The kids and I went to Hinkle family fun center today, they have a nickle arcade and a bunch of things like bumper boats, bumper cars and laser tag.
We were going to play in the nickle arcade and I told the kids that they can ride one thing of their choice. They wanted to do the bumper cars. You have to be 44in to drive, my 6 year old was fine so was my 4 year old. My poor 8 year old who is EXACTLY 44in (at least according to the Dr at her appt last week) was told she did not make the height requirement and would have to ride with her brother (the 6 year old) poor kiddo started crying. So I check on the height for the other rides, same thing 44in.
I felt so bad. So I decieded to just give all of the kids more nickles for the arcede and let them play games instead of ride. They had a blast, but my poor kiddo kept telling me it wasn't fair. I told her I know but they have their rules and we have to follow them. I feel so bad for her sometimes. She is TINY and I don't think it was until just recently that it hit her how small she really is, in comparison to other kids!
