I Have Probably told Him This Once or Twice...

Today was one of those really nice winter days that could best be described as "crisp". So after school I let Tucker play on the playground for a few minutes. He was climbing a dinosaur monkey-bar thing and I told him to be careful (the last time he played, his friend Colby slipped and hurt his..ahem,manly parts). Tucker's response: "Well he's not a monkey like me! I can grip and climb better than anyone!"

I have called him Monkey Boy for as long as I can remember because he has always climbed everything! (Apparently, it runs in the family...my mom told me when I was a toddler, I used to climb the shelves in the doctors office and grocery stores. Thankfully, I outgrew it!) Tucker, however, is still going strong!

Several years ago my daughter climbed a ladder in our barn, got to the top where I was and I almost peed my pants when I saw her standing there... she was 2.

It seems as if children are born without fear, but great climbing skills!

So cute! He has a lot of confidence and that probably makes him more sturdy and less likely to fall.

He pretty much has no fear which is good for him and bad for me!
