Last week we met up with some friends at Supera Park. It’s amazing to watch how playground play has changed for Jack over the years. It used to be all about the swings and structures. Now it’s more about creative play in the open spaces. The structures are some days not used at all, or if they are, they are not used for the purpose intended. Nowadays a crawl space may become a jail. I often see the good guy/bad guy game complete with finger shooters. Jack only needs one friend there to have a lot of fun, and a lot of the time a group of kids his age will end up running around in hysterics pretending they are pirates or some kind of superhero.
Having grown up in a family of girls I find it all so fascinating. We never played these types of games. There was a lot of Barbies and playing house. Ironically it is not that dissimilar to what I do now. I guess you can say that I’m living the dream! Perhaps that is why I find my life so great. I’ve been practicing for it my whole life!
Must be so frustrating for most men. They grow up practicing to be super heros, pirates and good guys. They end up in front of some computer all day, sitting on their butts.Pin It
