Jordan was really brave at a St. Louis play area called the City Museum. It's hard to explain the spot - it's full of climbing. There are slides, there are balls, there are tunnels. It's kind of scary for a mom... And it was kind of scary for a little girl who has recently shown some signs of risk aversion — which is very new. So when she threw herself into a pit of huge balls, I was impressed with how happy she was from the experience. At some point she got herself to the very back of the pit and demanded I come in and get her.
I said she could do it by herself.
SO... She figured out how to climb to the edge of the ball pit and slowly edged her way out. She didn't whine or complain. Just got out carefully. I am a proud Mom.
