Do you ever do something and then think, "well, that was idiotic."? Well, I had one of those moments the other day. I had taken the kids to the park. Firecracker was trying to do the monkey bars, he was basically getting the idea, but I decided to show him how to do it. Now these weren't regular monkey bars, they were the short ones for little kids. In order to show him I had to bend my knees and hold myself just so. (I'm sure you can see where this is going)
Well, I got off balance and fell. This normally wouldn't be a big deal, however, because I was on the short monkey bars I landed on my knees. I got a big ol' scrape and cut. Basically I showed Firecracker exactly how NOT to cross the monkey bars.
I forgot to mention, we weren't the only ones on the playground. There was another mom and kid on the same play set. And they got to witness my *ehem* Proud moment. Right after my "moment" the mom gave me a funny look and she and her kid went to the other side of the playground. Apparently, I'm a bad influence. Or she didn't want my idiocy to rub off. Either way, I understand.
Have a great day!
