Go right to 13:21. One of my favourite parenting stories:
Anwyay, then the giggling set in and I finally got up completely unscathed much to my surprise.
How things change throughout the years. When we’re little we fall all the time and just bounce back up and continue on as if nothing’s happened. In our 50’s we just lay there like a big old tortoise on its back before even considering getting up.
I snowshoe with a fast group and we fall on a regular basis. We often plough into each other, slide into tree wells, fall face first down embankments, etc. … laughing like maniacs. It feels like being a little kid again. Obviously that only applies to snowshoeing as I felt like a feeble old woman laying on the kitchen floor (haha).
What brings out your inner child?
A friend of my son has a little boy who lives in a different city. He would call his little boy every night and one night, after listening to his son chatter in the background as he was playing, the dad called his son to the phone and suggested they end their call. The little boy said, “No Daddy, I’m not finished playing yet, you have to keep listening to me play.”
How adorable is that?! He just loved knowing his Daddy was on the phone listening to him play … next best thing to being there.
Do you have any cute stories, I’d love to hear them.

Came across this video which is so cute. Poor kid is so nervous he can barely speak. Please ignore the mean comments about him if you end up in the Youtube site.
More funny stuff.
A little kid pointed to me and said, “Mommy, that’s her!” He looked kinda scared and the mom explained that she uses me as a threat to keep him in line: “If you don’t behave I’ll call the TV BratBusters Lady to come and handle you!” Ha ha.
She said it won’t work anymore as now he’s seen I’m not that scary afterall.
Go ahead and use me as a threat, just make sure your kids don’t meet me or it’ll no longer work :).
