Well that's not safe! | Klutch Photography | Vancouver family photography

Our trampoline is a mess right now, no paddling, no net and a little rusted...so basically it's looks like everyone's trampoline from the eighties!  When guests are coming over I actually text the parents letting them know the condition of the tramp and if they give me the thumbs up I at least have some form documentation just in case!

Yesterday the girls had a friend over and while they played I decided to go have a shower before our "girls night out" with my daughters to our favourite sushi place.  When I exited my bathroom and walked into my bedroom to cover my mom body,  I could hear screaming that was well... not quite the norm!  It had a shrill of "holy fuck' it.

When I looked out the window from the second floor there they were, on the death trap with one more layer of Evil Coneval they'd added...DISH SOAP, fluffy slippery DISH SOAP!!

Well that' not safe! I thought.

 I continued to get a well-needed support bra on and grab my camera. Document this moment first, deal with the situation second! So I said "welcome to the elevated 80's kids, don't break anything but if you do you can only blame yourselves!

Small risk, equals confidence (they all survived, Che' did get a kinked neck tho lol).

The evil joys I get while having to parent my children | Klutch Photography | Vancouver family photographer

why do i enjoy having my kids suffer like we did in the 70's and 80's?  ok, it's actually less on the suffering  part and more of the "figure shit out or die" type of childhood play that i enjoy so much... i think it really helped me become resilient and to "think out of the box" type of person.

so do you remember those "death like" roller skates,? yep- you got it...adjustable 70's metal skates with ONE strap and no breaks! i found two pairs of them! christ, if that wasn't the universe providing my girls with an 80's holdback i don't know what is! when i showed greg (hubby) the skates  he said "are you trying to kill them?"  really? says the guy who tries to pull 360's on an air chair on the lake. 

me : "R E L A X babe,  they have grass to land on" (and dollar store mittens to protect their hands)!

and all you others need to calm down and put your phone away folks, no need to call child services....their still alive people! we did worse, FAR WORSE in our day!

the girls night was spent mostly in the downward dog position and i couldn't stop laughing or grinning at the constant falling - high pitched screaming-falling or laughter mixed with joy when they didn't fall.

they asked for help. to which i replied  "HELP!,  good lord, you kids are soft. your on your own roller girls... remember were building layers to your onion"!  (i did try to help by popping up a you tube video for tips but that went through on roller skate and out the other).

The crazy part- they loved it and what to do it again!  REALLY??!!  Clearly they like doing yoga (with wheels on)!

This my fellow P's is the evil joys i get to have while i parent my kids to be strong out of the box, resilient people!!
