Around the neighborhood: The playground

The elementary school is only a block from our house, and I can tell you, Silas is digging having a playground so nearby.

It has a REALLY big slide!
And a fireman ladder (at least, that's what Silas calls it):
But there's plenty of fun to be had at home too. Today was a perfect day for lawn mowing:
Every day we get a bit more settled, although our den is still pretty much floor to ceiling boxes of books. Silas is adjusting, but the transition hasn't been the easiest. He has been downright difficult lately, but it's hard to say how much of his behavior can be contributed to the changes brought by moving, or just by the fact that he is a typical three year-old. Whatever the cause, I think it's safe to say that we are hoping he moves past this stubborn, whiny, contradictory phase ASAP. Any ideas on how to make him the perfect agreeable, obedient child overnight?

Sorry that I cant help ypu with your little man. He sounds a lot like my almost tree little man. I have been told that they will just grow out of it one day. So I am just waiting for that one day.

I've heard it said that Mother-in-laws should NEVER give advice--therefore, just enjoy the miracle Silas is.Everyday playground adventures may be part of the answer! Love, Grandma G.
