My boy the swinger



I'll try not to make a big deal out of this. I'll try not to get all mushy and dramatic. I won't pretend this milestone is as big as a graduation, or a homerun in the final inning of a state championship, or your daughter's wedding.

But.

Last week Mickey swung himself on a park swing. HIMSELF. For years I've heard non-stop: "Push me Mamma, higher!! To the trees! I want to touch that cloud! Push me! Push me higher!"

But last week I only pushed him one time and 15 minutes he was still going strong. Poor woman with her child next to me must have thought I was getting ready to throw him a party. Or cry.

Guess it's a little too late on that making a big deal thing...

Mastering the swing is a big deal! None of mine were that young when they "got" it. Or maybe they were just lazy. Anyway, you've got one down, one to go.

MLS, or Aunt M or whatever I call myself these days...

My Middle just learned how to "pump" too! He's so proud.
