I thought about how to say something to Gabby, but I couldn't figure it out. Not to mention she's on vacation right now, and by the time gets back to email it'll be dumb. Then I read this facebook comment she wrote about the slip n slide (she posted it on Saturday but I didn't see it until Monday, ugh).
I just went down it for the first time and I FLEW! Landed on my butt in the pool because I was going too fast to stop, it's amazing! A mommy's dream, haha!
So not the thing I, as the intended parent, wanted to hear. "...I was going too fast to stop." Did it not occur to her that I would see this? And I can't even really say anything since A) I didn't see it until two days after she wrote it B) she's on vacation and away from FB for now, C) two people "liked" her comment, and D) her sister said "Wow!" after it. (I imagine her sister must know she's pregnant though, I think they are pretty close). Me writing, "Um, can you be careful please?" probably wouldn't go over well.
So what did I do, but go look up slip n slides. I remember the one my family had back in the day - a flimsy sheet of plastic that didn't even have that little cheap "pool" at the end of it (that was the fancier, later version)
Ours just ended throwing you into the grass, which became a puddle of mud as we slid over and over again. I was such a girly girl, I hated getting covered in dirt, so I wouldn't use it often. Plus, I always slipped on the plastic before I was able to hurl myself down and the water was very cold...and yeah...
But these blow up slip n slides are something else!
Gabby sent me a picture of it with her kids on it but I won't put it on here. Now, since she ended up on her butt in the pool she obviously at least had to have gone on on her butt or back. If she'd gone on her stomach, she would have ended up face first in the pool, right? I just hope the pool was filled up enough that she didn't drop too much.
Ugh...I should not have to worry about this stuff.
She is always telling me her husband is always worrying about the babies (her words, she's sure there's plural). When she was stressed about work the other day he told her it wasn't good for them. I'm surprised he didn't have a problem with her doing this, then!
I know, I need to trust. It is so hard.
