Well the weather is officially on the turn. It’s getting colder, especially first thing in the morning, and we’ve had a few rainy days.
But this isn’t going to stop us from getting out. Especially now Tom is walking and so is no longer having to crawl his way through wet grass.
I thought I was going to have to look into some barefoot shoes for him (are barefoot wellies a thing? Must check…) but fortunately found a pair of these ‘rain footies’ on eBay. They are essentially plastic bags that attach with some elastic round the ankles. It’ll be a long time before he grows out of them, but he still seems able to walk ok. Waterproof trousers are definitely next on the wishlist.
We’ve enjoyed pottering around the cat litter box garden, investigating the local wildlife.
And the play area of the park is completely abandoned when it’s wet, giving Tom a chance to play without getting trampled by bigger kids.
All in all, wet weather is no reason to stay inside. We love playing in the rain!
