Big Girl Swings

The title of this maybe somewhat misleading.

For those of you who typed in these exact words but were expecting to find the services of an overweight lady looking to share her 'time' with you and your partner, I would suggest you select another result from your search engine as I think you'll be sorely disappointed with this site.

However, as you're here, you might as well read on before you go though...

Recently, we went to visit my parents in Teignmouth. I won't bore you I promise!

We visited the children's play park located in the town centre where Drew was able to explore and experience the varied apparatus for her age group. Not forgetting to drag her minder around with her..."Grandad" of course.

Normally, Drew sticks mostly to the toddler swing and
small slides. But she also likes to sit and watch the other children play. She seems to have a fascination for this. Nothing wrong with that! Everyone does it...people watching!

Anyhoo...she had been watching some older children on the older swings. The swings WITHOUT a front and a back. Just a seat and two chains. Drew then decided she wanted to have a go. With her minder's assistance, she climbed aboard and held on tightly and was swung back and forth by an obedient Grandad (too obedient for his own good sometimes!!).

I know it's not much to write home about, but it did make me smile. Drew is growing up fast before our eyes. I'm sure she'll always like coming to the park though. Although ten years down the line, she'll probably be leaning up against the swings, carving her initials into the paintwork, smoking a cigarette (I SO hope not!) and using her blackberry to tell her friends how embarrassing her parents are for putting up photos (like this one below) onto the Internet. I'll just tell her Daddy made me do it!

For info...this is a photo
taken yesterday (17th Nov 09) just after Drew had asked to have a pooh in her potty and produced a wonderful specimen. She received a BIG gold star on her chart and a 'well done' sticker, plus the chance to flush it away, say 'by-bye' AND wash her hands over and over again. She doesn't know how lucky she is!!! The day before, she did the same, but it was more of a lonely malteaser.

Drew, if you ARE reading this and you're 20 years old. I'm sorry. But I obviously have too much time on my hands OR I'm just a proud Mummy. Which do you think???
