Hey you are a great mum, you thought he'd LOVE it, that is a good thing to let him go in.
How could you predict he'd hate it.
And when he did you gave him cuddles and love. We are not omnipotent sweetie, go easy on

I broke my leg in 3 places playing quazar blush

yeah, what bom said.

You weren't to know. YOu didn't push him in there so you could go to the pub for a few pints of guinness and a couple of fags (in the beer garden of course) you let him go because you thought he would enjoy it.

You are not a bad mum, and he probably seemed ok because he is ok, because you have brought him up to accept that sometimes things don't quite go to plan.

Poor you and poor your ds! It is hard to predict these things, me and dh took dss (6yo) to Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, he is fascinated by volcanoes and earth quakes, had seen this place on a website and was so excited about going in and seeing it. Well it lasted all of 5 minutes - he didn't like the fact it was dark and there were loads of coloured lights and insisted we took him out!

bizarrely it didn't hurt (now we could talk about the constipation from sitting still for 2 weeks under threat of pins .. that's if we want to compare pain)

Don't worry, he'll love it in 3 years

I ran into a wall in Quazar once.

One of my many stupid injuries....
