Sometimes kids start down a road that is so profoundly stupid that a parent can do nothing but stand back and let the idiocy go on until natural consequences take their course.
The "game" that CC came up with involved all the boys blindfolding themselves and then jumping willy-nilly on the trampoline.
Everything was going fine for the first 10 minutes or so, as Daddy-007 and I watched from the house, each of us knowing deep down that the madness should be stopped, but somehow paralyzed and unable to bring ourselves to step in and insist that the game be disbanded.
And they looked so happy! So pleased with their ingenuity and game-creating skills!
And then the Animal's head collided with Destructo's head and CC tried to slink away as the howling commenced at ear-splitting volume.
Not one bit of sympathy was offered as all the children were ordered to their rooms for time-outs to calm down and for "being stupid."
Sometimes being a parent is like being a Casanova of tough love....
