Tiny Talk -- Park Day
Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting! If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor! Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary.
Last Friday was a glorious, spring day in North Texas so we took advantage of it and went to the park. That Other Kid absolutely LOVES to be outside and around other kids. He started anticipating it from the moment I told him about it...We were scheduled to leave a little after 12 noon...and I didn't tell him about it till about 11 :))
On the way to the park (which was not our normal park) he started getting antsy. He wanted to know where the park was, why we were going to this one, etc. I told him to relax he would have a great time, there were going to be TONS of kids there!
Then he said something so uncharacteristic for him, he said, "Will I know anyone there?" He normally doesn't have any problems around new people as long as I'm around, but all of a sudden he wanted to make sure he would have "friends" there!
As it turned out we met some people there that had a little boy just a tad bit older than he and they played for a solid hour without taking a breathe! Then a few minutes later his bff showed up and so he had the "bestest time ever" at the park!
When it was time to leave, after he was in the car with a drink, he asked, "When can we come back and play with my new friend?"
He never ceases to amaze me!!
Hope ya'll get a chance to get the park soon!! It will be good for everyone! Ya know sunlight is the best cure for the blahs and a great source of Vitamin D!! Not to mention it is a great way to exhaust those "little bundles of energy".
