Despite the fact it’s been pretty hot today we decided to take Maya for a short trip to the playground. It didn’t take long to realize she was irritated by the heat. The slide was warm to the touch so she only slid down a couple of times. She did insist that head first was the way to go.
Even though she didn’t like the heat, she made it clear that she disliked the particular sippy cup we brought along even more. Rather than drink the ice cold water in the cup she thought it would be amusing to throw it a couple of times in protest.

I put my arms down toward her and she decided it was OK to get back up if I was willing to carry her. She squeezed me tight around the neck the rest of the way home. Sometimes the satisfaction of getting what you want is even more fun than going down a slide.
