We turned nature detectives on our walk this afternoon. Armed with a jumbo magnifying glass my mindee loved looking at all the bulbs poking up through the soil, the berries on the bushes and the textures and sounds of various flora and fauna. We heard the sheep in the field go “baa!”. “I am the detective, I’m looking for clues” he exclaimed as we picked up some bits to add to our nature tray once back home.
Like us, it’s good for the babies to get fresh air too, we walked up to Aston Potteries, unfortunately at this time of the year their usually magnificent flower displays have all died down. My 9 month old mindee fell asleep peacefully in the buggy on the walk, I transferred her into the cot when we got back home for a nice peaceful afternoon nap.
