Day 294/365: Climbing Wall Birthday Party: Success [20181021|21:33]

[the weather today is |exhausted]

We spent the entire day preparing food, cakes, and party bags for, and then attending/catering, Humuhumu's birthday party. It was at the local clip 'n' climb wall, and I think I can safely say it was a resounding success for her and her buddies. There was a competition to find four stickers placed around the walls. Humuhumu found two of them and one of her non-school mates, who is also very athletic, found the other two.

The main thing I learnt is that I have given birth to two of them. I turned my back on Keiki for about a second and this happened.

Keiki, about a third of the way up "Amaze-ing". Apparently he got fed up with waiting for me to help him and decided to go for it.

My hair might as well just all turn white now.

My heart would stop with fright watching them! A cat on the roof is bad enough! Happy Birthday to your daughter.

Thank you! She could barely wait through the safety briefing before getting going.

Yikes, but well done Keiki. Having a sibling does set challenges. :) My older brother didn't get me into climbing but I was reading his books years earlier than I would have done on my own. Reading Dune aged 10 was eyeopening and much more interesting than Enid Blyton.

Hope you are all recovered now.

Keiki is starting to realise that his elder sister casts a long shadow. He's beginning to work quite hard to be recognised for his own accomplishments.

Recovery is stalled at "not getting worse", but I think that's all I can manage until Friday, when I actually have time off work.

He might be getting a teensy bit competitive. ;)

Thanks! My two are definitely fearless when it comes to trying anything physical.
