It amuses me to think about how skittish and scared we were to let Lee try anything. It has not been the same way for KW. It can't be. She has an older brother whom she watches. She is on top of things before I know it - the swing set, the bathroom counter, the top of the stairs. To think that we were nervous about Lee when we moved in this house a year ago!
Letting him "go" has helped me let her go. She gets to try things on average one and a half years earlier than he did. Like the bouncy place.
We got rained out of our field trip with the homeschool group last week, so we met up at the bouncy place. The first time KW did the slide, I went with her. The second time, Lee went behind her to make sure she didn't fall. Then, she was off and running. She went splat on her face almost every time, and loved it!
