Henry and the Slide: A Bold Approach

Being a rather selfish creature I haven't wanted to hang out much at the playground over winter. This mild March however has seen some more regular visits to the swings.

Henry had his first proper slide experience on his birthday - a mere six weeks later he had developed this slide technique.

And his approach is only getting bolder.
I'm a very proud, and simultaneously slightly worried, mother (you might be able to tell from my slightly high pitched, trying not to be too shocked, voice).

Lack of posting explanation (if anyone is interested): The planets are obviously aligned in a very strange way as I went out five nights IN A ROW. That certainly hasn't happened for me since the last century, well, maybe not certainly, but it's a pretty rare occurrence. Has made me realise how much I rely on my evening computer time though. There'll be more posts now as my calendar is bare - back to my normal minimal social life.


  1. Oh wow, yes, that's bold! I love it!!! Bravo Henri!
    Yes I was wondering where you were, and I'm glad to hear you went out... 5 nights in a row, I sadly have to admit that I'm not sure it ever happened for me, maybe not even when I was 20 and I did go out a lot :( But, they say 40 is the new 30, which is the new 20, so maybe in my 40's I'll go out more than ever... It sounds pathetic, I know...

    1. Well one of the 'nights out' was for a parents evening at Coco's school - so not sure how much that really counts...

  2. Ha! I laughed and laughed. That fearless step off the precipice! What a great slide, so easy to climb up to. Our nearest slide has a little climbing wall to get up to it which is just a bit tricky for Edward for now.

  3. Hehe! I love it! And can see Henry does too, he looks so proud of his new sliding technique!

    5 nights out on the trot - good for you!
