It's Saturday! Time for a Dear Daniel letter
Can you please tell me where you're going?! What is this new thing you're doing when we go to the playground? Usually it's just a matter of choosing what area you want to play in. It's funny to watch you check out the different areas to see what happening. Are you really trying to decide if you should join that group of kids by the slide or swings? Maybe you are. I'm not sure. Eventually you'll decide and off you go to play till it's time to go.
But recently I've noticed you like to run off to seek some adventure in another play area without telling me! I've had many a panicking moment to see you running AWAY from where I JUST left you. Thankfully I'm only a few feet away but still. Not all playground are as open as the one where we live.
Just yesterday you left one area to go exploring by the adult area. Argh! As I ran after you...gosh you're fast...you disappeared around the corner of a building. You disappeared! I had to run in the opposite direction to intercept you. My heart prayed that no one grabbed you along the way at some secret door. Thankfully I made around the corner in time to "catch" you.
Now what was behind that little moment of you "adventuring" off on your own? You wanted to see the basketball game happening in the adult area! *faints*
Love you always,
