The other day, when Leo was gathering every pillow in the house to build a fort, he came up with a great idea: A Pillow Slide!!! So he strategically placed all the pillows lining the stairs and climbed to the top.
He sat at the top and launched himself down the steps.
thudding down them one...by one...by one...
15 minutes of hard work
For the most anti-climactic moment ever.
And the biggest pile-up ever!!!
Leo consulted with the Princess...
And the King, but neither could engineer a solution for him.
Now, I am no stranger to stair-sliding. I've tried every form of it and have sustained many injuries. I even experienced a major flashback when I saw this pile of pillows and had to fight the urge to take a running jump. I regret that missed opportunity...
As a parent, it is my duty and obligation to teach my children the proper art of stair-sliding. The only item you need is a cheap sleeping bag.
Ready for blast-off!
I don't know if I'm a parent fit for homeschooling. I would write this one off as a lesson in Physics
