Bigfoot has been trying to climb up a level on this jungle gym since he saw some older neighborhood kids having their fair share of fun climbing to their little hearts desire. He spent some time at the slides, running like a cheetah, throwing pebbles at the giant slide, and swinging. Eventually he made his way to his little mountain.
But then, you could just see his little brain churning. Trying to problem solve his way up the bars of fun.
Little brother found his way over too. Like I always find myself saying these days, Brother see, brother do.
After some more trial and error, things started to click. Grasps had more purpose and foot placement was more intentional.
Trial and error. On he went.
Till something happened!
He did it!
And, not only did he climb up level numero uno of the jungle gym, his dismount was pretty fantastic.
And, seeing the joy, pride, and excitement in his little face was worth every second! So glad I caught this new little skill on my phone camera!
I could have watched you climb up and down all day. You were amazing, brave, adventurous, and quite the little problem-solver. While you were climbing and dismounting there was always a slight hint of panic mixed with exhilaration that could be seen in your eyes. So glad you were able to enjoy the ride of accomplishing this little feat. This is what his non-panic/disbelief/extremely excited look was after the very first time he dismounted. Submitting this gem of a moment for Theme Thursday over at Cari's.
Well done my my little chango! Well done.
