Now that I have a toddler who loves to walk around exploring the world, I have to make an effort to get out more. I used to in my old hood but since moving in January I have turned into a real homebody, having lots of days where we don’t leave the house! Anyway, I’ve started making an effort to go to one of the nearby parks on days when we don’t have any other plans. This morning the toddler had a great time picking up bark chips, going on a swing, going down a slide, watching a man pruning a tree, watching a man rinse paint out of a paintbrush, circling around a tree (a few times), and looking at colourful tiles in a concrete path!
We spent some time crawling along the path while the toddler pointed at tiles and I said the colour they were. “That one’s blue. That one’s yellow. That one’s black. That one’s orange. That’s a white tile. That one has a picture of a butterfly on it. That’s a blue tile. et cetera… ” The park is so fun.
