I love the idea of the first times that I get to do things with Sprog and I have to balance that with working and I worry that I will miss things. During the holidays I run the risk of becoming a woman possessed with doing exciting things and overly structured play!
However, during the Easter break, I did have a great time when we explored one of Sprog’s current obsessions… the bus!
He was hilarious and totally unsure about he enjoyed it or not. After weeks of obsessing over buses and shouting at every one that he sees, he was excited as the bus pulled up. When we jumped on and unbuckled him, he clung like a limpet to me for the whole journey.
He was baffled and puzzled by the concept of moving without being strapped down. He was fascinated with the other people on the bus. I had to hold him back from pressing the bell a bit too early, several times.
As we got off the bus, he smiled and waved at the boy who had just got on the bus. He screamed when I tried to put him down and I think that he did enjoy it so we’ll be doing that again in the summer holidays!
