I believe it's a sign of age and I'm certainly not as strong as I used to be .... but balance? About a week ago I was helping unload a truck full of tiles. The kid handed me a box, I took one step backward and was quickly on the ground with a heavy box of tiles on my chest. No broken tiles or broken bones but that was the end of my work for the day.
Yesterday I was going to be playful with Nahima and pretend I was going to put her in the pool. Picked her up and almost immediately went over backward with her on my chest. She was fine but scared and I got no bruises.
Gonna have to reevaluate my strength and balance moves.
