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.
