SO as you know I have three fabulous and adorable children who are always sweet, loving and do anything their mommy asks, the first time. They also tend to be somewhat strong willed. As in they do what i say if its what they want to do and when they want to do it. It truly depends on the day which analysis of my children is more accurate. But the strong willed is always true. Stubborn, pig headed, hard headed ... the descriptions can go on and on. I have no idea where they got this from! Just because both of their parents are steadfast and immovable in whatever they have an opinion on doesn't mean my kids are gonna be like that does it? Well lets just hope they turn out to be steadfast and immovable in their faith in the Saviour and not just in how much TV they think they should watch.
Besides being somewhat single minded my sweet husband is also very creative and my children benefit greatly from it. He is always making them cool stuff in the yard out of snow, wood, pvc and whatever else he has available. He also makes them fun inside toys. I always have a swing hanging from my ceiling in the basement. It is an unfinished roof so we have anything from a normal kids swing to a spider web to rings to a trapeze swinging bar. Right now we have a swinging trapeze bar. Let me preface this by saying we have never had a serious injury with our creations. Bonks and bruises on occasion but usually the only result is fantastic upper body strength and agility.
Now what do the two have in common? Well my Sweet Melia was swinging on the trapeze bar and her hands slipped so she flung herself off the swing at the wall hitting head first. She cried for a little while about the bump but is fine. The wall on the other hand...
Melia vs. Wall
Somewhat hard headed? I think so!!!!
