After following The Scarecrow Trail at Wisley, this time we’re visiting Sittinghurst in Kent. The setting is a beautiful cottage and the glorious weather meant POD could really make the most of the outdoors. Just as well given we’re potty training!
First she discovered a little house to play in, complete with kitchen, spades and buckets. POD adores the playhouse she has at home so she was straight through the door washing her hands and preparing some invisible food.
Not long after she spotted a slide with a little tower at the top of it. After scaling the rungs like a spider, with a spade, she spent a good few minutes taking in her surroundings before venturing down the slide. Once an ant had been removed from her path.
Attached to the slide and tower were two types of swing and a single monkey bar. After testing both swings, POD insisted on being pushed whilst she held onto the monkey bar. Her love for climbing has led to her being incredibly strong so she did brilliantly.
After her first alfresco pee break, POD wanted to test out an old wooden seesaw. She wasn’t very sure about it at first but enjoyed being ‘up in the sky’. Whilst there she spotted a trampoline on the other side of the garden. Within seconds she was off the seesaw running across the lawn towards it. Realising she couldn’t get on it herself, there was much jumping and excited requests for Mummy to pick ‘my’ up.
Words cannot describe how excited POD was to be on a trampoline. She found it the most hilarious experience. Even more so if she ran round in circles or squashed her face up against the safety net. Amusing to watch her jumping too given she hasn’t mastered keeping her feet together!
The zip on the net was almost as exciting as the trampoline itself, as was lying down. A stark reminder of how tall our nappy-less toddler has become recently.
Once that was over POD played in a plastic car, using blades of grass as her petrol, before trying on Daddy’s flip flops and pretending to fly. It was inevitable the stick and a leaf she found would be used to turn me into a blue frog.
