Being brave

I’m going to be using this post for a few linky’s this week – Magic Moments, What’s the Story? and Small Steps Amazing Achievements as it covers all three really well.  My Monkey being brave.

Monkey is not a climber, he’s not particularly adventurous, a trip to the park really means a trip to the swings.  So imagine my surprise when we visited Beale Park on Thursday last week (separate post to follow) and Monkey walked across the rope bridge all by himself, not once, but over and over again.  My Monkey was being brave, it was a magic, unexpected moment.

This may seem like nothing, something that most other children heading towards their 4th birthday can achieve with ease.  This is epic for my Monkey, I was so proud of him, and the look of satisfaction on his face was a sight to behold.  I only got two photos of him in motion as I was just enjoying watching him overcome his fear, become a little braver, become a bit more adventurous.

Maybe one day he’ll tackle a climbing frame or enjoy a trip to a soft play centre, I don’t know, but just for now I’m so happy for him, another big step for my little Monkey.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
