Not so 

At a park in Canvey 
Some children raced with me.
I suggested it….

So off we went to the start line!

We took off, the wind wanted to steal my cap. 
I wouldn’t let it!
How could I come last?! 
These are children, and I’m not that old!
Even my ten year old out ran me!
You can’t run much… 
without proper use of your arms can you?
So blame it on the wind!
Had to protect my cap!

Don’t laugh, this isn’t funny!

  3. Lol:) I quit racing my kids when they were quite young so they never outran me. I know I kidda cheated:). I agree with you, that pesty wind was to blame:) I will be following you via Linky, Pinterest and twitter:)

    Have an amazing day.

    1. Yes it is all the wind’s fault, didn’t want to lose my cap. I would have come first, lol!
      Thanks Evelyn!

  4. Hah! My kids can out run me too…next time I’m putting on a cap so I have something to blame it on (thanks for the tip!). 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha ha… Great tip indeed, I should have come first lol!

  5. Bless you ma. How did the wind get the blame?
    I do not get it.
    Have a blessed day.
    My love to all yours.
    And I am still laughing at the outcome of the race.
    I haven’t raced in years.
    I will probably finish last if I was in the race too.
    We thank God for the wind of the H/S at work in us.

    1. The wind wanted to blow off my hat so I had to hold on to it. Couldn’t come first as a result, lol!

  6. I’m sure both of my kids could outrun me too, and they’d certainly try a lot harder than I would ;).

    1. It was quite embarrassing, since I initiated it with a lot of you know- brags…so I blamed it on the wind, and it is true, lol!
