Do you have your Protectors on?

I was sitting at my computer and I kept hearing a "thud" over and over again. I became concerned as we have repeatedly told our daughter NOT to jump from the arm of the couch in her room or I guess I should say... jump off of ANYTHING in her room. We have already made one trip to the ER with a straddle injury from her jumping off of the end of the bed. That was no fun and I'd just rather we NEVER go through that again. So when I walked in to her room this is what I found.

Yes, the lovely couch usually has the blue cover on it. Apparently it had come off with all the jumping. I caught her in mid climb and she slid down on the couch to the position you see above and in the outfit you see. So I asked, hesitantly, "What are you doing and WHAT do you have on?"

"I was jumping, but I'm protected Mommy. These are my Protectors."
Yes, let us look at the complete outfit shall we? There is a helmet, elbow "protector" and my favorite... foot "protectors." The apron was left over from our cooking earlier. That was just added for fanciness.

Now if you people will just leave me alone, I can get back to my work- jumping.
Don't you love the Kleenex box most of all? I did my best not to laugh while she was in the room because she was SO serious about it, like she had spent a lot of time thinking it all thru.

There are some things you just can not make up, for those things we are just glad to have a camera close by.

Too cute!!! Kids are so innovative! Gotta love 'em. How ever did you keep from not busting up? I don't know that I could have, but then again, as a mom/grandma we learn to protect their little feelings too. Thanks for sharing Lana. Perfect ending to the day!

Found your blog via Blessed with Grace. Love it! I have three daughters and they also "love to jump." I couldn't stop giggling because your daughter's outfit reminds me so much of my own girls! Great photo! Thanks for the laugh!
