WELL I GUESS SHE LEARNED SOMETHING ALONG THE WAY!!!

September 17th, 2006 at 08:23 pm

I still have the picture of my oldest daughter about 8 months OLD maybe a little younger eyes WIde open staring at the race horse my dads race horse that had just won & we were all in the picture me olding my baby daughter.

Well this past weekend they had some live races here they only have 1 weekend a year & I asked the kids if they wanted to go to the race track oldest daughter now almost 12 goes whats that?? What do they do??

Thought it was so funny here this baby I thought for sure in 1995 would grow up to be a jockey I know I had high hopes what can I say I was 18 at the time LOL or at least work with horses didnt even know what the horse track was??!!!

I told her its where you bet on horses she said oh no we dont want to gamble & waste our money guess she has been paying attention!!! I wanted to jump up & down she did learn something!!!

Well we went anyways they had free pony rides & all kinds of stuff for kids & we watched two races lost $12 & went home the kids had fun but also realized I lost the $12 & at least oldest daughter knew that WASNT fun to loose money we bet on the color the purple & pink ones bad decision LOL!! Well this was the first time I bet in years & no it wasnt fun for me to loose either even though it was only $12!!!

    Well, you can't knock the horseys, cause sometimes they pay too!!
    My daughters go with my FIL and DH occassionally. They like to look at the ponies. If they win, they eat, if they don't ....well then they hit up Papa!

    oh no way I am not knocking them I am just proud my kids know not to gamble I figure the $12 was worth it the kids liked watching the races & got to ride ponies so it was well worth it!! BTW I had to much fun even though I lost I grew up at the horse track I would definetly probably have a gambling problem if they were here all the time LOL I love them a little too much!!! The onlly thing I would ever ever gamble on!!!

    Try private bets next time, between family only, no cost.

    bet things like a night of doing dishes, or vacuming, or picking the next family game, or chosing where to eat/what to pack.

    OF course you might want to simplify the odds...12/1 owing her 12 nights of dish free, for her only risking one extra night is a bit rough!

    or bet pennies, let em use them the nixt tim eyou have family poker night Smile

    If you bet and won money, wouldn't that make you get a rush and want to try more of it or bet more money on it next time? Just a thought
