I saw something interesting at the park on the fourth of July. I came over the hill toward the playground, and I see my almost seventy year old mother crossing the jiggly, swaying bridge thing on the playset. Then I see her make her way to the slide, and Im thinking, "Is she...?" She didnt slide, she bent down on her hands on knees near the top of the slide. She finally stands up and I call out to her, "What are you DOING?" Of course she realizes how it looks and laughs.
Apparently, my daughter, in her ever attention seeking ways, was stopped in the middle of the slide and calling for help. I told my mom "she doesnt need help, shes looking for attention". She said that she realized that once she got up there.
That night I had a little talk with Sasha about risking Grandmas health by "crying wolf". Like most things with her, it probably went in one ear and out the other, until I tell her for the 4th time. Then she might get it.
