The ups and downs of language acquisition

At playgrounds, my son Samuel’s least favorite piece of equipment is the see-saw. I don’t know why. He loves sliding or pumping his legs on the swings. He’s also a big fan of the round-and-round-we-go thrills of the merry-go-round or the back and forth motion of the bouncy coil spring animals. When he’s tired of all the motion, he plops down in the sandbox and gets to work digging and mixing. But, of all the possible playground equipment, he always veers away from the see-saw when he sees it.
