Little Monkey Bizness!
I can't imagine who I might be talking about.
Little Monkey Bizness.
When I asked if she wanted to go to Monkey Bizness, her reply was "ooh, ooh, ahh, ahh!"
I took it as a "yes."
She particularly enjoyed this climbing thing full of little hiding areas, platforms, and steering wheels.
It helped that there were other adults there chatting who didn't mind me wandering in and out of their conversations as I followed my little one around. I tried not to hover but Lois was the youngest one there and needed the most supervision.
The other adults agreed, which was nice. I don't need validation from other people that I'm being a good parent but it's nice to hear other people say we're doing a good job and that I'm not being overprotective, just regular protective, which is good. I don't want to be a helicopter parent, constantly hovering.
At the same time, I don't want her falling off the top of something because I wasn't there to catch her.
It's a difficult balance, sometimes.
