Question: How old is too old to play on the swings?

Options:

Once you're an adult you need to leave the swings for the kids.

I think the teenage years are when you should stop playing on the playground

You're never too old to play :-)

I was at the park yesterday with my kids. I will admit to being a big kid, so when I saw an open swing I snagged it,lol. So here I am swinging and having fun with the kids when this lady walks up with her kid.

Now before I get a chance to slow down or say anything, she gives me a dirty look and asks, "Aren't you a little old to be on the swings? All of my good will evaporated right on the spot. I responded "Nope, are you?" She said, "Yes I am." "The swings are for children, not adults." Me with a smile "Well I guess we'll have to disagree." Then, "Would your daughter like a turn?" "I'm getting off right now." I hopped off and promptly climbed the slide to play with my kids while she looked at me like I had three heads,lol.

Oh I know what you mean. I only gave birth to two but it still happens :-/

After 3 kids I cant do the trampoline any more. Even if I have an empty bladder a little always comes out.

Quoting paganbaby:

Yeah...I found that one out tonight on the trampoline :-(

Quoting NWP:

I voted never too old to play...but I do believe that you DO get too old to go on the swings. Sometime after your 35th birthday something changes in your equilibrium that makes that little motion not so fun anymore:(

I love that one! I hope I can still go on it but it's been a few years. I'm afraid to try it now,lol.

Quoting NWP:

For me it was that ride at 6flags where you stand against the wall and it spins fast enough for you to stick to the wall while the floor drops. I loved that thing as a kid but now it just makes me puke.

I only like the tire swings that lay flat like this.


Not the up and down ones. I don't fit LOL

Quoting wickedfiress:

The swings are the best part!

But I won't get on the tire swing.

What is up with that?? Does it come with age or something?

Quoting FrogSalad:

If I didn't suffer from motion sickness, I'd still play on the swings.  I see lots of adults at the park on the swings next to their kids. 

People (like the lady who chastised you) are weird.

laughingOh I wish I would have said that!

Quoting My6Rock:

 You were way nicer than I would have been. Seriously, I'm a total smart a$$. I would have said, "Nope, I even have one in my bedroom," and winked at her.

Quoting Woodbabe:
