So what's a girl to do with a day off this close to Christmas? Why help Mommy shop at the mall, of course, where she can also ride the carousel and blow allowance money on an indoor bungee-jumpy-thingy.
Back in October, she did the jumper at the fair and could never figure out how to do a front flip. Turns out that because of the kind of harness they rig you in (and the fact that she is a little bit of a thing) she could never had done a front flip.
This time she decided to do the next best thing.
I love that my kid trusts me and will try just about anything new, even if she is scared or nervous. As she was getting strapped in she asked if I thought she could do a back flip and I told her that of course she could, all she had to do was get up high and throw her legs over her head.
And she did!
