At the playground, Berkeley, CA.
We pick up the older cousins weekly at their nearby elementary school (probably the A#1 benefit of co-housing with the in-laws: the childcare swaps ROCK). Â This day, after picking up the girl cousin we went up to play at the big kids’ playground. Â It was quiet and toddler-friendly. I even managed to keep my cool when the little ones climbed high on the play structure.
Thank heavens the little guy’s internal sense of his limits aren’t way off my own, very risk-intolerant ones. Not for long, I know. But for the moment, I’m grateful.
