PSA for parents 

Today at the playground I learned of a gruesome injury that ER staff call "slide leg". When a parent and little kid go down a slide together, and the little kid gets their leg caught on something, the extra momentum from the parent's big body can cause the leg to...well...let's just say today we met a 2 year-old boy with a full leg cast, a victim of "slide leg", and the story sounded indeed quite gruesome.

Kiddo generally only goes down the slide solo, anyway, but now I'll be quite strict about that.
