So...Good guesses everyone. Yes. They were planning on sliding down in the baby swing. Problem is Lara's knees were tucked under and she was TOP HEAVY!! Erin was going to give her a shove down and she would have fallen off the SIDE!!! Also, the ropes were going to snag before she hit the bottom leaving her to hang. She is ALSO, all strapped in, so to brace her fall it is quite possible she would have broken her wrists.
So....I YELLED STOP!!!!!!!! From the kitchen window.
THEN....I grabbed my camera.
THEN... I begged her to at least put on a helmet and stick her legs all the way through for more balance. She did...and made it down just fine.
I'm all about kids learning through play, but in this case I think Lara would have ended up with a concussion or broken neck to get it right the second time.
Oh...they were looking back at the ropes because it was stuck on something.
Anyone see a problem with this picture??? Anyone? Anyone at all? Tell me what the REAL problem in this situation is and I'll give you a prize. Well maybe not a prize, but I'm curious to know if you moms out there see what I am seeing.
