would wait till she thought
my Mum was asleep and then get Ben and between the two of them they would try to
pinch them and she figured that by giving them to Ben new we wouldn't tell
him off. While my Mum was there Shez got so excited to go outside she
tripped me up and I put my hand to stop the fall and I fractured my
finger, It still hurts now and again.
I knew she has taken to me as now she leaves
Daddy and comes to me. Two years later I cant imagine not having her, she
makes me laugh with her antics and the way just loves water. Leon says
that every bad habit that she has she learnt from me and he is
probably right, but I love my little Girl and just cant help spoiling her.
