See this precious happy joyful face? He was all about climbing this huge climbing structure. He saw some of his older friends playing on it and knew he had to conquer it.
He thought about it for a little while.
Hung on a random bar, before climbing back and on trying again.
Played with his tongue for maximum concentration
Decided he was making a go for it!
starting to be a little fearful
Officially scared and not going any further
My friend, Sharla, and I were standing below it observing. She had just finished telling me the story about her youngest climbing up to the top of the arch and being too afraid to come down.
Sharla had to climb up and rescue him when I realized that my jean skirt wouldn't be the most appropriate attire for climbing on top of an arch.
Once she climbed up there, she wasn't quite sure what to do with him. We convinced him to let go of her for long enough to reach for me. Ahhh, silly guy!
What kind of predicaments have your children found themselves in at playgrounds?
I'm finishing this post off with one of my favorite pictures from this park playdate. Here B is with my friend's beautiful children! I love all their faces!
