Back Flips Off The Couch?!?!?!
Today she topped that.
She was sitting next to me (all 21 months of her) and she got mad. Really mad. Because she realized, for the very first time, that she hasn't nursed in 6 days and is officially "weaned."
She decided to throw a tantrum, and before I could reach her she did that back arch thing that toddlers to. It turned into a back flip, off of our couch. I lunged and managed to grab her little hand which did absolutely nothing since her arm was about the length of the distance to the ground (and after the flip I was just thankful her shoulder wasn't dislocated).
I held my breath as Paul rushed over and Mae Bae... jumped up with a smile. Her head hadn't even touched the ground.
I hope she doesn't give back flips off the couch another try anytime soon!
But I can't help but wonder what her next dare-devil stunt will be.
