I bought them a Slackline.
I know. I know.
What kind of Mom am I?
Well let me tell you.
I'm the kind of Mom that wants my kids to go out and try new things.
I'm the kind of Mom that wants my kids off of electronics and social media.
I'm the kind of Mom that wants my kids outside rather than inside.
I'm the kind of Mom that wants my kids to challenge themselves by learning a new skill.
I'm the kind of Mom that is willing to risk a few broken bones and possibly a twisted neck for the sake of some quick thrills.
Well, no, not that last one, but since I have proven that just walking next to the couch can result in a broken toe, I try really hard to not worry about the dangers of things like uni-cycling, climbing trees, skate boarding, back flipping, and well slack-lining.
Every day the kids are practicing and getting better. John got them a couple of PVC pipes to help them balance. Even John gets up on the slackline. Now that freaks me out!
