Back in the 80s, with no tv reception and loving 30 minutes outside of town, entertainment looked very different than what my kids are used to. One of our favorite activities was when my mom would “fling” us onto the couch. It’s a very lo-fi game but it’s SO FUN. My mom would lay on her back and we’d sit on her feet. Then she’d launch us into the air and we’d land on the couch. We’d circle around taking turns until inevitably one of us overshot and hit the wall. Then she’d declare the game over until the next round.
I thought of it today when Sydney was trying to teach herself to backflip. I can’t believe it took me so long! Once I flung Eli and he understood the concept, he took over. We haven’t laughed so hard in a long time, and no one ended with an ER trip!
