For our Monday off, we took the little guy to a boat park in the marina. It was the first time he had ever seen boats, so he just kept pointing them out and wanting to peer below at the water. When we had to leave the first stop we stayed because it got too cold, he cried and fussed even after he got inside the car. It wasn’t until we went to another boat park (that was warmer!) did he calm down.
I ordered three books about boats from the library so that he associates what he saw with the word “boat.” I want to take him to places that will offer him new senses and experiences.
