YSD is turning 15 soon.
DH was talking with me about what he wants to get her. A trampoline.
Me: I do not agree but I have no say, and will not have anything to do with it.
DH: I thought you'd say that. That's ok. What are your reservations?
Me: Her getting hurt as she's not careful and accident prone, her using it for a day or two then she's done with it (15!), Putting it together and proper upkeep, storage, etc....
DH: but she really wants one. She never asks for anything.
Me: I am not telling you no. You wanted my opinion. I'm not stopping you. It's a good way to try to keep her here isn't it? My only requirement is that it not be in the front yard.
DH: yeah, she's almost 15 but she acts younger (this is becoming an excuse quickly....Cover must not let this go on!) So she's going to use it a lot. And it would be annoying to see her in the front yard bouncing around. I could put it on the basketball area.
Me: it's not about her using it in front, it's about other's using it...no DH not neighbors, neighbors KIDS! Jeez. And putting a trampoline on CEMENT? A hard landing?!?!?
DH: yeah, you are right. It's kind of complicated to put together.
Me: ok. Require her to help you or it doesn't get set up.
DH: great idea, she likes to do that.
So you all, this will be interesting. DH is notorious for not quiiiiiite putting things together correctly. Also our back yard has no flat spot. Unless it goes waaaaay back there. This will not end well.
