I don’t know where you are but where I am the weather has been all over the place. Some days have been glorious but others have been really horrid. Boo to the rain and yeah to sunshine says a lot of parents including myself.
Well this week has been busy with going out on the days where it had been glorious. One of them days was with my son and I went to a wonderful park where there is a river. We had great fun playing pooh sticks which was hard for my son to stop after a while as he was having so much fun. But like everything there is never enough hours and us parents have to Boring chores. On the joy to be a carefree youth.
I digress it is really a pictureique with it it’s glorious rolling hills and over looking the castle a mile or two in the distance. I love beeing able to play hide and seek in the open air as there were so many glorious lucious gree trees with the sun shinning on the leaves. It definitely felt like summer that day. It was also a weekday which is great as there are mainly toddletrs my sons age and it is not as boisterous in the play park. It is a lot more easier being with children on the same wave length and my son had lots of fun playing with new people. This is really positive as my son has a speech delay so watching him after making progress in therapy was a real joy to see.
As my youngest is nursery in the afternoon it gave me chance to have some 1-2-1 time and purely focusing on my sons wishes and wants. As having an age difference can be a blessing but it also can be a hindrance when they both want to play on different things.
When we were at the park my son was at his happiest on the zipwire as it was totally abondened today and unlike other days where it is crowded with the older children. I think through observation my son loves the fast pace of the ride and the feeling if free high up the air. Which seeing him really happy and smiley makes me feel proud as I at times have dealts i supposes this part of being a parernt.
Finally, we ended with a lovely walk through the fields into the town centre where there is a 50’s inspired ice cream parlour where my son felt like he was in hevean with his tub of bubble gum ice cream. Overall, I thought the day out was a success and both mummy and son needless to say slept soundly that night!
