01st July 2015
We went and bought a bike for Gio from an expat who was leaving the country.

My wife came home with a helmet to go with the bike.

The nanny changed Gio into his sleeping clothes and took him to sleep.
Afte a while, Gio started really crying. I wondered if the nanny had done something to him.
He went on for a while, so I went into their room and found him standing on his bed and crying. Maybe he was kneeling.
I consoled him and told him to sleep.
He settled down. I stayed a few minutes and left. No more crying.
