Playing at the Park

E Nut had baseball practice today. We only had to go to 3 different parks to figure out which one the practice was supposed to be at. While he was practicing, the other 4 kids played on the playground. I don’t usually go to the park with all the kids by myself. The older kids are easy to hang out with, but Wee Nut and Honey Nut insist on running in 2 different directions at all time. And neither one of them have any fears at all. After about an hour, my nerves are shot. Practice was about an hour and a half tonight. Yeah, I am a bit over protective, but most of my kids get their sense of balance from me. Which is not very good at all. I fall over gates, trip over toys, fall down the stairs and run into things all the time. My kids are pretty much like that much of the time too. We ended our trip with 2 babies kicking and screaming while being dragged to the van. I take that as a sign that they all had a great time. I am bummed that I didn’t realize that my memory card was full, the video at the end of this got cut short.

    I used to feel more comfortable taking the nieces and nephews, but now with all the strange people that show up, it has become more of an axious experience. Not only do you have to make sure they are safe using the equipment, you have to watch out for the others in the park.

    That being said the kids enjoy it so much it is worth it.

      Exactly! It is so much different with the older kids who I know are not going to stumble off the equipment, the little kids are always bouncing into each other and off the equipment, I get so nervous. And then of course there are all the germs and I spend the whole time sanitizing the kids and hoping that they are not going to catch some nasty virus that will put Owain in the hospital.

      It is so much easier to say home and watch the kids play in the back yard where I know they are safe and germ free, but since my 7 yr old was practicing baseball, I thought I would try out the playground next to the field. Not so much fun, lol.
