While we’re on the subject of the differences between the boys…
Remember this little video I put together a few years ago? (Man, it still cracks me up to watch that.) Well, yesterday we went to a different park in our neighborhood. One with monkey bars.
Miles was ready to tackle them. First things first. Mommy had to hold him up while he made his way down the bars. But I could not let go.
After a few minutes of that, he was ready to hang from a bar. So I held up up, then gradually let go so he was holding on by himself. But he was scared to fall, so I grabbed him again and gently brought him down to Earth.
When he saw that it wasn’t too far down, he was ready to drop to the ground himself. He did that approximately one million times.
And then he saw Millie going across the monkey bars, and since he is Millie’s biggest fan, decided he was going to try that too.
And wouldn’t you know, he made his way across the monkey bars all by himself? It took him many, many tries, and many falls, but he didn’t give up until he did it.
I was so proud I thought I would burst.
Meanwhile, Linus made it to “hanging from the bar and dropping”, and Oliver wouldn’t let me let go of him.
So, just like the video from 2010, Miles was Mr. Adventure, Linus was happy to do whatever, with no worries whatsoever, and Oliver was, as before, extremely cautious.
Yep, some things never change!
