Changes To Make Before Letting Your Kid Play Outside

It’s always good to let your little one play outside. After all, it opens up a load of opportunities for your little one. They can run around to their heart’s content without you worrying about what they might break. And your kid can see beautiful plants and wildlife which can make them more aware of nature. You can also buy plenty of kid’s toys they can use while outside in the yard. For example, a ball pit or a paddling pool can be top choices for your little one, especially when they have friends over to play. And you can even do a spot of gardening with your child. After all, as we said before, it’s great for your little one’s development if you work together to grow fruit and veg or build a compost. But despite all the benefits, you do need to make sure the garden is safe before you let your child go and play out there. After all, there are some things which could cause them to get sick or injured if you don’t change them before letting your little one out. Therefore, here are some changes to make before letting your kid play outside.

Keeping Your Home Stylish and Child-Friendly All at Once

We all know that once we welcome our little bundle of joy into the world, our homes will never quite be the same again in many ways. Say goodbye to silent hallways and say hello to the pitter patter of tiny feet across your floors. Something else that needs to change? You have to make sure that absolutely every aspect of your interior is safe and child-friendly. Kids will manage to work their way into near enough anything, climb any surface and will even try to put their fingers into sockets if given a chance. Many people will think that this means they need to compromise on style to keep things soft and comfortable for their child. But this isn’t true. Given, certain children’s accessories are never going to be the peak fashion items of the season, but they are necessary. Baby stair gates are a good example. However, you don’t have to completely forgo the stylish aspects of your home. You just need to be a little savvy with the organisation and your planning.

Future Equestrian

I have observed Bella’s fascination with animals especially with horses when she was about a year old. She saw a real horse during that age at Malagos, Garden Resort and I first blogged about her love for horses last May 2013. I thought she has already forgotten it but when she saw a real horse again in our recent Bukidnon trip, she can’t help but come near it. Her Tita Din told me that she even fed the horse with grasses. I find it a little scary actually but Tita said that Bella was having a great time.

At Home with Jollibee

Being an institution in its industry, Jollibee is already a household name and it has become a part of childhood stories including Bella. If there is one brand that this girl will never forget, I am sure it would be Jollibee. We would often joke around teasing her about being one of the stockholders of Jollibee because aside from being the official pasalubong, it has also been part of Tatay’s  expense every pay day.

I went for some errands yesterday and since Ate Din is busy with her BBQ business, I decided to tag along Bella thinking that I will immediately be back home after paying the bills. My original itinerary was to go to the bank then settle some bills. I could easily do it in a grocery store near our place but since Bella is with me, I opted to go to SM City for a quick mom and daughter bonding time. Bella was so excited thinking that he could play at Zoofari but due to time constraints, I just let her do the Carousel ride. Good thing that she was so happy about it. Oh, simple joys!

One of the Boys

I wonder why my little girl loves to play with her Uncles. I oftentimes think that she would prefer playing with kids her age but surprisingly, she can be considered one of the boys as she would insist on joining the activities of her uncles who are way older that her.

Two of my cousins from Manila stayed with us for a few days while waiting for our Grandmother’s birthday celebration in our province in South Cotabato last week. Their appearance on our Lola’s birthday is part of the surprise so they could not be there in advance. While they are here, we did several bonding activities like swimming in the nearby beach, visiting the park and had dinner during our wedding anniversary.

As of this writing, they are already back in Manila but the short time spent with them are not just fun but super memorable. I am sure Bella would miss his Uncles since she really had a great time with them too.
