    DS Getting Braver
    tbkittycat posted:
    Well, DS is definitely getting braver as he gets older. We go to our State Fair every year and last year he wouldn't go on any rides and cried when we put him on the monorail with us (but was fine once it got going). Last year he didn't want to pet any of the animals and cried when they got too close. This year, he willingly went on two rides, happily got on the monorail and loved petting the animals (his favorite was the baby potbellied pig).

    I don't think he'll ever be a daredevil though. I think we'll be buying the unlimited ride wristband for his sister before we buy it for him.

    when we went on vacation DD was all gung ho to ride this roller coaster that she could see off in the distance from the water park. Once she rode it though she was scared to death. I don't think she will be on one again for awhile. But DS wanted to ride it with me 2 more times.

    That's great!

    I noticed a big difference in Emily being braver this year, too. Elizabeth has always been braver than her sister. This year, though, Emily will ride the scarier rides with her sister and DH. I'll just stand and watch, thank you very much.

    I'm with you on the stand and watch. When we were first married, DH and I went to an amusement park with his kids (they were in their teens at the time) and I was the one who held the wallets, sunglasses, etc. while they went on the roller coasters. I'm not a big fan of them and have a personal rule that head must be above feet at all times.
