Why have I been ignorant of this brilliant strategy for 27 years?! (It’s amazing what you miss out on when you’re athletically challenged).

I sent my four year old off to ski lessons this winter – it’s great! Not only can they not go anywhere while they’re on them (except down hill), they’re so tired when they get off them that they can’t do anything then either!

Skis are like hobbles. They can’t go anywhere much on them, other than down the hill. On the flat, smart instructors put the skis on them, so they can’t go off. I remember at Stowe (in Vermont) this escapologist 3 year old got away from its handlers (unqualified UK kiddies), and was gleefully riding up the magic carpet with my adult beginners group, he was LYING on the carpet across their skis. It was pretty funny. Last I heard of him, he’d escaped yet again and had got onto the old, slow and very LONG chair to the top of Spruce mountain. Sans skis. God only knows how he got down. It was a very, very long way.

You are exceedingly brave to experience them on skis. I would never do that.

My only experience of them is on skis, and that works because the skis balance their ridiculous heads. Mostly.

Granny Granny 12:23 am 04 Sep 08

They do fall over a lot.

; )

How do kids like that balance when their heads are like basketballs and their feet are the size of matchboxes?

More like indecision in the face of many choices.

Every now and then you need to go into the room of mirrors and take a good hard look at yourselves?

^^ Those ?s were supposed to be crotchets, but I didn’t seriously think that was going to work…

s-s-a, can she sing? I think there’s a local mob auditioning for “Annie”!

(With all this talk of kids, RoadRage has given up and emigrated to Graceland (??? Graceland, Memphis Tennessee, he’s goin’ to Graceland… ???)

Love what you can do with a mirror and a camera. Very artistic.

Looks like that anti-cloning legislation just hasn’t kicked in yet.
