9th plan b | a smaller play centre instead of the really, really big one

You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the words
I am the tune - Neil Diamond


Perhaps it's because these boys are nine months apart that I can see so many similarities. Like, "whoah, we were just there a few months back". Or perhaps its because his mother and I compare notes on a regular basis, to check that our boys are "normal".

Yes, they are boys, and yes, there is lots of testosterone going through their little bodies right now. Yes, they have outbursts and have no idea why, and hit things just because.

But one thing is certain: these boys have a good time anywhere.

The plan today was to head to one of those big indoor play centres: the ones with the big slippery dips and all those large balls.

And as it also happens: the ones with the millions of other children. (Once again we forgot about the school holidays.)

So, Plan B today was heading to a much smaller venue where there were only three other children. And a much smaller play centre.

I confess there was initial disappointment. But once there was confirmation that Charlie was going to be there, we were happy to just play wherever he would be.
