    Nice! Cirque de Soleil, right in your family room!

    Oh this one rocks. I do the same with my girls in the pool. When we are in the pool I get them in about 4 feet of water, and grab them under their arms, then we count 1, 2, 3! And on 3, they jump up, and I push up with my legs and press them vertically over my head in a backward direction...then release them. My 7 year old loves this because she is big boned, and wishes she were still a little kid. My 4 year old goes crazy, she loves this, she goes rocketing through the air cackling in delight, while the other Mom's and Dad's pretend nothing is happening...HAAA!!!! :yim_rolling_on_the_

    Yeah, I do it from the side of the pool. i will basically pick them up in a seated position, then in a push press movement launch them into the pool. I do it for that added height above the water. If its not my kid I can see the nervousness in the parents face :yim_rolling_on_the_ Of course you always end up with a kid that squirms and lands in a belly flop, poor poor kid

    edit: I gotta find an indoor pool now with no boring rules.
    Im out, its been fun

    I'll try that in the spring.

    Rules? You mean "guidelines", right?

    My ISTP father once stapled us to the wall when we were misbehaving and let us hang there spread-eagled until our mom got home.

    Oh, that's not even the most impressive thing he's done. The stories I have concerning that man's ideas of how to raise a child...it was mental warfare, I tell you! :eek:

    Ok, I may do this to my son, I swear I dont do it to be mean always. I can reverse engineer thoughts and things on the fly and always use the back door so to say. I couldnt tell you how many time I sneaked up on someone who was trying to sneak up on me.

    Sometimes its stupid things like I hear them walking up to the door because they are talking and right when they get to the door I knock on it from the inside.

    Or wiring the doorbell into my room so I can mess with someone.

    LOL! You have described my dad's attitude perfectly.

    And by mental warfare, I didn't necessarily mean it as a bad thing, though it pretty much was hell at the time. You see, since we're both xSTP, we're both able to reverse-engineer thoughts and anticipate another person's actions. I completely baffled the man because his tricks didn't work on me! In fact, I threw them right back at him! He was so used to people dancing like little puppets whenever he pulled the strings that I both surprised and irritated him that I danced around his efforts and yanked his strings right back, lol.

    It was an 18-year game of POKE poke POKE poke POKe poke POKE poke...

    The reason I say it wasn't all bad is that because of this, I learned from the master.
