We were at the park a few weeks ago and Carter discovered the monkey bars. It was amazing to me how he just figured it out. I never showed him. He must have seen another kid doing it. Anyway, I thought it was great and I wanted Kent to witness it so we came back on Saturday. NOT surprisingly, Carter refused to show his dad his new trick- we are continually amazed at his stubborness. Finally, once I had given up and we had both decided to just drop it, he walked over to the slide climbed up the stairs and swung from the bar. At first we had to act like we didn't care so he would keep doing it, but eventually he let us revel in his accomplishment.
