Looking forward to sunny weather and beautiful days for me and the boys to enjoy outside.

Last year my outside routine with the boys consisted of daily park outings which was great because I was able to handle the both of them. Last year they were still getting the hang of walking so I was able to get to each one quickly and redirect them.

NOW, things have really changed and taking both boys to the park by myself is really a big challenge. Safety is my number concern when it comes to taking the boys out to the park by myself. One wants to climb the play structure while they other one wants to go drifting into the parking lot- not a good scenario and it can get this mom stressed out.
As the boys grow and develop so do my strategies how we do things. It’s like a never ending adapting that goes on. They are getting older so I know that they can follow directions a little better than when they were one year old. I’m not gonna give up on the park but I am hoping that we can find some kind of safe way to be there without mom pulling her hair out.
Our backyard is another option for the boys. How I would love to turn it into a fun toddler play area. Just a few months ago I bought them a water table and they also received tricycles for Christmas so with a few more additions and tweaks I plan to transform that space into a great toddler hangout.
