Just an average day with my monkey

My three year old boy is a monkey (for more proof of this fact, you can look here) and he was just up to his normal monkey antics the other day while I sat near by and photographed it for posterity.

Now you other mothers out there who don't have boys, don't judge me...you just wait and see what your boy would do given a pile of couch cushions and some free time:)

When I see my little man climbing up things, scaling walls or some such adventure, I just sit back and relax and let nature run it's course. I know that gravity will most likely win and that there will be bumps and bruises in our future, but man, he sure enjoys the experimentation process:)

Now you'll never find pictures of my sweet Kyla doing anything like this at this age, I was a bit more cautious (Hey now, stop that laughing) and didn't let her venture out of my comfort zone much. With my second kiddo, and a boy at that, well, life's a bit different:)

Because you just can't stop the pursuit of knowledge, that's what I tell myself. Yes, he is covered in bruises most of the time and yes, our owie ice packs wear out from the constant use, but he has an amazing concept of his body and his own physical limits. That whole figuring out gravity issue will come with time I'm sure:)

So here's to ice packs and snuggles, climbing trees and running on gravel, pokey sticks and bugs. Here's to living life to the fullest!

oh I'm sooo glad to hear I'm not the only one! My boys do the exact same thing~their favorite is to get all the couch cushins & pillows, pile them high and slide down or somersaut down from the back of the couch onto the floor. I never thought I'd be one of "those" moms, but alas, I never thought I'd have 2 super duper busy boys either. I hear ya friend, I hear ya. It definitely is just a part of them. Thanks for sharing!
