Things I Have to Worry About

I've decided there are a lot of things that I have to worry about that most mom's don't. This comes as a consequence of living in the country--which definitely has it's perks too! Okay, here's my list in no particular order:

A pool that is usually gated but now just in pieces. Could my children fall in there? You betcha!
This is about the 5th body of water that concerns me on this 52 acres. There are 2 lakes, a pool, a fountain that my kids love to try to climb in, and a stream. All of them scare me.
Trees. We have so many trees here! There are constantly things falling from the sky. This one fell not 20 feet from my kids bedroom. When there is wind out I get scared.

Not to mention rattle snakes, massive snapping turtles, a long steep driveway that has drawn a lot of blood from those knees, cars speeding around corners, on and on and on. Someone's looking out for us!

Okay, I totally forgot about that fish pond. Now I'm even more stressed about leaving my kids there for 2 1/2 weeks. Will you watch out for their lives like you do for your own kids????
