Jake is now at that age when he enjoys the company of playmates. However, seeing how he just grabs some toys or fakes a cry to get his way with his nanny or brothers, we feel that he needs to spend some time being with kids his age in order for him to polish on his socializing skills, if you could call it that. Bringing him to this pseudo-daycare slash pre-school is something we need to do to expose him to his age group. However, this comes with a price. We have to be creative without breaking the budget. After all, the exercise is supposed to be a learning activity and fun time for him.
This afternoon, after spending just an hour of running, shooting hoops, riding cars, planes and wading in the swim ball at “My Playroom” in Ayala Center, Jake was hesitant to come out. He looked like he hasn’t had enough and seemed like he could still spend a longer time there. Not even the sour cream flavored French fries, which I tried to bribe him with, worked. Haha!
It took a bit of force (hehehe) and sleight of hand tricks for him not to realize that he was quickly whisked out of his wonderland. At least that was what we thought.
Me: Jake, let’s change into a nice clean shirt, ok?
Me: Why not???
Bwahahaha! Such a wisecrack from Jake who’s only 1 year and 11 months…
