I'll tell you why there is no better way to play with your kids than using a swing.
Jane is actually pretty good at using a non-kiddie swing.
They don't run away from you.
It's really easy to make them laugh.
You can make a game out of it.
I would swing them and they would try to eat the Teddy Graham from my fingers on the up swing. After the Teddy Grahams were gone Hannah lost her flip-flop so I was trying to put her flip-flop back on while she was swinging. This caused an outpouring of laughter on all accounts. I was about to take a picture of this until Jane fell out of the swing.
Then we reversed roles and I was swinging and trying to get the grahams from Hannah. Jane was recovering in the stroller.
