Emma tied this balloon to a basket filled with her kitchen toys.
Then threw it up in the air, the Pooh way. I saw the whole thing.
It came down promptly with a crash.
Nathan and I started scolding her for throwing toys.
When I realised that she was as shocked as us.
She actually expected it to fly!
And why wouldn't she? Pooh flew easily, hanging on a balloon.
Curious George flew under a bunch of balloons.
Of course I immediately clarified to her that people don't fly. Not with balloons, umbrellas, or otherwise!
Then a hug.
Thankful that her first try was not jumping off a ledge with a balloon.
