I was never really a park mum. I preferred, (still prefer), to go to the beach and build castles, and go for walks and explore. Lately I have started to enjoy the park all over again, and so have my little ones.
We do not go to the park every day, it is something we do every now and then. I am the mum that does like to play with my little ones at the park, not just hang around and chat to other parents. I do a bit of that too, but I do also like to make sure they are safe and having a great time. Also there are moments where you have to join in the fun as there are no other children to play with. Be honest, you love a bit of a go on that slide too! It is a nice way for your little ones to climb and run around, and for you to let that inner child out for a little play!
I met a very close friend in our local park. Even though I class myself as not a park mum, I do have to be open to the idea of going from time to time. Plus it isn't all about me!
Are you a park mum, or dad?
