Small Steps Amazing Achievements 1st Aug 2013

Today we were invited to Hatton Country World and I’ll be writing about our whole day separately.  But two things happened today that warranted mention in the Linky Small Steps Amazing Achievements 1st Aug 2013.

Monkey is not the most adventurous little boy, he certainly doesn’t imitate Indiana Jones in any way.  But today, he was very brave and went in the big sandpit at Hatton Country World WITHOUT my being attached to his side.  This may seem like nothing to you, but to us, it’s immense.  He is very unsure in new situations, especially where there are lots of unknown people.  So for him to have the confidence to play without me being by his side was a really big thing.  I could actually sit on the grass outside the sandpit in the sunshine.

Secondly, Monkey actually pedaled himself on the pedal tractors – only a little bit, but that was a first.  We’ve been trying to encourage him to pedal his own tractor/digger for months with no success.  But today, after a bit of Mummy pushing, he actually pedaled himself – not for long, but hopefully it was a start – we so want to buy him a bike!

These may seem like the norm for a 3 and half year old but for Monkey they are small steps amazing achievements on 1st August 2013 🙂

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
