We have unfortunately come to the end of Frankfurt’s Water Play season in mid-September. If the weather forecast is anywhere near being accurate, yesterday would probably be the last warm day of 2016. It has been a rather lovely summer compared to the unbearable heat wave we had in 2015 which lasted for weeks and weeks.
This year we’ve taken whatever opportunity we had to bring Theo outdoors to play. That’s because he wasn’t even walking last summer so it was still fairly easy to go after him. But now that he’s active, there is a constant need to burn the energy he has.
With Autumn round the corner, we’ll have to be a little more creative with our playtime. As much as possible, I prefer him to play outdoors. Fresh air always does both parents and child more good than harm. I’ve prepared his Autumn/ Winter outdoor play outfits so it doesn’t really matter if he gets a little messy. From this weekend, he’ll also be back at Music Together for “music lessons” which he really enjoyed a year ago.
As much as possible, I would like to do activities he enjoys together with him before baby number 2 arrives. After all, once number 2 is here, it would be divided attention most of the time.
