YTT - Would you bet your son he couldn't do backflips every day?

The Parental Bluff

Some dads don't make bets with their sons -
the silly responsible ones -
but some dads, they do,
and some mothers too.
The child "wins" but they too gain tons.

Josh from "Its Tiger Time" invented You Tube Tuesday so we could each share one video a week which we found to be fun, inspiring or otherwise noteworthy.  If you choose to participate, don't forget to leave your links in my comments section (so I can come visit you) and on Josh's page (so you can be part of the contest).  I hope you like this week's selection!

  1. LOL not sure that is worth 100 bucks but I give him full props for being able to do a backflip and the dedication it took to do it every day.

    1. It definitely took a lot of dedication! I don't think 100 bucks would fill me with elation. :P

  14. What a great video! Just goes to show you that if you want something bad enough, anything is possible :) I believe I would have requested it to be an actual $100.00 bill and I would have framed it. What a story he has to share for generations to come. Thanks for sharing this with us Rachel.
