Like I Should Talk...

After spending so much time yesterday commenting on the Tongginator's sensory issues and how they impact her gross motor skills, I thought I should rat out myself. Remember, y'all, I'm a sensory gal, too.

As you can see...

Tonggu Momma in Iwakuni, Japan 1978

Exactly how many children DOES it take to help a four-year-old Tonggu Momma do a bar flip? And I don't even want to think about how many people it would take to flip me now.

haha...I love the girl holding your feet - she looks like she's trying to flip a snake!

Awww...how cute are all of you?! I'm assuming you DIDN'T like to be upside down? It's funny how some sensory kids crave the added input and others hate it!

One of these days I'm going to post photos of Quatro in the baby swing. With a look of PURE TERROR on his face because he was MOVING. He's still a slightly weird kid. Go read what he did this morning! Fruity, I'm telling you.

Well, at least you had plenty of cushion (people) to break your fall if you had slipped! Ha!

Blessings!

I like the jungle gym in the background ... a fish with scales and fins ... why don't they make cool stuff like that anymore ... OR did they ever i this country?

I could so totally still do a bar flip if I got a running start. Then again, I might just clothes-line myself and wind up with a bad headache. Maybe I should just stick to spinning around until I get dizzy and fall down. =)

Hee hee. I love that picture. I could never do a bar flip. I was always too nervous. I don't know what I was nervous of but I was too nervous. I did it a few times but man I did not like it.

I never could do bar flips. I hate being upside down and the sensation of falling. Yes, I admit it--I'm a big chicken. The fact that I have a daredevil for a daughter is evidence of God's sense of humor. :-)

I see London, I see France...

Rhonda, I so wanted to say the same thing but thought, as her mother, I probably better not. Thank you!

Sharie said...

THAT is FUNNY! I was always afraid I would fall off the bar...but no one ever tried to help me.

Ohilda said...

OMG, that's hilarious!! :)

I wouldn't even attempt it now.

Soliloquy said...

What's with the racy picture, Tonggu Momma?!

Sheesh. Have a little decency.

Oh wait.

That's not how you roll. (snort)

I love that they're also holding the bar. I shudder to think of trying to attempt this myself now...

Heather of the EO said...

I can't even believe all the cool pics you have. This one? HILARIOUS.

I'm sure girls that size (and the same amount of them) could flip you now. It would just take a little while longer :)

Missy said...

Laughing out loud...poor Tonggu Momma!!! I just read the below post and I beg to differ, sister, you are on the ball. You have accomplished a lot with the Tongginator! She will soar in Kindergarten!!!

kia (good enough mama) said...

HAHAHAHAAHAHA!!! I thought it was going to be a story about the outbreak of bullying in Japan...

CC said...

So... was 5 girls enough? Or did you need even more than that???

That is too funny.

I find it interesting how many parents of kids with SPD who have their own sensory issues. My husband and I both have many (Bil can't even swing at the park, I hate roller coasters, lots of noise, big crowds, etc.) I guess it helps us understand our kids a bit better.

LOL oh my goodness did you make me laugh....I almost wet my pants I was laughing so hard LOL
That picture is hysterical.

Colleen said...

oh yes and the SID....well you already know I get it...I'm living it big time right now. Man is it hard.
