Revenge of the Net!

Our last trampoline net was abused, then destroyed, at the hands of my seven-year-old daughter.  Apparently, our newest net wasn’t going down without a fight.

My captured daughter was half crying and half giggling during the five minute extraction.  I know I am a mean mom, but I am grateful to have this picture, forever!  All parties are now in excellent condition.

Grateful Mom Goal of the Year: I’ve already broken the goal from my last post, so from now on, I’m just appreciating the free entertainment. 

Comment About Comments:  I’ve received two numerous emails from people telling me my comment system hasn’t been working this week.  Uhg.  Blogger says a fix should come shortly.  We will see. ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    I would have been completely unable to help because I'd be laughing SO hard! I have that habit of laughing at my children when they get themselves into situations like this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great holiday weekend! I'm sure it'll be full of blog worthy material for next week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I could not keep the resoultion either, it is part of what I love about being a mom, the constant entertainment!! Have a great weekend!! Thanks for always being a fun place to viist!

  3. Rachael says:

    lol I'm glad you took the moment to take the pictures before commencing extraction! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. just me... says:

    That is too funny! I'm glad you take pictures. They will come in handy much later in life… "Remember this? And this? Yes, the retirement home with the spa will do just fine, thank you!"

  5. Blogger is killing me today! It didn't post my story length comment! Anyway long story short, THAT IS HILARIOUS! Have a great weekend.

  6. Oh fun! Well, not the tangling part, at least not for Dani… but the TRAMPOLINE! Have you had it long? We just had one given to us last week, and the kids LOVE it!

    Seriously need to learn from you about the picture taking …. I constantly regret not capturing events.

  8. Mom of 12 says:

    Ouch! That is why my trampoline doesn't have a net. Maybe falling off would have been less dangerous???

  9. Mormongirl says:

    That has happened to many a net at my house (six kids with me as the oldest at 15!). I love your blog and honesty and knowing when to take a picture!

  10. Karen Greenberg says:

    Ah, it's okay to laugh at our kids once in awhile. That's part of the reason we had them, right?

  11. I think ur daughter partly enjoyed it too, but start to cry when everyone laugh at her, still it makes to smile at it

  12. Tatiana says:

    I think I would have laughed really hard first, followed by telling her to hold on so I could take about 20 pictures, called anyone else so they could witness it too, and then helped her out. Maybe. Or maybe I would just have left her to figure it out on her own so I could laugh some more.

  13. LOL! Can't beat the free entertainment! Great way to look at it ๐Ÿ™‚ I REALLY need to start looking at things that way!!

  14. Charlotte says:

    Trampolines and resulting entertainment are worth the cost of replacing parts. And possible even worth the broken bones. We are getting our new trampoline this month.

  15. This is hysterical. I, too, am laughing quite hard!!
