Yesterday, Jax faced his fears. Most of the time, he is a little scaredy cat of anything new. We went to the carnival yesterday. Last time we went, he would only ride the carousel. He was afraid to ride anything else. Well, I guess he decided he was gonna be brave because he rode the carousel, the bus that goes round and round in the air, the motorcycles and he climbed all the way to the top of the slide all by himself. Granted, he didn't have the courage to slide down, but everybody knows the fun part of that is climbing to the top anyway.
As his mommy, my heart was just overflowing with pride and awe to watch him on those rides and see the look of pure joy on his face. It is rare to see that innocence and joy of experiencing something so new and fun for the first time at our age anymore. You could tell he was having so much fun and he was so proud of himself for riding all by himself like a big boy. Lots of happy moments yesterday.
