Since the moment she was born, my husband has been showing our baby how to be a daredevil. At 16 months old she seems to be getting high off the thrill!
Momlogic's Gina: I love the fact that my baby is brave. She climbs on things. She doesn't cry when she falls down. We have dumped water over her head in the bath from day one and she loves it! I am proud of her -- and I think this is a trait that will help her during her life.
My husband, however, is taking things to the next level. When he lifts her up -- he lifts her super high. When she jumps on the bed, he lets her go close to the edge. She even pikes her body and puts her head on the ground so he will lift her legs over her and she does this baby headstand! I keep telling him that if we were in Romania in the 1960s she would have been taken from us to become an Olympian!
Anyway, I noticed that she now craves this exciting behavior. I'm nervous that this is going to become part of her personality -- that she's going to become one of those thrill seeking kids. You know the type who is always jumping out of planes, buying motorcycles and rock climbing. Maybe she WAS born with like this, but I do question encouraging it.
Am I wrong to say something?
