These days, nothing but the chain ladder (with which you just need help at the top) holds any real challenge for you at our local parks. Oh boy.

We ate lunch together at the Euroa Butter Factory. Awesome food and a kid’s cubby!

20130313-212732.jpgTrying to get Mags to chase you for your hat. After all your rascalling I couldn’t find it when we were leaving the park. We shall head back and look again tomorrow. (No luck)

If this wasn’t Skip’s 365 photo project, this wet-dog-cloudy-sky definitely would have been my pick of the day. I hope some rain comes, we are nearly out of water again!

20130313-213314.jpg Grateful for your smile between the tears today.

20130227-205844.jpgExtremely difficult choice for the ‘number one’ photo today. I chose to represent your achievement, over sweetness, expression and behavioural quirks.
This afternoon at flinders park you thoroughly mastered two of the slides on your own (experimenting with different ways to descend them, and launching yourself off with ‘ready, set, go!’). You started in the ‘intermediate zone’ and then the toddler bit, and listened when I directed you away from the big slide. Every day I am proud of you, Skip.

Plus there’s your ‘jumping’… On trampolines, over cracks in the pavement, off low steps…

And this face you are pulling a lot, these days, often accompanied by an ‘oooooohhhh’ noise – today imitating the washing machine spin cycle 🙂

And mornings, you are having a lovely time playing in the ‘corner of shame’ – a mess of your clothes, many of which you’ve grown out if and need to be sorted and stored!

You’ve been wanting to cross this bridge on your own for a while, but it takes a lot of concentration. I picked you up early from family day care, we had a sleep, and out to the park. No one was around, at first, so you could do your own thing. A quick run through the ‘mastered’ obstacles, then to this. You crossed twice with my hands guiding you where to hold on, and my voice reminding you to look where you were going. The third time, you did it! You made a cool little circuit in the park: through the tunnel, across the wobbly bridge, quick sit down on a convenient seat, then across this tricksy one. Congratulations!

Aviary edit of pic on my phone. I’m locked out of my computer, thus lost access to my ‘real’ photos.

Today, Skipper Jones, you have been a Wild Thing. You have been a chaotic force of nature with running, squealing, biting, kicking, scratching and wrestling. Maggie, in particular, has borne much of your energy. An hour past your bed time you’ve refused to feed and bounced to the lounge room (and onto Maggs). I was waiting for your tears following her retaliation, but no, she remained patient and pinned you down as you wriggled helpless with screaming laughter.

Thank you for today, Maggie. Carrot?
