Finally! The snow has thawed and temperatures are above 50 degrees in New York City. The kids have all busted down their apartment doors and have run full speed to the nearest playground. Today the sandbox was packed. Even the parents were wearing sunglasses and had their toes in the sand while the little ones fought over last year’s dollar store shovels and pails.

Ale ran wild with the other toddlers suffering from too much Barney and Caillou streaming on Netflix. He could not decide where to go first. The sandbox! The slide! or the swings! To top it off he could now climb the monkey bars. He has grown a lot since our last visit to the park. Taller and stronger. The playground has much more to offer now.

It’s supposed to snow a bit on Monday. No fear. This is March, it comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Spring is right around the corner. Yea!

  1. I’ve always enjoyed the first trip back to the park after a long winter. It’s a good way to measure how much your child has grown and matured over the course of the season. I’m always pleasantly surprised by how much extra freedom can be given, how much further ahead you can allow them to run. I only wish the parks in NYC (I’m in Staten Island, moved from Brooklyn) were less crowded on those first warm days!
