Going Up?

09 May

I must apologize for my camera which seems to not be responding to the flash. I took this picture about five times and they all came out dark.

Honey? I need a new camera.

Sadie has become quite the climber lately.  She goes all the way across on the monkey bars, climbs on top of tube slides, the kitchen counters, trees…. really anything that will get her off the ground.  She doesn’t always feel comfortable getting herself down but she does love going up!

She showed us this new skill this morning.  Of course, the most impressive climbs (her head was touching the arch) were not caught on camera but this was really wild to watch.  If I’m stuck on a deserted island, I want it to be with Sadie so I can have fresh coconut milk as desired.

Have I thought about telling her to ‘get down’?  I’m about to write a post about suppressing, redirecting, and negating our children’s desires over at Humans Being.

    Very cool, Sadie. I used to do that when I was little too. It kinda annoyed my mom, though.

    You rock, Sadie!!! I’m definitely picking you as my travel buddy next time I’m heading toward any deserted islands!! Love you, little monkey!!

    Ah, yes, Sarah — those “dreaded possibilities” . . . nasty buggers always try to get in the way of the fun. 🙂

    Wow! I’m impressed. Great climbing skills!

    Sarah, you’ve got me thinking on that “no” word–definitely oppressive. My wife and I are working on saying it less and less to our son Aidan (6). It’s a tough one to let go of, but we’re trying. It feels better to say, yes. Thanks for sharing…

    Fun! That is EXACTLY how my oldest climbs the counter/fridge to get to stuff on top (we don’t put things up there to keep them away from anyone, but only so much counterspace and so stuff is up there out of the way). He then straddles in almost splits with foot on counter and foot on fridge. He can get really high! 🙂

    Love the video.
