Now that the weather is better (yay!) the wee girl and I spend close to an hour at the park each morning after dropping the boys to school.
She plays with her friends, I chat with mine. It’s a lovely start to the day.
Today, we stayed a little longer than others as we were heading straight to a play date (well, I was dropping the wee girl at friends house and having a few hours to myself!).
The wee girl has taken a liking to the big seat swing, insists on being strapped in (very safety conscious that girl…) and will spend ages happily swinging back and forth. I just need to give her a push every so often! Today, she decided to have a pretend nap, as you do.
She’s recently become tall enough to reach one of the lower monkey bars, so quite some time is spent swinging shouting look how strong I am mummy!
Then it was on to the slide. She has been trying to persuade me to slide with her all week. I have claimed to be too big, too old, too anything to get out of it. Today, we were alone. No potential for embarrassment or raised eyebrows, and I looked at her little pleeeease face and gave in.
We spent the next ten minutes having races, which of course she won; giggling hysterically. It was brilliant, and while I wouldn’t normally include these slightly blurry images (taking photos while racing is a bit tricky; I gave up quite quickly!) I just love her expressions and the fact that she is clearly trying to beat me :)
And, who could resist some silly selfies…
A few months ago (even if the ground hadn’t been knee deep in snow) I would have probably rushed away, keen to get started on errands and to squeeze in those elusive snatches of blogging time.
But, playing at the park is a lot more fun than errands :)
