We went to a new park for a birthday party a few weeks ago, and there was a merry-go-round there! I was so excited, because this was a park favorite of mine growing up, and because I haven't seen one in forever.
I see the potential danger in them...falling off, getting too dizzy...whatever(!), but I love that this park preserved a piece of good, ol' fashioned playground equipment.
I love that I'm raising the boys during this time...it's the time they were meant for and they're going to do amazing things, but I try so hard to teach them those "old fashioned" traditions and manners, and to introduce them to those experiences.
I have the inner mommy struggle on the daily about wanting the perfect balance for my boys. I want them to have structured, learning time, but also want them to be able to play by themselves and discover knew things from doing that. I want them to know how to handle and work an iPad, but don't want them to be in front of a screen for very long.
I'm working hard at it, and having fun doing it. Just want to make sure they get that good, home-training. :)
I hope you have an amazing weekend!!!! Give a kiss, or a squeeze, or a call to a lady in your life who means a lot to you.
