A Right of Passage...

All of our grandchildren have gone through Grandpa Fabulous's tutelage of the "Right of Passage Trick". The babies always love being "balanced in the air at a standstill" till they decide to sit down into Grandpa's arms. It scares the bejebees out of the women in the family (particularly the babies mothers), but all the "Men" (older and younger) seem to think it's an ordinary, common event that happens in the lives of the little people coming into our fun and sometimes (most times) crazy family.... in sorts, "A Right of Passage".

PS No babies have ever been dropped,hurt, or scarred in Grandpa Fabulous's trick... (knock on wood.)

In our family, this is known as the "Baby Hercules" trick, take from an old black and white 8 mm movie we watched as kids. Kirk did it with our kids but not our grandkids. Keep up the great tradition!

Oh my gosh my dad always did this with us! Oh, I see that my mom already mentioned it :) He actually did it with the first grandkid - my oldest Noah - but I guess it didn't continue to the rest of the grandkids!

So fun! And my mom & sis brought back memories of my dad doing this. Little Sloan is looking so grown up!
