See what happens when 2-4 year olds and a 6 year old decide to make their old crib mattress a sled to go down the stairs.  Luckily only a small poke in the face from the glass.  Stories are conflicted as to how the window actually broke.  Surfing maybe?

Brings back memories of MY childhood. I'm glad no one was hurt. Glass can be replaced.

Good that no one got seriously hurt. Some days you have to wonder where they get their ideas. Funny things that I never dreamed that they might do, they will think of. I am sure that my parents would just say "chip off the old block".

Pretty sure the 6 year-old was behind it.

You know those life-sized cardboard cutouts you see in bars? Pat Riley (NBA coach) got rode down a stairwell once by three ...... kids. Ya, kids; we'll go with that. No window at the bottom, but there was a landing and a 90 degree turn. Pat only lasted 3 trips. Rental houses, those were the days!

Seriously, you blaming your kids for this?  It is obviously the work of those no-good neighbor kids.  The glass clearly sustained force from OUTSIDE the house, hence the way it is leaning inward.   :rolling: The presence of the mattress on the stairs is just coincidence.  Nothing to see here folks, move along.....

 

Thank goodness no one was hurt!  Reckon your youngsters learned anything from this?

Hopefully the kids learned how gravity and momentum works. Glad no one got seriously hurt.

 

If you need a chunk of glass to replace the one thats missing now just let me know, I should have one that will work in there.

That's one that we never thought of. Good thing nobody got hurt. That stunt has broken bones as a possible outcome.

Good nobody was hurt.At least they were smart enough to use something padded.We used to go down the stairs on cardboard.That was fast.

Does anyone remember back when the town fathers always wanted to provide a place for the youth to hang out, with a ping pong table and music.       . . . . . and the kids pretty much wouldn't use it?

Glad everyone is OK,
If they won't tell you who did it, I will. He hangs around here a lot. Wuddant Mei is his name.

The last thing Wuddant Mei broke was a bike. Trauma to the shifter, chain wrapped in the spokes, the whole bit. Soooo.... Even division of repair costs and additional chores all around.

I'm simplifying the story, and all potentially guilty parties did fess up (to mom) but no one will tell me who wrecked it to start with. I think Karen knows but won't tell me LOL.
