Nora, who is 14 months old, only wants to hang out with older kids, and she is particularly fond of these 3-year-old twin boys at the kiddie gym, Charlie and Nate. These boys are super rambunctious and she always ends up getting trampled on, but she doesn’t mind at all (if this attitude later transfers to dating, we’re fucked.)
So yesterday she was playing with the twins, falling all over the place and laughing her ass off. At one point, I went to the other side of the gym to get my water bottle, leaving her alone with the twins and their mom for a few seconds. Almost as soon as I walked away…
Twins’ Mom (yelling to me): “You need to get back here! It’s not safe to leave Nora alone with the boys!”
Me: “Oh, sorry I was just grabbing water, I’m coming right back. Besides, she’s fine. Honestly, she can handle it if she gets knocked around a bit. She’s tough.”
Twins’ Mom: “No– SHE just hurt Charlie! She’s playing too rough!”
Me (looks at Charlie, who is crying): “Oh my god! I am so so SO sorry!!!”
That your kid’s such a pussy.
