By The Way…

A child’s life doesn’t need to be filled with RainyDayGames all the time. In fact, the opposite is true – children need time to play by themselves.  For one thing, it gives their imagination a chance to shine.

As such, I left Gerry to himself for a good long time this afternoon.  (And also, the washing needed folding and the hoovering needed doing).  He spent at least an hour playing in the garden, trying to balance as many stones as possible on his wheelbarrow, which seemed odd from my adult perspective, but was thoroughly engaging for him. I think we are sometimes in danger of ‘overthinking’ parenting – sometimes the most simple of things will keep them happy!
