Haha makes me think of my son. When he was almost 3 we got a new kitten and kept it in a cardboard box since it kept hiding. My son kept wanting to get it out and play with it and when I told him he couldn't get it out anymore, I found him in the box playing with the kitten. I've been in trouble ever since. He always finds that loophole.
It's just some water, a little never hurt nobody. : )) plus, I'd rather some wet carpet and an adorable, clever kid than a rowdy kid who's no longer alive because he went outside to play in the sprinkler against my permission then got hit by a car or something terrible.
Not everyone's front yard is as large as a football field. Usually, the street is not very far away at all. If you're a carefree four year old who doesn't have any knowledge of the dangers of cars, you don't care where you run, be that into the street to get a ball you were playing with or towards the sprinkler, which you thought looked a whole lot more fun if you put it closer to the road. Long story short, a kid is a kid. He's too busy having fun to worry about his own death. It's sad that I have to explain this.....
Sassy, you need to understand that I'm not thinking necessarily of the "negatives" but of the "possibles" and trying to prevent the negatives out of those. It seems like you've not been around children much, because it will become blatantly obvious once you do, that kids are so naturally innocent and almost narrow-minded when it comes to having fun. Playing is constantly on their minds. Think back when you were a kid. You have to try to remember the way your mind worked at that age. Anyway the whole point I've been posting these comments is to try to show that children are a blessing. A messy, giggling blessing that we need to do everything in our power to protect, and we need to think about our priorities if we're getting upset about some water in our house rather than having a safe and happy kid.
Sassypants, that is not completely accurate. When a child is running around, carefree, they don't really look where they're going. My cousin is two and him and his friends play a game where you run around the sprinkler and don't let it touch you. Kids will be kids.
He's 4 guys. Cut him some slack. You can replace the inside of your house, but you can't ever replace your kid so you might as well forgive and forget.
