Experience comes with scraps & bruises

My cautious & timid Shae has become my Adventurous & DARING Shae. Sometimes NOT the best combination. He is so anxious to be like his big sisters & try NEW things that they haven't done.

Well of course the time that he can actually do something bigger & better than his sisters....he GETS BONKED.

So visiting with Tutu & Grandpa at the Pool, everyone was jumping into the pool...doing all sorts of fun kicks & crazy body twists. Well Shae being creative decides to do a full front flip into the pool....AND.....he does GREAT! He clears the step that is just below him. He continues to do it over & over again...but he slowly is getting closer & closer to that step. After many successes, he actually flips forward & on his way up out of the water he barely scraps his forehead on THAT step. He rests, we caution him to make sure he jumps out FAR, he listens for a bit.

THEN out of nowhere we look over at him, he is in the water & as he comes up he SCRAPS the LEDGE of the step REALLY BAD. He is all scrapped up & bloody. We cleaned him up good...before taking pictures of course. And soon after an employee of the pool came over & asked if we wanted to write a statement. We declined, but This employee was pretty persistent it was like he was asking him to sue them. SO FUnny...well I guess not on Shae's part.

Well WISDOM comes with experience & that came with a bunch of scraps & bruises.
