Culture Shock

Walking through the Airport Carpark...

Bethany: What's this Mum? Is it a Zebra Crossing? Wow!

And a number of times in the car, speaking of things she could see...

Bethany: It's so big, huge.

Later we pull up at traffic lights...

Sophie: Oh no! A traffic jam!

Later again at traffic lights...

Sophie: So many red lights.

Bethany: (Sigh) What do they all mean?

Me: Well those traffic lights tell cars to stop. Those ones over there tell people not to cross the road. Those ones on the cars tell us the brakes are on and those other ones on the cars are just there so we know where the back of the car is.

Bethany: Wow.

After hearing that we're having chicken for dinner...

Bethany: Wow, is Granny going to catch a chicken?

:) Have fun.
I remember Joshua making a couple of 'We're in a traffic jam!' comments.
And I would surjest not taking the kids to Toys-r-us. My Aunt did that on our first Christmas back and I almost had a panic attack (too much, sensory overload).
