Earlier today, I made a discovery that ended in a rough workout for my oldest son. We were in the backyard while I sprayed the yard for insects. I noticed that half of the rocks that we had under the slide on his playground were missing. These rocks had been collected from the surface of my yard when it was leveled it last year. I'd say that there were several hundred of them, mostly the size of golf balls or baseballs.
Anywho, as I said, half of them were clearly gone. I asked my son where they were and he said... "We threw them over the fence". I looked over the fence and saw large rocks ALL OVER my neighbors yard!!! My son and two of his friends had played this little game the evening before.
SO... I made my son pick up EVERY rock and throw them back over the fence... into our yard. Once he was done, he had come back into our yard and pick up every rock again and put them under the slide. By the end, he was sweating pretty good.
I honestly do not think he meant to do anything wrong, but he needs to learn to NEVER throw rocks. I chatted with the other boys father and we both agreed that our kids are knuckleheads! Maybe next time he'll pass on that goofy game!
Here's to parenting! *cheeers*
