Expectation Vs. Reality: Going to the Playground

Now that Babykins is crawling (finally), she is enjoying exploring more of the world around her. I decided to start taking her to playgrounds after she mastered clambering over the couch.

Every time I take her to a playground, I have this ideal expectation in my head:


We’ll explore the playground equipment together, listen to leaves crunch beneath our feet, and watch squirrels scamper across the grass. I’ll take pictures of her adorably observing the new scenery. It will be educational and fun!

In reality, our trips to the playground mostly look like this:


Sometimes Babykins will eat a stick or leaf for variety’s sake. 

At least I’m still exposing her to new stimuli, right? Even if she is just eating it. . .
