Today it was nice outside. I decided to let them play in the driveway. We were doing great. First we just used chalk and drew on the drive way. Then they wanted to take their bikes out. The coup type car where you use your feet to get around sort of like the flintstones. I had only one car but this past weekend I was able to get a firetruck where one kid sits on the back and the other uses his feet to move around. All was great they were having a blast. Now, mind you my drive way is very big and slops and I have a pretty busy street.
In a split second Victoria was in the coup car and she started to move fast down the driveway. Here I am screaming and running after her only I was not fast enough. She too got scared and she was screaming too as I was screaming on the top of my lungs THE STREET THE STREET STOP STOP STOP VICTORIA VICTORIA. By the time I reached her she had already went into the street and crossed it hitting the other side of the curb. I'm still shaking from this. No there were no cars coming but just the thought. We could have both been killed. I was not fast enough to catch her. I must have pulled something in my leg too because now my legs are hurting.
When I reached her car and pulled her out of it she was hystically crying and I was so shaken that I couldn't stop hugging her and kissing her and telling her to never scare mommy like that again. I'm still upset. We are never going in the driveway again. It was so scarey.
