Wow. It has been a very long time since I blogged about our Adventure Days. To be honest, there haven’t been that many Adventure Days lately. Between sickness and the freezing temperatures and a very ornery 2 y/o, staying home has just felt easier. I’m very much an introvert so if my brain can figure out an excuse to stay home, then I probably will. The goal of Adventure Day was to push me out of that comfort zone. To have a set day of no excuses. But, then winter happened and my enthusiasm for trying new things froze in the snow.
Now that tiny man is officially not napping, though, getting out of the house, even for an hour, is a must. He does terrify me out in public right now, though. He’s a runner. As soon as his feet hit the ground he’s moving. He’s very sly and very fast. He’s long gone, out of sight before you even realize he’s about to take off. My other kids never did this. At least not to this extent. He has absolutely no fear. A trait that will get him far in life. He’ll be able to reach for those stars, jump and never worry about the fall. BUT, right now, mama worries. Mama worries constantly about him getting hurt, lost or stolen.
Currently researching toddler backpack leashes on Amazon.
We did adventure recently. He did run off and through the building. Luckily we were able to go in the afternoon and there really weren’t any other people there so there was no one to 1. judge me or 2. steal my baby.
We checked out Wonderscope Children’s Museum which is super cute. I took my older kids there a few times when they were little, but it had been a long time. It’s in an old school building and each classroom has a different theme of activities. There’s a farm, a grocery store, an art room, a water play room and lots more. They also have the gym set up with a climbing wall and swings and all sorts of activities to burn off some energy.
I think we’ll probably head back again one of these cold days. Next time maybe I’ll bring that leash…
