Facing Your Fears

Several months ago, Max received this great gift: A Giraffe Tunnel. We were pretty stoked thinking it would provide hours of giggles. What's not to love? You can climb on it. Roll it. Play in it. And to top it off, it's in a posh giraffe print [that's the part I liked at least]

Well needless to say, Max has not been in love with the giraffe tunnel. He has, instead, been petrified of the thing. We get it out to play and he crawls the other direction. We put his favorite toys inside and he looks at us like, "who cares?" We play peek-a-boo thinking it will entice him in inside, no way. Not interested. And quite fearful.

So, Sam, being the brave dad that he is, decided it was high time Max overcame this giraffe tunnel fear. 

Look Max, tunnels are cool:

Yep, that is Sam inside the tunnel. 

Pretty cool inside the giraffe, huh Max?

Give it a whirl, little buddy!
You can do it!

Halfway through and no sign of turning back!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. 

Max is officially over his giraffe tunnel fear. Thanks for saving the day, Dad.
