Wordless Wednesday — More than one way down a slide…

by Janice


Olivia — there’s more than one way down a slide!

Olivia is enjoying the playground at Susan’s townhouse complex. It is small – but then again, so is she!

We are blessed to have a few different playspaces all within walking distance of our homes. As moms we know how important playgrounds are for kids and so we’re helping a charity organization called Kaboom find out what communities do not have enough playspaces.

You can help too. It is so easy… and it’s a great way to support a charity without having to open your wallet! For every playspace our team submits, Julianne Hough will donate $1 to FirstBook.org.

Join the 5 Minutes for Mom Kaboom Team and tell their website where your local play spaces are. Team members who submit the most spaces will be featured here at 5 Minutes for Mom.

Also you can create a play-inspired post on your blog and show it off by signing the Mr. Linky over at this post by our 5 Minutes for Mom Kaboom Team’s head cheerleader, Kristin or sign it over on our Kaboom Team Page. Pledge your support of the 5 Minutes for Mom Kaboom Team and visit the other team members posts.

She is such a pretty little girl. I’m glad to see she didn’t bonk her little head.


2 Joy April 28, 2009 at 11:47 pm

I love the look on Olivia’s face!!! Too cute!

My daughter is afraid of nothing…except for the slide. Maybe I should just let her go head first. It seems to be more her speed anyways.

Happy WW ya’ll!
