Race Car Driver or Trapeze Artist?
By Peter Buckingham on Dec 12, 2008
It seems that Ally has a bit of the daredevil in him. It seems that anything that involves a steering wheel or a swing are the only things that will sate him (that or some danger related activity). I guess when he gets a little bigger I'll take him along to the climbing gym. He seems to enjoy standing up on the high, narrow window sill (I'm actually there to watch him, no Michael Jackson shennanigans going on about holding my son out a window).
Whenever we head to the park Alasdair heads straight for the swings and wants to pushed for hours (well not quite, but a long time). If I attempt to take him out he screams like I'm poking him with a sharp stick. Sometimes I can distract him with a wheel:
However, what really gets him going is driving the car. Whenever we head down he heads straight to the driver's side door. He seems to know where everything is, so far he hasn't figured out where the keys go, it's probably only a matter of time ;-)
You are right if you think that this is just a gratuitous attempt to put up photos of my son because I think he's awesome.
