There are two main reasons why we need, I repeat, NEED some kind of swing set / climbing apparatus in my back garden. Very soon.
1) My son has taken to sliding backwards down the handle bar of his wagon.
Poor, deprived kid.
"Look Mama!" He says, showing me his moves.
And then, "Wheeeee!" as he goes down the handle bar and lands on the ground.
2) The park is a disaster zone right now.
The problem: two highly energetic kids at different developmental stages, running in opposite directions towards potentially dangerous climbing frames and things that spin around at eighty miles per hour, and one mother with rapidly-graying hair and a slightly overactive imagination, chasing after both kids with rising blood pressure, and with only two arms and one very hoarse voice.
I definitely feel a swing set coming our way.
