One day I took my son to our local park where he climbed, swung, slid and ran for a grand total of 30 minutes. He had that “I’m kinda over this, mommy” look on his face so we went to the car where I proceeded to change his diaper before making the trek back home. Well, after the change, he got up and spent the next hour exploring the back of my SUV. Jack crawled over the seats, played with all the buttons (the hazard lights being his favorite) and fiddled with all the loose change I had in my console.
Ever since that day his favorite jungle gym is my SUV and he looks forward to spending time flipping blinker switches, turning radio knobs and sticking peanuts in the charger outlets. While we still go to the park we always make time for him to play in our car. Do you have a kid that has a unique place to play?
