Friday was Hannah’s swimming lesson for months now after leaving the pool she’s been asking if she could go to the park which you can see from inside the swimming baths but the weathers not been great for it
This Friday was different we had SUN and with it being half term we decided to take her to the park it was a bit of a risk as she doesn’t like coming away but we was hoping that with her having swimming lesson straight after it would be a lot easier
First thing she did was run straight for the climbing frames which includes monkey bars these have become a firm favorite with her lately her dads always nearby in case she needs a little help even if she doesn’t want him there always the independent
Next she moved onto the roundabout which didn’t last long spying a free swing and running right over I’m sat on the beach and as soon as i see she’s heading for the swing i wait for the yell mum can you push me but it never came instead she jumped right on and started swing all on her own
it melted my heart to see her do this all by herself after all those years before when the doctors said that she may never walk but then came the words that i had been waiting for mum can you push me which really made me smile 🙂
Before she came off the swings me and her always have a swing together its part of our swing ritual
Then came her 10 minute warning that we would be leaving soon which made her run back to the monkey bars 5 minute warning and she was off everywhere swings slide roundabouts
Time to leave, at first she was reluctant to come off rushing to yet another climbing frame after telling her “that if she didn’t come off the park nicely we won’t be coming back for a while” giving her to the count of 3 and telling her “that she might be late for her swimming lesson” she finally decided to come off to which we told her “because she came off the park nicely we would bring her back soon”
I find it amazing that a simple game of snap can have my daughter in fits of laughter but it’s true.
Yesterday after tea me and my daughter sat down to a game of snap. I shuffled the small deck of cards – which she got from the play centre early on in the afternoon from one of the machines that they systematically place right next to the exit.
After all the cards were shuffled and dealt out it was on with the game, taking it in turns to place our cards down anticipating when the first snap would come. On the turn of the next card and there it was! I left a short pause giving my daughter a chance to snap but it never came so SNAP — I got the first pile of cards.
I placed the next card down and I noticed this time she had a small hand hovering over the pile of cards. She was even looking at her cards before she placed them down, getting SNAP before I even had a chance, so I gave her a little tickle asking her if she was cheating, to which she let out a roar of laughter.
This carried on for a while. Her little hand hovering over the pile of cards with big belly laughter as she shouted out SNAP. There was so much laughter that she even had to go to the loo. She even took her cards with her so I wouldn’t nick any.
When she came back the game recommenced. After a few cards had been placed down I finally got the chance to claw some cards back, shouting snap!! Then the little hovering hand was back which caused her to laugh even more as she knew the next snap would be hers.
I was down to 3 cards to her 49, so I knew that the game would soon be over and my daughter would be crowned the (rightful) winner.
