Spring has finally arrived (at least for a little while), and the joy of being able to get outside has certainly overcome your children. If they’re old enough to know what’s waiting for them right on the other side of that door, then they’re old enough to be tugging at your sleeve, begging to head out the door just as soon as the sun peeks over the horizon.
“Mommy, can we go outside now?”
“Mommy, I want to play!”
“Mommy, I want to go outside!”
For older kids, you can just open the door and get out of the way, because they’re going out whether you want them to or not—but what about your littlest ones? Do they get any real benefit out of being outdoors?
