How does she make this look so easy?!

Poor Simon was trying to hop up onto the back of the couch like he's seen River do countless times.  Apparently this is not as easy as it looks.
This reminds me of myself in high school attempting to do a pull-up, which became thereafter known as a "dangle and drop" for those of us with no upper body strength.  Simon met with equal success in this endeavor.
After a minute or two of monumental effort to pull/climb to the top, he gave up and slid down onto his rump on the couch.  Pride wounded, he came over to me to be set on the ground again and then went under the dining table and flopped down with his back to us.  After a noogie and a few oats, he was his usual happy-go-lucky self again.
I'm sure he'll be back at it tomorrow and will eventually make it to the top of the couch.  Fall seven times, stand up eight.
Hope you all have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!
