The Next American Ninja Warrior: Spider Jump

The boys were recently introduced to American Ninja Warrior, and of course were instantly hooked. It’s right up their alley with their climbing,  jumping, and anything daring obsessions. I’m telling you, these boys do the monkey bars until their hands blister {badly} and then go right back again.

Their favorite part of watching the show is reenacting the challenges either creatively inside or at the backyard play set. {Knock on wood, no ER visits yet!} In fact a lot of the time, they can’t get through an entire episode, because they can’t wait to try out a new challenge. And yes, I remind them daily that their mom is exceptionally kind for letting them climb on the stair banisters and jump off couches. It’s worth the trade of them getting out boy energy and keeping my sanity over having nice {breakable} things in our home. Our home is lived in and loved on, and that’s how we’ll take it for now.

Recently Brooks tried scaling the door frame again and realized he could make it all the way to the ceiling. Challenge accepted. I’m pleased to announce that the “Spider Jump” has been completed by all four future contestants.I don’t even hold my breath anymore when they jump from the top of “Level 2” doorway, because I’m becoming a seasoned Boy Mom. They even wipe off their footprints from the well, like true Ninja Gentlemen.
