This photograph is a little misleading. It appears to show Toddler Adams nearing the top of a scramble net at a nearby park. In actual fact, she wasn’t.

Mrs Adams can sometimes get a bit nervous of the kids when they’re playing on swings, slides and the like. Deciding to have a little fun at my wife’s expense, I took this image on my phone and sent it to her at work (I know I know, I’m a mean husband).

The truth is, it was simply taken from a clever angle. Toddler Adams was no more than a few centimetres off the ground. My wife, who is used to my cruel sense of humour, quickly realised this was all a big wind up.

With the days getting longer and slightly warmer, I’m really looking forward to making after-school visits to the park a regular occurrence. Although it was a bit cold, we went to the park yesterday after the school run and the kids had a great time (the park we went to yesterday doesn’t have a scramble net so no opportunities for a wind up).

    Nice, John (on scaring your Mrs!). Time in the playground is always magic for them. Which reminds me, that’s where we’re heading this morning!

    Has your wife forgiven you yet? 😉 I’d definitely have a heart-attack if my husband sent me a photo like that! #CountryKids.

  3. This sounds like a great idea although I’d only get away with scaring my Mrs once.
    I recall the playgrounds of my childhood. Even if you were a few centimetres off the ground they were still a certified death-trap.

  4. What a mean trick to play, has she forgiven you for your trickery? After school park trip seem to be on the cards for many people as we slowly start to spring in the air. I bet your lot are all super excited at the prospect. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  5. I can’t wait for Spring and longer days. My husband was forever having ‘adventures’ with my daughter apparently and is only now owning up to them (she’s 8!) I hope your wife forgave the trick?
