Unfortunately for us who lives in apartment, there's no front yard for our son to run around happily, thus more often than not - now - I force my lazy self to bring him down. It can be quite tiresome at times, especially when he starts throwing tantrum if I don't allow him to do certain dangerous things, like going into the pool on his own. Yes! As small as he is, he's already showing 'determination' to swim on his own, WITHOUT the float. Tsk tsk tsk.. Stubborness inherited from who? :-p
After that, I allowed him to play for a while at the playground, but because his diaper was already almost bursting with all the water accumulated from the pool, I had to bring him up to change. Knowing that he didn't get to fully enjoy his time at the park yesterday, I'm going to bring him down again later. Let him run around as much as he wants to so that he'll sleep early tonight and let his parents spend some quality time together. Hehehe..
I know some mothers will be very irritated seeing us letting our kids going up the slides the wrong way, but I'm with the opinion that my toddler is still learning. Thus I need to let him discover the right and the wrong way of doing it on his own first, of course with some guidance from us.
P/S : Is there any special diapers to use for babies to swim in the pool? Where to get it and how much does it usually cost?
