Today, I stepped out of the kitchen to yell at my kids for running in the house. I had just mopped the floor, and did not want them to fall. I fell while yelling and twisted my ankle. At least they know it's dangerous now. FML

Yep. A lot of people would have just let their children fall because they "deserved it". (I know parents who have done things like that..) Thank you OP for being a caring mother, and sorry you got hurt in the process. :c

Thumb me down if you must. This reminded me of something. One time my mom took me to get blizzards and this greasy boy made mine and a clean girl made hers. Me being young and judgemental; asked if she could trade. She said no trying to teach me not to teach me not to be shallow but seconds later she slipped and spilled her blizzard all over herself and the ground. I guess karma was on my side that day :D

Ah, you think they are really going to learn from that? No, they are going to keep running in the house thinking to themselves, "Hey, at least I'm not a klutz like Mom."

Sorry about the twisted ankle and the bruised ego.
