P.S.

I hate playgrounds. And it turns out that Pregnant Girl should stop visiting them while she's hormonally fragile and emboldened. Otherwise I might bite some kid's head off, curse his blind and deaf mother under my breath, and cry all the way home.

i agree...playgrounds--whether in an outdoor park or a fast-food restaurant--are NOT of God! they make me very nervous.

You probably didn't mean to but you made me laugh!

Michele Helms said...

Those playgrounds can definitely be dangerous...you should also avoid the indoor..McDonald's kind as well!! :)

Kelly said...

You make me laugh really hard!

Sarah said...

actually, that is a good thing to stay away from. it is, as i am sure you are aware of, one of the top three most germiest places and I wonder why...stay healthy. :)

Amanda, I think I just snorted I was laughing so hard!

I've SO been there. But not recently. My poor triplets have NEVER been to a park and they're 15 months old! Bad mommy...

I'm sure whatever got you frustrated...DESERVED your frustration (does that make sense? i'm trying to say you had a right to be frustrated).

Heh-heh... Many a mother loses her cool at a playground.

Okay - WOW!!! Umm, yeah I think it's safe to say that you need to avoid playgrounds like the plague. At least until baby girl is born.

Laura said...

Oh, I know how you feel! I have scolded so many children at public playgrounds while their Moms were gossipping on a bench with their 'friends.'

Stay away from the playgrounds!!

Erica said...

That is too funny. I just took the girls to the local playground yesterday and there were teenagers blocking the tops of all of the slides. When Brea climbed up to go down the slide, they looked at her like she had a 2nd head...really. Is this the new hangout? Whatever!

I agree, just thank God it was not the playground ridden with the rotavirus we ran into!!! That really makes me hate playgrounds!!!!

Mariel said...

hahaha! i've definately been there...even when i'm not prego!

Fran said...

Honestly...I'm so glad that we are over them because I did all the above mentioned things.

Today a better day?!
Hugs,

I had a similar experience at the McDonald's playground when a child shoved my son at the entrance to the playground and nearly knocked him off the platform! I packed up our things and we left!

MITZI said...

only baby bullies go to playgrounds! Take Bibby with you next time. Us grandmas will speak up to blind moms and baby bullies! In a godly way of course!!

Sam McClure said...

I am so sorry! A friend called me the other day and asked what I was doing and I said that I was in the middle of managing the chick-fil-a playground. i'm so with you!

yankee mama said...
