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!
