    Please think of me today...my youngest DD is 27 today and she and her husband are celebrating by....BUNGIE JUMPING!!!! Yow!
    They are living in New Zealand while she does post graduate work and seems that area is into extreme sports!

    Please pray for her safety...and my sanity!

    Thanks.

    "It's okay Mom, don't worry", every mothers most feared words when coming from the mouth of a child.

    They will be fine and probably say something like "you should try it" when they are telling you about their adventure

    Kids!! Even when they are grown they still think of ways to turn your hair grey. I will pray that the cord stays intact.

    You could not get me to do that even with a gun to my head.

    I felt the same way when my son announced he would be climbing Half Dome in Yosemite. He called me when the "ascent" was completed and he was in one piece.

    Your son will be fine but I'm sending hugs anyway.

    Why don't they realize that these kind of things give us grey hair and upset stomachs?????

    Thank you for all your support. I just talked with my DD and DSIL and they survived! and loved it! They chose the option that allowed them to actually dip their heads in the water...good think I didn't know they had that option, I would have been an Uber wreck!
    They tell me that now they have gone once, they can go for cheaper for the next 6 months....EEEEEKKKKKK! I thought the making you tear your hair out stopped by the time they are 27!!!!!!

    They dunked their heads?
    Hmm...I'm thinking that being "down under" now has a different meaning. lol
    I don't think that if either of my girls did that, I would want them telling me about it before either.
    Glad they had a good time and now you can give your heart a rest. Kids! Can't kill em! lol

    I'm glad they lived through it and you too. I too am afraid of heights and would never do that. I won't even ride in an airplane, want my feet as close to the ground as possible. I see no since in tempting fate.

    Well, I'm glad they are OK. I just don't understand the appeal of that, but I'm not 27 either.

    Yeah, that's kinda what my hubby says, he wouldn't do it now but probably would have at 27.

    Agreed! That is what she was going to do but her hubby put it on Facebook so she thought she better tell me before I read it there. Lol

    This reminded me: For my 60th I got a certificate to go on a hot air balloon ride. I decided not to tell my 80 y/o mother because she'll only worry to death. I'll send her pictures afterwards.

    I parachuted when I was in college--my mother told me to NOT tell her the date--just call her afterwards. My father wrote the only letter to me he ever wrote--trying to talk me out of it because I didn't have insurance at the time.

    I did get hurt--but just a little.

    If my kids do that, I'll duck tape them to a chair!

    Now why didn't I think of that?? Oh yea, they are in New Zealand...and I might have been able to wrestle my daughter to the ground to do so, but my DSIL is 6 foot 4....
