We went to soft play. I should just leave it there for our Living Arrows update this week. Having seen a couple of our friends do the same with their babies lately, we thought it was time to check it out. Monkey is crawling like a rocket now, standing well and has started walking himself along things… to put it simply, he’s off.
Along with great movement comes great bruises (him) and great terror (me). Our house is baby friendly in some respects but also a death trap. His favourite toy is the coffee table, complete with hard, sharp corners that are just at the right height for a little boy’s face. I spend my entire existence with my hands over the edge whilst saying ‘careful’ like a broken record. Anyway, I digress.
Off we trotted to soft play. If you’re planning making a trip, I suggest taking someone with you who’ll enjoy going in with your child. That was my plan. It left me on the sidelines ‘looking after the bags’ whilst the boys had a bit of bonding time together. It was loud, bright and apparently incredible in the eyes of our baby! He loved walking around the activity table, watching the older children (it’s his latest obsession!) and knocking over the foam towers that his Daddy built. Meanwhile, I loved the cake, the chance for some Kindle time and the exhausted baby that I got back at the end. Win win!!
