Although I’ve always loved a good park, one thing I didn’t realize about Critter hitting the toddling stage was how important parks would become to me. We take Critter to the park several times a week. She’s sort of come to expect it. Leaving the park too early or being stuck inside because of bad weather can cause a major meltdown. I mean, I get it. The swings are way more exciting than our living room. There’s nothing really exciting about our kitchen, other than food. Parks have way better hardware.
When my best friend came to town last weekend, we had a little bit of time to kill. We were near a park I had been wanting to try out, and she (and her boyfriend) gamely agreed to check it out with us. Isn’t being the friend of a new parent fun?
Seriously though— major shoutout to my friend for being game to go check out a playground.
