In keeping with my title of Meanest Mommy Ever, I introduced Parker to a stroll behind walker yesterday.
He was less than thrilled.
There were tears of frustration. Yet I insisted that he keep trying.
Have you ever seen a more terrifying case of scrawny chicken legs? Yet another reason why this child needs to get up and use those legs.
Parker spent most of this experience standing over the walker hoping to be rescued from the Meanest Mommy Ever.
Alas, there was nobody to hear his pleas.
And upon this realization he braced himself and stepped forward. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of him taking that step. I was too afraid that he would fall on his butt. And we don’t get the okay for that from his surgeon until Tuesday.
So you will just have to use your imagination to see the look of pure joy on Parker’s face when he realized that Yes! he could take a step forward.
All it took was a little bit of faith in himself . And a wee little push from the Meanest Mommy Ever.
