WOW! Our little girl just turned two and since she could crawl @ 6 months she has been crazy about playing outside! She loves it! And it doesn't matter what we're doing out there. I try to let her play outside as much as possible. Build muscle and burn energy. LOL

Hats and sunglasses are toys for my kids. I can't get them to keep either on no matter what. It's kind of funny, my mother-in-law was just lecturing me about wearing sunglasses and making hte kids wear them also. My kids seem to.. not care about hats or sun glasses.

Rebecca, thanks for mentioning a hat!!! I am constantly amazed at the amount of kids around here that aren't made to wear hats. I also use sunglasses for my son. He's always worn them so he keeps them on really well.

My kids love being outside, which we encourage by giving them lots of outside toys - they have a trampoline, bikes, sand pit, climbing gym etc. We just have to make sure they keep their hats on and wear lots of sunscreen as it is summer here. They don't let the cold stop them in winter either!

I think it's great!!! Mie also loves the outside, although we are now in a very cold spell. I'd encourage it. Too many kids these days are sitting inside in fromt of a TV!

Both of my kids want to go "bye bye" at all times of the day. They love to play outside and just don't want to take no for an answer.

yes mine is always saying outside she must like to see a different atmosphere of some sort but it has got cold so it's hard to argue with her about not going out too much. lol

Yeah it's normal to want to go outside and play. My daughter would probably play all day if we let her. She also loves to swim as well, but it's too cold right now even in Florida.
