It's so big....you two are so little

I mean it looks big to me...what must it look like to you?!!. It lords over all of the rest of the playground.....with its gyrating and swirling and dipping and do-ing. The Big Slide. The Big One. And that's exactly what both of you wanted. I woulda been happy with one of the little side "job-bee slides"....the tee-nine-eee ones that spill over the bottom of the playground extravaganza jungle. But nope....once you both made it up that first pair of stairs and then bounded over to the second stairs (gaining confidence...gaining confidence.....) then ran across the cat-walk....then jumped all over the third landing...then..then...you had a choice. Do ya go low and head for the "baby" slides or are ya gonna aim high and head for the Big Kahuna? (Like when I snowski, do you take the Blue Diamond down or do you go for the the Black Diamond....?) You both (pretty much exactly same timing...) looked at that last set of stairs....looked at each other....looked back at the stairs and well, that's "all she wrote"....(sidebar note: they never looked at me...nah, they didn't need me...) You both fought each other to get to the top, you plopped your little "no-butt" behinds down and there you went.....sliding-all-the-way-down....So...then...then...because I was going solo that day sans Ed, I managed to effectively clone myself to get coverage to be at the top of the slide when you started down and then at the bottom of the slide to greet you. And....that I did....Must of been quite the show on the playground but who cares?!!



Then, of course, you both immediately signed and half-spoke to me very very insistently..."a'gin...a'gin"....We did it again...16 times again, that is. (whoo-hoo)

I was so inordinately phenomenally amazed and proud of you two monkeys that I forced all of us to go back later that evening (with Ed this time) so we could take pictures of your prowesses....



Hugs to all,
cindy

Oh, here I was so excited cuz I thought I was first. Dang if Kim didn't beat me! *grin*..... You are one lucky little lady to have such adorably cute little girls who are more angelic than the saint whatshisname... Cindy, you are more than blessed. You have the best dh and now you have the most perfect babies ever. They were meant only for you.

On another note sweetie.... how does tomorrow sound? Sorry about tonight. We met another family in the neighborhood who just returned from China with their beautiful little Jillian. She is just 24 months old. Cute!
