Saturday, my husband and I took our two little girls, ages 3 and 5 to the botanical gardens. It was our 7 year anniversary and we wanted to do something nice as a family instead of the usual anniversery dinner date. So, we buy our tickets and and head out to the gardens. The second garden we walk into has a beautiful fountain. We ask our girls to sit in front of it so we can snap their picture. The youngest says something smart-aleky to her sister and her sister pushes her. Into the fountain. INTO THE FOUNTAIN!!! I have never been more mortified in my life!! Of course a black-tie event is being held in an adjacent garden so all of this occured in front of around 30 people all dressed in formal attire. As we pull our soaked three year old out who is choking and gasping from near drowning we are getting the stink eye from everyone. NO ONE offered any assistance. My oldest daughters eyes are so wide and she starts crying and telling her sister she is sorry. She even took her sweater off to wipe Katy's face with no prompting from us. I think it really scared her! My girls are very well mannered and 99% of the time are the sweetest, best behaved kids. But that other 1% ...... boy does it try my patience! We bought season tickets to the symphony's family concerts this year. I'm wondering now if that was a wise decision. I can just see Katy streaking across the stage or Sylvia tripping and falling down a flight of stairs in the middle of a concert. Sheesh. This parenting this is a challenge! Thanks for letting me vent! Does anyone else have any funny disasters stories of their children in public???
