Trampoline Sword Fight
That trampoline has been a wonderful investment. Zaya has spent literally hours and hours jumping around on it. He uses it as a place where he can be alone and imagine while also moving around. Before we had the trampoline, he just walked and skipped around the house imagining, but the trampoline adds that little extra bit of fun.
Mim likes it when there are other children to play with. She wants to play games, have contests, or, apparently, fight with swords.
Isn't it strange that my shy child is an extrovert and the boy who never met a stranger is an introvert? I would never have thought that was possible before I had children.
But I digress. I will probably have to go make them stop sometime soon. The trick is to find just the right moment when they've had lots of fun, but no one has actually been hurt yet. It's a fine and delicate balance.
And if you're unsure, yes, Mim is wearing a Davy Crockett hat. No, I don't know why. Do you need a reason to wear a coon-skin hat?
