A Toddler's Life is Like a Platform Game

Rebecca is always running around looking for small chairs and stools that she can move different places, so that she can reach light switches, and turn on the water. She's gradually earning height power ups, but I think she's already earned all the other major ones, she can walk, talk, run, climb stairs, jump... I guess she still has quite a few advanced level power ups to earn, like riding a bike and climbing a rope. Oh, and she's working on summersaults.

Wow, now I wonder what the etymology of summersaults is, what a funny word, summer whats? Dictionary.app says: "ORIGIN mid 16th cent.(as a noun): from Old French sombresault, from Provençal sobresaut, from sobre ‘above’ + saut ‘leap.’"
