So a while back I gave an example of why I call my kids monkeys. These last couple of days I’ve been reminded once again. I thought I would share some of these little reminders so everyone could experience.
Exhibit A: Mason scratches his leg.
As with most injuries, it seems like they just don’t capture the same on camera. But the idea is there. Mason likes to do very crazy things on his bike. He does wheelies, rides down front porch steps, jumps curbs, jumps ramps (sometimes putting objects on one side to jump over) & tries to balance along the curb on his bike. Needless to say he’s had a few accidents. His latest happend two days ago. The funny thing about him is that I never even knew this crash happened until he was done playing for the night. He said to me, “Mom, I fell down on my bike and look what happened.” I asked him when it happened and he replied, “Oh, a little while ago.” Either he’s really tough or he just loves to play so much he couldn’t be bothered to take care of it. Probably a little of both.
Exhibit B: Milo rolls
This is probably one of the funniest things I’ve ever captured on video. Milo is always the comedian and I don’t think he even realizes it, which makes it all the more hilarious. What made it more funny was the fact that this was the third time it had happened. The first two times I wasn’t ready for it, but by the third time I thought I’d get the camera out just in case. I fully expected that after two times down the hill Milo would have rememebered what had happened and try to prevent it. Well, that’s Milo for you – he’s just thinking of the moment at hand, so carefree and happy all the time. (and to clarify – this video was a complete accident on Milo’s part, all he meant to do was run down the hill)
[unfortunately, I cannot find a way to move the video from blogger to wordpress, so you’ll just have to use your imagination and believe me that it is awesome to watch a child run so fast down a hill he does a no-handed forward roll]
