Stuck in the Slide!


Yesterday I took my son to the local park. It has been sunny and beautiful just a bit breezy. For some reason he has been a bit apprehensive about slides. Months previous we could not keep him off of them. Its fun to see his little emotions develop and change. One of the big slides at the park I do not normally let him go down since it seems a bit big kid and he is just a toddler. He asked to go down this one and smiled. I asked him if he wanted to and he nodded his head.

This slide is one of those slides that is a tube so I was not worried about him falling off, but something else happened. As he was sliding down he put out his hands and legs. This stopped him right in his tracks! He was stuck half way down the slide inside of it. My heart started to panic!! I could not reach him from the top or bottom to push or pull him out. I asked him ever so sweetly to move his feet and come down to mommy. Hes response was "Im Stuck!" My heart was in my throat since I had no way of climbing in there to get him. I started to look around to see if I could ask another kid to go in there to pull him out.

Finally I tapped on the part of the slide where I could see he was in the tube and told him I see a doggie and he came sliding down. It was quite the slide adventure!
