see-saw margery daw (sold her bed and lay upon straw)
This summer we discovered a playground in town that was introduced to us as the 'secret playground' because you can't see it from the street and wouldn't know it was there.
Secret playground has a see saw and I always get this nursery rhyme stuck in my head while we are there because the kids are obsessed with the see-saw. I don't know how popular see-saws are anymore because we have been to a lot of playgrounds and this is the only playground I've found with one. We actually do know the name of the playground but of course it's more fun to call it secret or see-saw playground.
In case you are worried there is an adult right outside the frame but Ms.S holds on really well and her brother sort of takes it easy on her.
Oh here he is....
S cries when we take her off.
Speaking of safety what she isn't safe around is the blackberry bushes. The girl could just stand there and eat all day and be happy. Okay she might need some pizza too.The other day she tripped trying to get one and cut her forehead. I almost died at the sight of all the blood but she is fine.
Some unexpected information found here. The things one learns when doing blog posts.
Oh, and I made that skirt which she is wearing here. It's a rich chocolate brown corduroy with light blue pin dots.
It's going to be so good with tights and stuff.
