The Old Saying...

Ya'll know the old adage your parents parroted to you as a youth? It goes something like this..."if your ______ told you to jump off a _____ would you do it?" The correct answer here is "No! Of course not!". Hmmm...if your name happens to be Gavin and we filled in the blanks with "older brother" and "2nd story bedroom window sill" the answer would be "Yes, I would and did. Ninjas can jump that far." *sigh* His poor guardian angels work over-time keeping that kid out of the ER.

You must have the same guardian angels as we do. Cole climbed up a ladder onto our garage roof one day! He was only 18 months!

So glad he's okay!

Eeek! Really, though, why am I not surprised? OF COURSE Gavin thought he could jump out of windows. He is a ninja, after all, you know.

Oh me. I'm constantly baffled by how fearless boys are. Glad he is okay. And this officially means your boys and my boys could never be in the same room together... Between Sam thinking he can walk up walls, and down the sides of buildings with imaginary suction cups on his shoes, and Gavin with his faith in his abilities as a ninja... I'm now positive the room would come crashing down around us all. No survivors.

Here's to several years of these antics. The ER can expect us roughly every 6 months.

Oh my. I would say his poor mom's guardian angel works over-time keeping her from heart-attacks.

When I heard about Gavin's little antic, I was 1.)concerned that he was okay and then 2.)not surprised at all. The combo of Jos' overly smart imagination, Gavin's fearlessness and hero-worship for Jos just begs for something like this. I mean, who wouldn't want to double check how we would get out if there was a fire??!! Ahhh, I agree w/ Aub on this...you must have some angel just keeping your heart going. Life's never dull w/ a ninja around. :) Give that little stinker a kiss from his Auntie.

Gavin: I AM NINJA! Joshia: YUP. YOU SURE ARE! MOM: OOOH MY GOSH!!! Grandad: I did that once and after recovering from the jolt, never did it again...
