What happened to $2.00 Rides?
This afternoon I was in the fortunate position to spend some time with three of our children. Kim was conducting a workshop for an Early Education and Care Centre on Reflective Practice. I am bias, but she did a great job from what I hear…. Anyway, back to the children. While Kim was conducting the workshop the children and I went down the mall to get some basic shopping done.
We had a great time…. Sorted out the shopping very quickly and then onto the important stuff. So what is the important stuff you ask? For the children it is was the Bungy Trampoline and then looking at Art Supplies, Video Games, the Electronics store and then Toys’R’Us. What more could a child ask for?
The children all had a great time on the bungy trampoline. They each got to do a backflip, though it seemed to be hard work for each of them to achieve this. Anna certainly made a lot of noise during the process. Well I now know what Angela wants for her birthday…. I learnt a lot about art supplies and discovered Angela’s passion for painting. As for electronics, what child or adult does not like them? Attila spent too much time on the demo game console.
As this was all occurring I started to wonder as I viewed the little child ride in the mall. The ride was $2.00….. The bungy trampoline was $10.00….. I guess this is one of those additional costs as the children grow. The children had a great time. It was a special time with the children and though not planned the day turned out to be a great day.
What special moments do you have with your children?
Have you found that sometimes the unplanned activities end up being the most special?
