Meagan Musing: Swing

Meagan Musing



A few weeks ago Brian and I took Andrew to the park for the first time. It was a beautiful, sunny day, still a little chilly, but a great day to play outside.

At first he wasn't quite so sure what he thought about the whole thing. There were lots of older kids there, and he was really interested in them. But he got the hang of the swing and decided it was pretty cool. Especially when he got to wear his daddy's hat.

We got him out of the swing and let him play on the big playground equipment for a while. He was running around loving the freedom when he tripped and hit his lip on a ladder on the jungle gym. He bled and cried and I felt terrible. But he got over it pretty quickly. I was afraid he'd have a giant fat lip, but it wasn't bad at all.

We put him back in the swing so he wouldn't end his first park adventure on a low, but I think he was kind of done with the park.

We'll go back, but I think I'd rather keep him in a softer environment for a little longer. :)



  • bleeding and crying? all part of being a little boy!! :o)

    last summer i was hesitant to take benjy to the park, because i knew he'd just eat the sand. this summer, after a whole stinkin' winter indoors, i'll be much braver. the park everyday!
