Corollary To The Gym

Going to the gym has apparently made her braver at home, as well. I submit proof:

"Hi daddy! I'm just going to climb up here, okay?"

"Ooh, a camera? Let me unsteadily run and charge at you and maybe fall off the couch!"
She then attempted to dive, face-first, off of the couch. It somehow caught me absolutely by surprise but I was able to grab her in such a way as to flip her, head-over-heels*, and land her on her bum. She's still not quite getting this concept of "feet first" to get off the couch. Either that or she thinks her nose is a "feet."

*Is it just me, or should this saying be "heels-over-head?"


  1. Ok so "Either that or she thinks her nose is a 'feet.'" made me laugh out loud.

    1. It's the only reasonable explanation I can think of when I tell her "Feet first" and, seeming to understand (I swear her little face clearly says "Okay, I've got this, this time"), and then leaps off the couch, face-first toward the ground.

      So now we're working on "Feet" vs. "Nose."
