Chain of Events

Sometime last week CBelle had crocheted a chain with some spare yarn I had in my stash.  The yarn was fairly thick.  CB took it outside to use it as a jump rope and when she was done, she tied it to a post on the low fence we have surrounding half of our patio.  Pix and Sprite were playing outside and suddenly I heard a lot of screaming.  Sprite came running inside upset and I looked outside to see Pix running away from the fence, with the yarn rope tied around her neck.  I watched as the slack ran out and snapped her back, falling to the ground.  She jumped up again and started to run again.  I grabbed her and pulled her back, trying to untie the “rope” as quickly as I could.  Pix was a mess.

Apparently, the girls were pretending they were horses and Pix decided to tie herself to the fence.  Unfortunately, a bumble bee showed up and scared the girls.  Just when you think you’ve made every precaution to keep your kids safe, they ultimately find a way to put themselves in a pickle!

  1. Dang, that’s scary! Good thing her sister knew to go get you!
    I’ve preached the “not around your neck” sermon so many times… my kid likes to tie things. :/
