And yeah, this year I felt KidTums should at least be a month old before exposing her to those kind of diseases!
A month!? Do yourself a favor and wait untill she can at least walk, preferrably run. That way if you or Robb ever gets injured at a fair, she can run and hide.
Wait! Oh God no! What if some old carny woman would find her huddled in a corner behind the cotton candy machine. She would then take her under her wing and raise her as her own. Teaching her the ways and means of a true traveling game opperator. She would grow up only knowing the the life of the road, and the cruel punishment that festers in it's seedy underbelly. She'd probably get knocked up at 15 or 16 and have a whole litter of young-uns by 20. That's when your paths would cross again. You and Robb would be standing in line at the Horror house and there you would see her. Cigarette dangeling from her mouth, a 7-ll big gulp filled with Pepsi in one hand, and a suckling infant in the other. Your eyes would meet and for a brief instant you would want to burst out into tears screaming "Kristen! Not the Pepsi! Anything but Pepsi!" You hold your tongue as your vision is torn asunder by a gravel like Cathleen Turner voice, "That'll be 3 tickets!" You manage to tear your eyes from hers as you and Robb huddle together, stunned, in your transport vehicle. "Stay seated!" She barks, as a single ash gently breaks away from her Winston menthal coffin nail. It falls like a snowflake, coming to rest on her newborns brow, as if being cristened into her own life as a traveling freak. The sadness overwhelms you as you begin your journey. As if in slow motion, your carriage takes you into the depths of the dark ride. Not saying a word, but somehow sensing the other, you each shed one single tear knowing that your precious baby has been transformed into what you fear most. A Pepsi swilling carney.
She never stood a chance.
Best to keep her away untill her mid teens, or better yet. Best to just keep her away forever.
