"That went smooth"

Yesterday my sisters daughters celbrated their 9th and 12th birthdays. My youngest niece wanted a piggyback ride, but couldn't jump up high enough. So, I got down on one knee, she climbed up, and I lunged up with her on my back. My husband was looking and said, quite sarcastic "that went smooth". I told my niece that her uncle wanted to try as well.. He tried, failed and had to admit that I had done pretty good :) I felt quite proud of myself.
