That being said, I surprised myself by coming up with this totally awesome (and completely un-original) idea of sledding down the stairs. So we put all of our couch cushions at the bottom of the stairs and tried it out. Taylor loved it.
This is about the moment when I realized that it might not have been such an awesome idea.
After much coaxing, I finally got Kent to try it.
After a couple of times where the sled caught a stair and Taylor went head-first down the rest of them, it's amazing he didn't break anything- like his neck or any other limbs. I could just see how a trip to the emergency room would go:
Dr. Hills (Chris or Chad): "Uh, what exactly were you doing that caused his femur to break?"
Me: "Well, I thought it would be really fun if we went sledding down our stairs."
Dr. Hills: "Um, okay." Wow, what an idiot.
Me: "It was actually fun, until the sled caught on the stair and Taylor tumbled downstairs head-first." Wow, that would really suck if he called CPS.
Kent: "It was Steph's idea." Wow, she's an idiot.
I think I'll stop freaking out when Craig throws Taylor around on the couch.
