Don't Laugh!!!

Last night after we finished celebrating Ryan's birthday I was trying to remember what I used to get up to when I was his age..............I was looking through some old pictures that mum had given me and this is what I found.........
This is Genavive my pet donkey....... I remember riding, brushing and playing with her every day......... she used to come up to the back door and rattle an old cow bell and the only way to make her stop was to give her a peppermint lolly........ pretty smart I thought!

I clearly remember this particular afternoon way back then............ I was riding her up the driveway and she decided that it was too far to the end and just stopped, I gave her a little dig in the ribs as I usually did but this time I wasn't expecting her to pig-root and I fell off......I didn't think much about it until I walked back down the driveway to mum and she said "I'm going to have to take you to hospital look at your arm", I looked down and could see that my arm had been broken............. well that was it for me I cried and cried "I don't want to go to hospital can't you fix it".

Anyway looking back at life when I was an 8 year old kid is totally different to Ryan's at 8, the things we got up to I would never let my kids do!!! A little too protective maybe or maybe things were just less complicated back then.

Something to think about....
