Inflatables - The Joys of a 3 Yr. Old

Our HOA had a neighborhood party, but it seems like the only thing we saw was the bouncy houses. They really weren't houses, more like something you would see on "Wipeout!"

Needless to say, Jarrett was in inflatable heaven. The climb started out looking ok, but it turned out to be pretty steep.

Yet, he was determined to make it. And he did. I was proud.

The slide was fun, and a few tumbles were taken along the way. But the little daredevil discovered that more fun could be had with his many "superhero" moves that he has perfected.

A Huge Leap to start off the Slide

Landing half-way down the slide was too much fun!

We didn't meet many people from our part of the neighborhood, but it was fun just the same.
Sometimes, the most fun  you can have as a mom is seeing the smiles on your child's face.  When that happens, time stops and the moments of joy and laughter are savored.  

All of this because of some hot air.    If you think about it for a minute, it can really challenge you.  When you are in that moment of frustration and "hot air", you can choose one of two ways to influence those around you:  (1)  anger and hurt from your frustration, or (2)  joy and laughter from you taking the hot air and turning it into something fun and exciting.

Which will you choose?

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive."
Gen 50:20
