Julien is our little unwitting fearless chap.
He struts into any lifts before any of us, he chases cats, dogs, birds, he smiles and waves to strangers of all races and ages (except when he is in a bad mood).
And so I thought of my little brave boy that nothing in this world could scare him. Until this….
One of the weekdays, the good papa and mama decided to bring Julien to the outdoor water playground at Tampines One.
We started him off by helping him play on the slide.
Then we proceeded to the water area!
Look at what this place had to offer… for FREE!
Daddy first placed Julien with the hippos….
But Julien stood there and looked quite lost.
Probably due to a lack of exposure? Oops, it’s time for us to start bringing him out to the play more often!
Julien then started to put his one hand out finally…
Except that he stayed there for the next 5 minutes!
Daddy decided to help him alittle by carrying him to another area. But the water splashed into Julien’s eyes and he started wailing and running towards….
The same original spot… With the hippos.
So for the rest of our time there, little Julien stood at his safe spot… playing with that single sprout of water.
Not so fearless after all!
