This week, radio personality, presenter and actress Fifi Box took her four-year-old daughter Trixie to Bali.
She also learned a very, very “valuable parental lesson” about travelling with young children: never, ever leave home without your child’s favourite toy.
Posting on Instagram, 40-year-old Fifi revealed that in the rush to pack bags and escape Australia’s winter for the tropical paradise, she had forgotten to pack Trixie’s baby doll.
She quickly learned that her daughter would not be about to cope without it, sharing with her 197,000 followers that Trixie had been asking “for her baby doll at five minute intervals for three days straight”.
So what’s a mother to do?
“Spend half a day in a taxi driving all over Bali trying to find a toy store,” Fifi revealed.
“But it was worth it for this smile.”
I learnt a very valuable parental lesson this holiday. Never forget to pack your daughter’s baby doll because she will ask for her baby doll at five minute intervals for three days straight until you spend half a day in a taxi driving all over Bali trying to find a toy store. But it was worth it for this smile ????
