The last time we went to soft play we had a result….whoop, the first time N clambered up the steps, through the tunnel and down the slide all by himself. All very exciting for me. It means I don’t have to drag myself round it any longer.
Although he also decided he wanted to follow some older children up onto the bigger climbing frame and slides. So up I followed, squeezed into the slide (note to self, get willpower back again and sort diet out!) with him on my lap and slid down (err, eased our way down as it was really hot and sticky).
It’s great seeing how different they are in different situations and how quickly they get their confidence. However, N does get bored quickly of ball pits and climbing/slides…he likes the little plastic playhouses best – anything with a door on that he can open and shut.
