Watching kids tumble and do dangerous things is heart-wrenching as an adult, and being told that as a kid is such a bother!
I don’t know how many times I came straight out of my chair with a mighty inhalation to grab my grandson.
It gives you exercise, that’s for sure.
A six or seven year old, wrangling a chainsaw nearly as big as she is, would give me nightmares.
Yeah, seems like Ted kind of dropped the ball there. “Don’t touch the chainsaw” seems pretty basic.
And honestly, any of my kids would be waiting for a turn to sit there. This is why I have more grey then brown hair on my head.
When I think back the all of the “kid stuff” I and my pals got up to… Oh, boy!
Climbing trees to ridiculous heights, rope swings, “exploring” miles from home, fireworks large and small, sledding on deadly hills with a stream at the bottom, bad ideas, stupid risks, and all entirely fun and exciting!
Scars I have, and plenty, but no broken bones or a lost eye, (thanks be to my preserving angel), and I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything.
Of course, I still won’t tell my mother about those things.
@Liptonius, your mom just emailed me and told me to tell you that she just read that. ;-)
