Happy 4th of July from Heidelberg Castle!
Manshow has taken the theme too far, with noisy and hard-fought battles against sitting in the stroller, or holding hands, or staying within shouting distance.
Extra-special tactics include collapsing on the ground in various queues, collapsing on the floor of the cable-car, collapsing under the table in the restaurant, and wailing "ouchy ouchy ouchy mamaaaa!!!" any time I hold his hand. (Gently hold his hand -- but try asserting that to passers-by casting startled glances at the spectacle.)
When it comes to three-year-old boys, independence is so overrated.
