To Climb A Tree

That was what he wanted to do one morning last week.

We were out on the grounds that morning. We just had to take advantage of the glorious sunshine and fresh air after days of being held hostage by fever and rains at home. It was then a really bright day for us. 🙂

So there he was whirling around the play grounds when he suddenly stopped, pointed pass me and said, “Tree. Taas sa tree.” He wanted to climb the small tree just like the kids did when we first stepped on the playgrounds.

Without much thought, I obliged to his request. Children actually climbing real trees in this cyber age… Priceless. Thank God the property developer of the condominium community we currently live in is generous with open spaces, greens and trees. 🙂

So there, I propped him up the stone at the foot of the tree.


But I guess there will be better days to climb as he only managed this one big step


Some other day, LC. Maybe when you’re a little more able 😉


Oh how I wish there will be a lot of trees to where we will settle permanently. And of course, more trees for the coming generations… 🙂

    Ang saya! It’s such a welcome thought to have our kids enjoy the outdoors rather than tablets, phones and toys. I hope our boys get to climb trees together (although lucas is much smaller pa)

  2. I guess nature is the best playground ever for our kids. Nothing beat that! Hoping to meet you soon and LC in our grand playdate!

    BTW, I’ve got an award for you waiting in my blog. 🙂

  3. In the advent of the new technology we as parents should really encourage our kids to play outdoors…According to my Optometrist friend madami daw kids na malabo na ang mata, mas madami pa daw kaysa sa generation ng 30s pataas.
