It was a lovely Saturday morning to spend in the park. Sometimes though the wee man struggles with the crowds that the sunshine brings. He feels he should be able to dictate who uses which equipment which meant lots of shouting of no and tears. Even with other parents being sympathetic I struggle to be patient. I try to explain about taking turns and sharing but reasoning with a two year old is never easy. Somehow distracting him to see the ducks clears the air. Tears and frustration though are quickly renewed with the lack of bread which was in my bag yesterday so why not today? The snack meant for the wee man is suddenly appropriate food for the squirrels. He chases the squirrels and thankfully we find peace with sticks and leaves.
