They have always loved the swings, since they were babies, and I could probably put a whole book together on pictures I have taken of them swinging over the years. I love a good swing myself, so I totally get it, but pushing them both for long periods of time, especially when they are not in adjacent swings, proves to be quite a workout for Mommy (not that I don't need it mind you).
Well, those days are coming to an end, as they can now do it all themselves. I taught them to pump their legs a long time ago, and they could keep going on their own, but always needed a few pushes to start and couldn't keep it going for more than a few minutes. I think they play on the swings at school, so that's probably where they learned it, but they can now push off on their own and keep it going. Oh, they still call me for an occasional push, but we are almost there! They are growing up and becoming more and more self-sufficient. Makes me a little misty-eyed.
