So what are you little ones favourite things/places?

My little man who is 3.5 in the past 6 weeks has developed a fondness of a park bench! We walk past about 10 on our way to daycare, but there is one on particular that he has taken a shine too! On the days that he goes to daycare we have to stop as he sits on his “favourite bench”. He the lies down on it and peeks through the wooden slates and loves it if I put my phone underneath and he can see his reflection.
When I asked him “why is this your favourite?” He replied ” it’s my favourite cause it’s interesting!”
So this made me think about his bench. It’s on a side street, it’s under cover and not on the edge of the road like all the others- the street gets traffic from 3 directions and lots of people pass by.
Best of all we spend a couple of minutes at his favourite bench and it makes him happy! How wonderful that something so simple makes him happy !
