WEEK 7 – RIDING A ROLLERCOASTER

Last week we had to travel to Orlando for work, so as usual, we made a quick trip to Disney. I have been looking for a perfect time to take Lexi on a rollercoaster for a few months now. I can’t say this was her first rollercoaster experience. My tall girl was 35 inches when she was slightly over 1, so we took her on the Goofy’s Barnstormer, a small rollercoaster meant to be the first coaster for little ones over 35 inches tall. At 1 years of age, she didn’t really comprehend as much, she was sort of scared, but then asked to go again after we were done (which we did). I was really curious how she would do this time considering she now knows what a rollercoaster is. One of her favorite Curious George books ( aren’t they all), is a book about Curious George not being tall enough to ride a coaster. So when we were at the park, and I would ask her if she would go on a rollercoaster with me she would answer “No, I’m too big for it! Go Carousel!” Obviously, she meant “too small” and was referring to the book we always read. I kept trying to videotape her saying say, but each time I’d turn the camera on, she would stop saying it ( it’s always that way). You can see on the video me asking her over and over again hoping she would tell me she is too big again :)
