Am I the only one?

Am I just being over protective, or does this scare the crap out of anyone else?

Count me in the scared for my kids lifes when this happens. Andre and his brothers used to throw the kids back and forth to each other, it freaks me out!!!

Yeah I don't like it either. Elli HATES it. She will scream bloody murder if you try to throw her any height. She will yell at Zac too. "ZACCCCCCC NOOOO!" as she is crying her poor little eyes out.

My kids love stuff like that.. Of course, my nervousness depends on who is doing it. If it's Kelly, I have complete trust. Anyone else, though, probably not.

I hate it, but I have reason. When my oldest was 1, my hubby threw her up and it was raining outside, so she was like a bar of soap, he almost didn't catch her.. ugh!

I about crapped my pants!

I'm totally guilty of throwing my kids into the air, but that's a little too high for my me.

that is HIGH!!! I'm usually try to be calm about it...but it does scare me a little...it seems to be a guy thing? ...it is funny though...my youngest is terrified of any heights...wonder if your born with that fear? we haven't raised them any differently? hmmm.

It doesn't scare me that much. I think each parent has their own fears - like I am terrified of Sawyer being hit by a car so I freak out if he runs away from me in a parking lot. My sister is scared of her kids choking. All reasonable fears I think, but for some reason we all focus on some things above others.

I love it - they are having a blast, I can see! :)

Yeah...I get all worried when my husband tosses our child around. There's been a few times where he'll just chuck him into the LoveSac from across the room and I'll just close my eyes and hope for the best. Meanwhile, my little guy is loving it and laughing his head off. I think that's why kids need dads - they kind of counterbalance our maternal, overprotective instincts.

Daren tosses my kids so freaking high, but no, it doesn't bother me...

I'm laughing at Lindsay's comment 'cause her husband does know how to toss the kids high and spin them FAST...and one time I almost threw up just watching him do it to one of my kids once. I can't remember if it was Bo or Jaxon, but they LOVED it. ;o) I'm just one of those irritating "chicken moms". ha ha I'm VERY paranoid...and VERY afraid of heights.
