    Ohhh I GRINNED SO HARD THROUGH THIS!

    I love it. It’s BRILLIANT! I felt like I was right there with you, and I’m sorry, I would have been NO USE because I would have been holding onto something to keep from falling down laughing. LOVELY vivid description.

    Poor you! Did you have to go back to work all covered in mulch?

    I still swing (in fact I did just on Sunday, with my Goddaughter). And I do the climbing frame and the slides and the monkey bars and…no, not the roundabout…not any more.

    Loved this! It reminded me to unleash that inner child…now I want to walk barefoot in the rain, squish my toes in the mud, roll down a big hill and jump in the autumn leaves!

    Would it be wrong if I laughed at the visual I got here of you struggling with the tire swing? If it is, well then, I didn’t. I promise.

    I am glad that you are entertaining your inner child and this post title is gonna bring you some interesting search terms :).

    I will say, too, that the incident in the fourth grade sounds extremely unpleasant. Ouch!

    hahahahah I’m totally laughing with you, not at you.

    I think swinging is fabulously freeing.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
