Brave New Girl






















Every day it's increasingly apparent that Maggie is becoming more of a child and less of a baby. On Saturday at the church carnival there was a standard bounce house (which as usual she thought was pretty rad) and some sort of crazy bounce obstacle course with an inflatable climbing wall/ladder and slide at the end. The thought never occurred to me to let Maggie play on such a big kid structure. Chad, on the other hand, was all about letting Maggie explore it. So I let them do their thing and I avoided the area, not wanting to see my baby fall 15 feet to the ground. Turns out she's no longer the baby girl I thought she was. After I got some guts I wandered over to them and saw our child climb and slide with the big kids. And every time she ended up totally OK. Here's video overkill of the slide. She did make it up the ladder and down the slide quite a few times, but unfortunately the only time Chad taped her heading up the ladder was when she fell. Anyway, watch for her climbing up in the first video, and in the other two videos you'll see her sliding down on the left-hand side.
