Going to the Park with Granddaddy

 

When I go to the park with my mommy

I slide down the slides

I swing on the swings

She chases me and I let her catch me

I have lots of fun

 

When I go to the park with my granddaddy

We have different rules

I remind him I’m not supposed to get dirty

He tells me, “Mommy won’t mind”

 

When there’s water on the slide I slide thru it anyway

When I go on the swings I go higher than ever before and I’m not scared

Granddaddy pretends to be a monster

When he almost catches me, I pretend to be the monster and chase him

I climb in trees

Mommy doesn’t let me climb in trees

I hang on the rings until I fall

Granddaddy catches me

I pick flowers to bring home to my mommy

 

Two ways I know when I’ve been to the park with granddaddy

I take a long nap

I leave a ring in the bathtub
