“Come on, Peter! This is supposed to be fun!” These are phrases I find myself saying often. Very often. This past weekend I tried my best to do “fun” things with Peter, to get him out of the house and away from his iPad. On Saturday, my sister was visiting so we went to a nearby state park to play in this adorable Splash Pad:
I first had to convince Peter that it was okay to enter the gate. Mind you, we’d been there before! It took another ten minutes for Peter to get near the water, then another ten until he seemed to be having a bit of fun:
By then I was hot and sweaty, so when Peter sat himself on a bench a short time later and tried to put on his shoes, I was fine with leaving.
