I’m participating in the Best Of 2009 Blog Challenge. Every day this month, I write something different about what’s happened this year.
See this little boy here? He doesn’t sit still, like, ever.
This is often a problem. We still live in a small flat; it’s winter, so we can’t use the garden; David’s bedroom is David-safe, but everywhere else he has to be either strapped down or closely supervised. The weather is horrible at this time of year, and he’s only just walking, so trips to the park happen once in a blue moon. This is why we spend most afternoons in the best place in the world, ever: a soft-play centre a half-hour drive down the road.
I know I come across as slightly obsessed, but most of the pictures of David at the Daily Photo are taken there. They have the biggest baby and toddler area in the country, with lots of lovely sensory things for babies. It’s incredibly well thought-out, and David adores it. His absolute favourite are the fish in the bubble tube.
I love it too, of course. It’s very reasonable to get in. The food is good: standard soft play centre fare, but just really, really nice. (There’s a nice balance of healthy and unhealthy: David has started asking for chocolate buttons when we go there.). The most wonderful thing is that he can run, well, high-speed crawl around in complete safety, and tire himself out nicely.
I’m going to let the pictures do the talking.
