The little kid lawn mower has a lot of use around our yard. And this week, or kids found a new use for it.
Do you see the joyful expressions on their face during this?
Well, these were taken in the first 20 seconds of this activity.
Then. It all changed.
What started out as a decent idea turned out to be a bust. Because he kept tipping the weight balance backwards — which made her fall forward, face plant, and pinch her fingers — and then subsequently scream and cry — and she’d forcefully try again and he’d leap on with joy and it’d be fine for 2 seconds — and then he’d unknowingly tip backwards and then she’d fall forward — repeat, repeat, repeat.
We eventually just said stop. Which turned their anger and frustration towards us. The innocent by-standing parents watching this fail of an activity. Which then we just hauled the screaming kids inside (literally) and started bath and shower time.
They tried. And it doesn’t always turn out.
It’s 545pm. Let’s just all go to bed.
