Swinging at Sunset

On Friday, James and I walked over to the park in our neighborhood for some "swinging at sunset". The park overlooks the lagoon and provides a beautiful view as the sun sets over the water. But, what caught James' eye were two little girls swinging in the next swings over. However, they were using the only two toddler swings and were able to swing very high, safely.
Key word here is SAFELY.

James: "Look mom! See how high they are going! Higher! Higher!"
Me: "Listen, you aren't used to this big boy swing. Hold on tight and don't let go. We can't go too high. It's not safe."

James: screaming "HIGHER!"
And then his little impatient temper gets the best of him......

Yep. This is a picture of James falling out of the swing as he's yelling at me to push him higher. I was just snapping away, not realizing that he had let go in his demands. Luckily, I'm raising quite the stunt man and he just jumped right up and brushed off his hands as if to say, "I meant to do that."
This concluded our sunset swing session and secured my entry into the mommy-of-the-year award- NOT!
