Slinging in the Summertime

My daughter is 14 months old now. I can’t believe how the time is flying by. Her grandpa and dad built her a sandbox yesterday out of some scrap wood in the backyard. She is just the right age for this. She’s just past putting everything in her mouth, and at the age where she’s exploring everything with her other senses – her hands, eyes and ears notice everything! She’s loving the feel of the sand between her toes. It might be a few more weeks before she’s building sand castles, but in the meantime she loves digging in the sand and moving it around between her fingers.

We tested out our new Hotslings water sling today. What fun!! I was able to enjoy a quick dip in our pool while Rayne was held on by the mesh water sling. She had such a blast! We are within a short biking distance from a beach on Lake Simcoe. We’ll be biking to the beach so she can play in the sand and water there, as well. This sling makes it so much easier trying to hold onto a wiggly, wet, soon-to-be toddler and the fabric is so light and comfortable on me. We spent a lot of time at Lawrencetown Beach when we lived in Nova Scotia, as well as the many tiny beaches that are found all over the Halifax Regional Municipality, and this sling sure would have come in handy last summer. In any case, we’ll be getting a lot of use out of our water sling this year!

I LOVE the turquoise colour. Don’t you think it just screams summer?
