The play area isn’t always on this side of the rosa rugosa. When it is, there is a glimpse into the playtime of Little Gal and The Boy Next Door. Yesterday they spent most of their time swinging, sliding, and twisting on the rings of the gym set in the backyard. Little Gal’s daddy and granddad had built the gym for her last summer. She and BND have been playing on it, even during the winter, with snow on the ground, ever since.
At one point, at the sliding board, there was a display of the my turn/your turn conflict. Who was in the right wasn’t easy to determine, but Little Gal’s arms were crossed, and BND maintained control of the board until he was good and ready to relinquish his rights to a finger wagging female.
