Park Playtime

1 Comment


Today we went to the park with Vinny and Lala to get the kids out of the house.  Today was the first day at any park that I was able to just sit back and watch the kids play together.  It was amazing.  And nice!  Well, until the boys found the working drinking fountain.

But before they soaked themselves, the boys (and Butterfly) played so well.  Apparently, Vinny and Pirate were on a team and Butterfly and Professor were on a team.  They were running away from each other and all over the playground equipment having a grand old time.

Except there is one spot in the playground equipment that has a really big step.  The big kids handled it just fine.  And Pirate, the monkey, handled it just fine too.  But Professor just couldn’t get down off of it.  Normally at this point I would jump up and go help him.

Today, Butterfly turned around and helped him down.  And every time they came to that spot in the play ground, Butterfly would wait for Professor and lift him down to the ground.  What a kind big sister.

Professor also tripped once and I stood up to go help him brush himself off.  Butterfly beat me too it though and helped him get up and brushed him off and made sure he was okay.

For all her crazy ways, she has such a kind heart.  I’m so glad to see it.

    It is wonderful when the older ones finally get old enough to help out some, and be more independent and be trusted a bit more. I am finding that out with my older two, and it is making outings sooo much easier because I know they will stay close, and they can help me keep tabs on the baby. Glad you had a fun day at the park! It was beautiful weather for it too.
