Then he asks me. "would you be scared?" I would be terrified, but really because of that horrific scene in the awful movie "Legion" where the Granny turns into a demon and crawls across the ceiling. Thanks for the imagery, Munchkin!
This got me thinking about what little high energy daredevils I have on my hands. The two of them fly across the family room, jumping from sofa to love seat, and even my 16 month old is figuring out somersaults on his own. They slide down the tallest slide at the playground without a fear. The next thing I know, I will have the fire department here pulling them down from the roof!
I wonder if it is a "boy" thing, or just my boys. Other parents keep telling me that it's just in their nature to be so energetic and fearless. I think there is some truth to it. When we have playdates with little girls I am amazed at the difference. Even Mommy J has told me that if they have another kid, and it is a boy, she won't be able to keep up!
Then again, the last time Mommy J's daughter was here, she was climbing up the outside of the stairs, holding onto the spindles. Maybe if I have a girls someday, she will be the one hanging from the chandelier.
