We went to the park this weekend, and Max did soooo amazing! I couldn't believe it! I have been introducing him to slides this past month (playground and at school) and today he decided to do it all by himself! I was squealing with pride and excitement!
I sat him at the top and he would grab the sides. I was at the bottom cheering "Go Max Go" and he would let go and slide all the way down! Of course sometimes it didn't go perfectly, but what I loved the most was that he was willing to let go without my help! This kiddo has no fear!
* What's funny though is that here is this kiddo who is so strong and brave. Yet when I placed him in a standing position on the mulch ground cover, he was not happy at all and the bravery was long gone. He absolutely refused for his feet (with socks and hard sole shoes) to touch the ground. These sensory issues are crazy. (We are starting a new therapy intervention to assist with that.) For now, we will celebrate his victory with the slide! GO MAX GO!
Wooo hooo! I'm ready to do it again Mommy, are you? :)
