A few days ago the weather was warm enough to pass my leave-the-house-by-foot test so Simon and I took the kiddos to the park. Julia loves strangers so we assumed she would be thrilled by the throngs of stranger children adorning the monster playground. And we assumed wrong. Fancy that.
As illustrated below ... over the course of about a 14 minute span (14 years in toddler time) ...
She eventually caved and performed a slight pivot ...
and was thrilled with the 'go down the slide by yourself! It will be SO much fun!' session
Time will tell but she just might take after her weirdo mother and be a scarily introverted little soul. Or maybe we just need to expose her to more than her immediate family 24/7.
We'll see .... in a few months ... when we venture out of the cabin again.
*regarding the number of photos we took at the park (published and unpublished) ... I agree with your deserving judgment ... we are ridiculous parents.
