Rosen has become so much more independent on the playground lately. Up until the last month or so, she would last maybe 20 minutes or so on the playground before she was ready to go home. I guess not being able to do much without my help made it less appealing.
Now, I pretty much have to drag her to the car. I love that she can entertain herself for longer periods of time. It’s nice to be able to sit back and watch her, instead of having to help her up every step, and down every slide. Now, she will climb up the stairs and go down the slides over and over and over again, all on her own.
Obviously, she still needs a little bit of help here and there, especially when she insists on climbing up the equipment designed for older kids. I can tell though that being able to do more on her own has given her a boost of confidence, and has made our park visits much more enjoyable for both of us!
