Wordless Wednesday — Swinging

Olivia on a Rope Swing

This series of photos from camp led me to question, “Are second-born children braver?” Let me know your thoughts over at my post last week.

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

    I have 2 older girls and I’d have to say my 2nd one is intentionally braver. Don’t make me explain! LOL

    Of my 2 younger boys, I’d have to say the 2nd one is braver. My 1st wants to be braver so he does try. =)

    Love the rope swing photo!

    Yes! My daughter is braver, but also acts wiser. She doesn’t make the same mistakes her brother did before her. Well, and we are better parents now.

    What a great photo! I still need to go and reply to your Second Child post. I think in the case of our family it is VERY true. My little guy has no fear and loves to try anything/everything.

    I think if the kids are close in age, the second one can tend to be braver. If they are farther apart, the younger one can depend a little more on the older ones and then, develope slower.

    Beautiful pic! In our case, my second born is not braver. Our first born is a boy…a dare devil whom I caught propping his bike ramp on top of cinderblocks last night in an effort to catch bigger air! My second is a daughter, more of a girly girl. She’s pretty good at holding her own, but definitely more cautious than #1.

    Have a great Wed :)

    If you think your 2nd born is braver imagine my 4th – it’s a wonder my heart is still beating after all she has put it through – wonderful shot of your little one – so full of joy!

    looks like she is loving it. it makes me want to swing on a rope swing :).

    our 2nd child seems more fearless, but i don’t know if it’s because he’s a boy or if it’s because he’s the 2nd child (our 1st is a girl) or if it’s a little bit of both. although, our 1st child seemed fearless when she was younger, but now that she’s a bit older she seems more cautious about certain things.

    All my kids are brave – except the 1st born. He is the biggest chicken EVER. He’s 9 and just barely decided to try and learn how to ride a bike. But he’ll only practice in the grass. lol
