Jumpin' skills.

Yesterday was a crazy-busy day, and all I wanted to do after cheer practice was GO HOME, but there was this health fair thingy at school and the kids were BEGGING me to take them. 

And of course, like the strong person I am, I caved. 

But I'm glad I did, because I got schooled in a talent that my kids have. Something I was totally unaware about. 

I'm busy working the room, in my typical G fashion, when I notice that Pierce just casually walked up to the jump ropers, and well, all I could was stand there in shock at how good he was! 

And once the shock wore off, I couldn't help but revert to my old rhyming days. 

Down by the river, down by the sea

Johnny broke a bottle and blamed it on me

I told ma

I told pa

Johnny got a spanking, so ha ha ha

How many spankings did Johnny get? 




Okay, that's where my jumprope rhymes end, but you guys, there's more! Because unbeknownst to me I've got a daughter who also knows how to jump. And lucky for everyone, I just happen to remember one more jump rope diddy from back in the day, you know when I could jump rope for more than .5 seconds and not want to die.

Cinderella dressed in yella'

Went upstairs to kiss her fella

Made a mistake

Kissed a snake

How many doctors did it take? 

It took 1....


And that's all I got.

I'm kicking myself for not taking any video of it! MOM FAIL. But maybe next time.

Thankful for my kids and their tenacity, and for the chance to dust off the old rhymes.
