I remember last Christmas he was too timid to climb on the raised playground at W
oodbine Center. This weekend he just went for it. He climbed 20ft to the top (safety nets everywhere) and ran around with
other kids. The one thing he stayed away from was the spiral tube slide. That was my fault because when he was a about a year and a half I placed him down pretty steep spiral slide at the Bronx Zoo. I suspect he tumbled head first in the the slide and he wasn't a happy camper when he got to the bottom. Since then he's been pretty cold towards any type of slide. I know he's not scared of too many things, in fact this weekend he diving head first in the the pool.
After about an hour and with Mommy at the top encouraging him to go (an probably seeing other kids go down as well) he did us proud and slid down. Not once, but many more times :-) Makes me really proud of my little guy.
