Little Miss is feeling better today – finally! In fact, she was doing her usual climbing and jumping this morning. We have a mini-jumper, which is basically a small square trampoline that has a curved handle in front for children to hold onto when they’re jumping.
Unless you’re Little Miss. Today, she was using the handle as a gym bar to do flips on. I walked in to see her just about hit her head on the wall and she was going over. I suggested that she move the mini-jumper away from the wall, and shockingly she agreed. Nicely, even.
Me: And Little Miss, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to do flips on the mini-jumper unless there’s an adult here to watch you.
Little Miss: Ok.
Me: That means you need to have a mommy or a daddy or a grandma or a grandpa in the room with you if you want to do flips. Do you understand.
Little Miss: Or an aunt.
Me: Well, yes. If Auntie Megan is here, she can watch you, too.
Little Miss: Yep, but nooooooooooot a bur-gur-lur.
Me: Well, no. No, you wouldn’t want to be doing flips on the mini-jumper if a burglar were in the house. You’re right.
Where she gets these ideas, I just don’t know.
