This is what a good dad looks like. :)


His son is in the “blue ghost” aka body sock, and dad is sooo scared! 🙂 Not the blue ghost!!!!

I love body socks for imaginative exploration as well as proprioception/giving the child a better sense of their own body in space by providing a lot of input. In this case he was crouched down, but when he stands up, it fits tightly against him. If you use one, follow all safety precautions including removing tripping hazards, ensuring he can breathe comfortably, etc etc. (The opening of the sock is on the side facing away from the camera and he had ducked into it.)
