Last week was half term for us and we started it off with a visit to the funfair. Little Bear picked out a huge inflatable slide that he wanted to go on so off he went clambering up the steps, sliding down, and then clambering back up. Except, the second time didn’t end in a slide. It ended in him looking terrified, refusing to sit down, and me being convinced that the reason was he had done a poo in his pants. Our encouragement/frustration didn’t help and he had to be rescued by the attendant. There was no poo, just a bit of vertigo – he’s inheriting all the good things from daddy, thanks for that! After that drama we continued, as good Brits do, to explore in the rain thankfully without further incident.
Gymnastics was still running so we went along as usual, as did several older siblings. They decided it would be a great idea to announce they would put their stamps on their forehead…
The rest of our week continued as normal with park visits and seeing friends, and then we ended the way we began, Donkey Derby and a funfair.
After the slide debacle the week before we tentatively suggested he tried a smaller one. It was an exact repeat of last time – one fun slide followed by one embarrassing rescue! Come on Little Bear, don’t be defeated!
