My husband and I took the kids sledding yesterday. I forgot my camera, again. But here are a few pictures, I took not to long ago, on another sledding trip.
(taken at high school. It looks like fence is in way, but no way of hitting that)
But anyway, we went to a place sledding we haven't been to in awhile. And it was plowed in a little on the side so there was somewhat of an icy snowbank. With a possibility of sliding into it. So the kids were sledding, actually my son was using his snow board. And was doing great on it. I've got to get a picture of him on that. So my daughter was doing great at first, but she was getting a little nervous of going into this one little tree in the way. I mean it was practically a twig and wouldn't even hurt if you bumped into it. My husband placed her in a good spot, but she moved half way down, because of this tree. So in the mean time she went right into the snow bank instead. She kind of wiped out and fell into it a little.
I ran down there to make sure she was ok. She was fine. But her being the drama queen that she can be sometime, really cried overboard on it. She came back up the hill, but proceeded to cry. And was scared then of going down the hill. My husband was trying to get her not to be afraid and said it was ok, he'd make sure she didn't do that again.
In the mean time a man & his daughter showed up to sled down the hill. That is fine. Great. Sled all you want. But the problem was, while my husband was talking to my daughter (very patiently I might add) my daughter was still somewhat crying (totally overreacting), this man kept giving us the dirtiest looks. This nosy guy kept pacing back and forth looking at my husband & daughter and then at me (I was sitting up on a bench) and totally staring at us. I think this guy thought we were forcing my daughter to sled or something. I don't know what he thought, but It was none of his business, and it totally was my daughter just being totally overboard about the whole thing.
It's hard to explain, but both my husband and I were getting really aggravated with this guy and the looks he was giving us. Finally my husband was like let's get out of here, and go to the place we usually go sledding. Which is at the high school, where there is a better hill and nothing to worry about bumping into. We got to the high school and the kids had a great time sledding and snowboarding. They did it for almost an hour more. We will just go there from now on.
I know my daughter can be somewhat of a drama queen, but I wish other people would not be so judgemental, when they don't even know the situation. I'm sure this guy's kid is just perfect right? And never cries? Oh well. My kids ended up having fun in the long run.
