so i finally took some photos of andy and uploaded to my flickr page. there are some great ones there. but this is one of my favorites:
this weekend we were sorta kinda busy, chris had a few jobs, but they weren't long ones so we still had time to be together. sunday, we took the boys to the park, max loves the park :) i do too but i think i prefer it more so during the week. we seem to have it to ourselves more during the week than on the weekend... but max doesn't seem to mind.
one thing that perplexes me though is this. a few visits ago, there was a mom and a little boy playing near the slide. the little boy wanted to climb up the slide. she stopped him and said, "no honey, you can't crawl up the slide, you have to climb up the stairs first, then you can go down the slide." chris and i found fault with this. i mean, it's a play area, you play there, you are creative there, i feel like if you want to crawl up the slide then crawl up the slide... now it's one thing if there are other kids trying to come down the slide but if that's not the case, why couldn't he climb up the slide? am i wrong here? should we be telling max that he can't climb up the slide? do you think we are wrong here? or is the other mom wrong? i'm torn by this... i feel like kids need to learn "laws" in some sort of way... is this one way to start that training? is there really black and white ways to teach those "laws"? is climbing up the slide really all that horrible? i think we've encountered a gray area in terms of what to do and not do at the park...
and since i've been slim on the photos lately, here's another:
