You may remember the day you got Rafa ready to go all on your own. Well that day we went to the library and ended up passing another festival (there are a lot of festivals in this city-which is another reason why we love it). So the day that started like this....
Ended like this...
When we saw Coral Way was blocked off with tents everywhere we headed in. I packed Rafa up in the sling as he likes to see what's going on around him more and more. I don't blame him.
Pia saw the bouncy slide and ran for it. You followed the other kids and took off your shoes at the base and just barreled up. That's you climbing on the right.
You'd never done anything like that befor and even has a tendency to shy away from bouncy houses, so I was so proud to see you so brave. When you got to the top you waited patiently to come down, but the big kids were monopolizing the slide by refusing to use the stairs to come back up. So you waited. There was one boy in particular who was really rough and was clearly scaring you. You hugged the back wall, moved forward when he went away, and ran back to the wall when he climbed back up. I was doing my best to let you work it out, because all in all I think you really wanted to try it for yourself. Eventually another father screamed at the boy until he and his friends were pulled off the slide. Then you were kinda frozen but two girls held your hands and slid down with you.
I thought that kind of bravery deserved a special treat. Your fav.
Rafa, who was screaming while you were on top of the slide (he has impeccable timing), was all cheered up by the shade of the tree under which you devoured roasted corn.wanted to run right back up the slide. You got there and then saw all the big kids there again, to which you hopped right back off and asked to go home. Ok with me.
I love you,
