This morning Sofia came into our bedroom carrying her Kiwi Shapes book. She climbed up into bed and we proceeded to read her book. On the last page the kiwi is sleeping in his bed under the stars and crescent moon. Sofia says "Shhhhhhh, Night Night Wiki".
Oh how could this one little sentence not bring back floods of memories of the real "Goodnight Kiwi". We knew if we were watching the Goodnight Kiwi we had stayed up WAY past our bedtime. And, thanks to You Tube I was able to share this with my family. For those of you who don't know, before 24 hour television the Goodnight Kiwi signaled the end of nightly broadcasts in New Zealand. He last aired in 1994.
Okay.....gotta go now. One little person is sitting next to me saying "Wiki...again".
